The 1926 Series was developed in commemoration of Jose O. Padron's 75th Birthday. The development of this line was to honor his lifetime of work in the tobacco industry by creating a cigar that captures some of his favorite characteristics - a box-pressed full-bodied smoke that combines complexity, balance, and flavor. All the tobacco used in these cigars have been aged for 5 years, and each band is embossed with a serial number.
Padron's 1926 Series has been honored time and again, especially in 2007, when they snagged the #1 spot, and in 2004 when Cigar Aficionado featured them on their inaugural Top 25 Cigars of the Year list. The accolades keep rolling in, with a 97-point rating in 2017 and another runner-up position on the Top 25 List that same year.
If you can get your hands on a box or even a single cigar, by all means, do so - you will not be disappointed!
