Padron cigars are patiently handmade with Cuban seed tobaccos grown in Nicaragua and aged up to 2½ years. These are true classic and unique-tasting cigars whose outstanding quality defies their reasonable price. Distinguished by their square-pressed shape and coffee and cocoa bean essences, these perfectly balanced puros brim with full-flavor and complexity. Deftly rolled in dusky Natural and dark, shimmering Maduro wrappers, their consistency is attributed to a limited annual production, which keeps them at the peak of flavor. It's no wonder Padron Cigars are among the most sought-after premium cigars among cigar lovers. Founded in 1964 by José Orlando Padrón, the Padron manufacturing process is vertically integrated. This gives them strict control over the quality and consistency of their cigars from the selection and planting of the tobacco seedlings to the rolling of the cigars and final quality checks.
The Padron Cigars legacy dates back over 100 years to their native Cuba. Yet, since 1964 the company has built its impeccable reputation by sticking to its family tradition of producing complex-tasting, handmade cigars with the same Cuban-born recipe and techniques that have been used for generations. As the company motto states: "When Padron is on the label, quality is a matter of family honor." When asked about their limited annual production, the Padrons emphasize that what counts is the quality of the product, not the quantity produced.
