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.
