The Padrón 1964 TAA Exclusive Belicoso has started to show up at retail shops, as several stores have begun posting news of its arrival on their social media accounts and websites.

News of the cigar came out in March, shortly after the group’s annual meeting which happened March 23-27 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In recent years the gathering has featured the release of an increasing number of limited edition cigars made just for the group, sometimes unique blends while in other cases such as this, unique sizes of an existing blend.

A representative from Padrón did not immediately reply to a request for the production numbers on the Padrón 1964 TAA Exclusive Belicoso. It is a limited, one-time run according to several retailers who attended the TAA meeting. The cigars, which measure 5 x 52, are priced at $15 and $375 for a box of 25, before taxes.

Several other manufacturers have created TAA exclusives this year, including the La Flor Dominicana 707, My Father 2014 TAA Exclusive, H. Upmann Bank Note, Tatuaje 2014 TAA, AVO 2nd Movement and The Angel’s Anvil from Crowned Heads.

This year also marks also Padrón’s 50th anniversary.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
