Padron booth IPCPR 2016

Padrón kept the cigar world waiting for announcements about the majority of its new products; the two new Dámaso additions have been out and chattered about for some time, but the remaining new releases got their first look when the trade show doors opened.

Padron No 90 Tubos boxes IPCPR 2016

Padrón 1926 Serie No. 90

The highlight of the new releases was the No. 90 vitola being added to the 1926 Serie line, and for several reasons: first, it celebrates the 90th birthday of José Orlando Padrón, who unfortunately was unable to attend the trade show. Second, it’s the first Padrón cigar to come in a tube. Third, it’s round, a break from the box pressed sizes of the rest of the line. The company isn’t saying definitively that there will be more tubes, but this could certainly be the start of something.

Padron Damaso No 32 IPCPR 2016

Padrón Dámaso Extensions

We’ve heard chatter about the No. 32 and No. 34 for a while now, as the company wanted to create a slightly fuller bodied version of its lighter Dámaso blend that debuted last year. Small amounts were sent to select retailers but now it is available to all accounts. If you can’t remember which size is which blend, the company has changed the secondary band from a white background to a red one to make it easier.

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.
