Editor’s Note: Last week we published a story indicating that the Padrón Family Reserve No. 50 had shipped. That story was incorrect. The retailers we spoke to had confused this product with another new release from Padrón that began shipping a few months ago. We apologize for the mistake and any confusion that might have been caused.
