Padrón Teases Dámaso No. 34 (Update)


Padrón appears to have a new size of its Dámaso line on the market, a torpedo called the No. 34 that measures 6 inches in length with a ring gauge of either 50 and 52, depending on which retailer’s site you visit.

Several retailers on the east coast have been posting information about the cigar, with at least three who have listed it for sale. The Cigar Room in Fort Lee, N.J. posted an image of the cigar, calling it an “unreleased” blend but offering it for sale.


JR Cigar said that attendees at a dinner on April 6 with Jorge Padrón will receive the Dámaso No. 34 as part of a sampler pack, calling it a “yet-to-be-released” size.

Multiple e-mails to Padrón seeking additional information have gone unanswered, but retailers who have received the cigar have told halfwheel they were informed the blend is slightly different, with the No. 34 blended to be stronger than regular line. Those retailers are believed to be part of a test of the updated blend.

Padrón recently tested the 1964 Anniversary Hermoso earlier this year at a limited amount of retailers before its national release this month.

Price wise, the Padrón Dámaso has been listed at $14.50 per stick or $290 per box of 20.

The Padrón Dámaso was released at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show 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).

Update (April 8, 2016) — Added info about the cigar being a different blend according to certain retailers. This post was originally published on April 8.

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, 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.
