This cigar 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 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. If you can get your hands on a box or even a single cigar, by all means, do so.
I have been smoking cigars for 40yrs....have smoked everything good and bad.....there is none better then a Padron for me period! for those of you that had a bad Padron, probably has to do with the way it was stored since I have yet to have gotten a bad one.....and I smoke 4-6 cigas a day
