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 the Padron Series cigars for more than 20 years. I consider them as a treat and not an everyday smoke due to the price. I tried one of these this past weekend and all I can say is OMG! If I was limited to only one brand and series smoke for the rest of my life, this would be it. I love them so much I ordered 3 boxes so I will have them around all the time.
