Padrón has waited six long years to release a brand new line of cigars, and it is prominently featured at the company’s booth this year.
The Padrón Damaso is a milder and lighter cigar that Padrón feels will appeal to domestic cigar smokers who want something lighter but with the quality of tobacco that they pride themselves on. It is being released in four sizes, the No. 17 (7 x 54), No. 15 (6 x 52), No. 8 (5 1/2 x 46) and No. 12 (5 x 50). It is currently shipping to retailers worldwide.
Jorge Padrón has a bit more to say about it in this video:
It’s a beautiful cigar but there is a certain unfamiliarity with both the branding and cellophane. Needless to say, the booth was full of retailers early on in day one looking to get the line on their shelves as soon as possible.
