IPCPR 2013: Padrón


Padrón rolled out the same booth that we’ve seen for the past couple of years, which just like the brand, has an almost understated class and subtlety and tons of quality.



It’s a very quiet year at the Padrón booth, as the only new product to be released is a four-pack of Serie 1926 cigars, with the Nos. 1, 9, 2 and 6 vitolas included. It’s a new format as they went to a cardboard pack as opposed to the previously used wood boxes, making for a compact and more convenient to carry design. They picked the Serie 1926 line because of its popularity and don’t have plans to expand it to any of their other lines.


2013 is also the second consecutive year without a new Family Reserve, as the company is saving its resources for next year’s 50th anniversary releases. There hasn’t been any talk of what all that will entail, but knowing Padrón, it should be very good.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
