Padron Anniversary 1926 Cigars

The Padron Aniversario 1926 is the rarest and most sought after cigar made by Padron.  Made with specially aged tobaccos, the Padron 1926 Anniversary series debuted after the highly successful launch of the Padron 1964 Anniversary line.  It was produced to commemorate the 75th birthday of Jose O. Padron. The Padron 1926 Anniversary cigars are full bodied powerhouse that is made with specially aged and selected tobaccos from Nicaragua.

The Padron 1964 Anniversary Series cigars are a tough act to follow.  The cigar brand repeatedly leads the tastings in Cigar Aficionado Magazine. So when the Padron family set out to celebrate its 40th anniversary, we were skeptical about the prospects for improving on a winning formula. Our doubts were unfounded. The Padron Serie 1926 40th Anniversary cigar in natural wrapper is the best cigar of the year, and may be the best cigar the Padrons have ever made. Each leaf in the cigar is aged for a minimum of five years. The wrapper feels like fine silk. The box-pressed torpedo cigar is superbly crafted with an intensely complex flavor. Slightly stronger than a Padron Anniversary, it has heavy chocolate notes framed by earthy spices, with a luxuriant, long finish.

The initial release of Padron 1926 Anniversary cigars came in 400 beautifully presented, hand-painted, hand-carved boxes of 40. About half those boxes (or 8,000 cigars) were shipped in 2004, split evenly between natural and maduro wrappers, and the rest shipped the following year. We have no idea how the Padrons will celebrate their 50th year, but we can't wait!

With over four years to create a perfect cigar and more than 100 years to create a perfect legacy, the Padron Family understands the significance of time. Padron cigars deliver only the finest, handmade cigars with the flavor and complexity of the Cuban cigar heritage out of which the Padron recipe was born. Padron's primary mission is the exceptional quality of the cigar product, not the quantity produced.  Padron consistently produces some of the highest rated cigars in the world that are highly prized by cigar aficionados everywhere.

As a vertically integrated, family-owned company, Padron pays personal attention to every detail throughout all steps of the tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing process. Padron strives to give you, the cigar smoker, the confidence that each Padron cigar is the same.

A Note From the Founder

Jose Orlando Padron, the founder of Padron cigars tells the interesting story of the origins of Padron cigars

"In 1962, I arrived in Miami, an unknown city in a foreign land.  I had to start from zero.  At first, I recieved $60 monthly, as Government aid given to Cuban refugees.  I was thirty-six years old, strong, and in good health.  Every time I cashed that check, I felt like a burden on the country that had taken me in.  For many days, I looked for a job and did not find one.  Every night, I went home and thought of the future.  I was determined to do something so that I could support my family.

One day, Raul Fernandez, a friend who worked at the Cuban refugee office asked if I had any carpentry skills.  I said I did.  He gave me a gift - a small hammer - which he asked me to put to good use.  The hammer made me feel I had the neccesary tool to become self-sufficient and not depend on a government hand-out.  During the days, I worked as a gardener.  At nights, I did carpentry with the hammer.

My dream was to save enough money to open a factory to make great cigars, like the ones I used to smoke in Cuba.  Through a lot of sacrifice and hard work, I managed to save $600 - money I made working with the hammer.  With that, I made my dream come true and opened Padron cigars in 1964.

I still have the hammer as a reminder of how it all started.  More than fourty years later...The hammer is still here and so is Padron cigars, the brand the hammer helped build."
