Padrón Cigars celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and it will mark the occasion in the fall by offering a limited number of handcrafted humidors containing 50 Nicaraguan puros created specifically for the occasion. The cigars will be rolled in an exclusive new shape and made from the most aged and most refined tobaccos in the Padrón warehouses. This is quite a distinction, because some of the cigars made by José Padrón, an 87-year-old Cuban expatriate, and his sons Jorge and Orlando are among the world’s most coveted; Padrón’s best cigars have more cachet than those from Havana. In addition to the puro-filled humidors, the company will release a limited number of Padrón 50th-anniversary cigar accessories in the fall.
