The Padrón Serie 1926 No. 90 is a special release which celebrates the life of company patriarch José Orlando Padrón, who turned 90 in June of 2016 and is still active in the company he founded. The cigar exemplifies Padrón in almost every way—it’s dark, it’s rich and it leaves the familiar bold impressions of cocoa, earth and coffee on the palate in the way that only a Padrón cigar can. But it’s unlike other Padróns due to its shape. All other cigars in the Padrón Serie 1926 line are pressed, giving the line its signature look. Not true of the No. 90. This one is round and comes packaged in a glossy tubo—another first for the company. A truly impressive cigar ranked #5 Cigar of the Year in 2016 by Cigar Aficionado.
