The History of Padron Cigars

Padron Cigars was founded by Jose Orlando Padron in 1964 in Miami, Florida, making it one of the newer premium brands of cigars on the market. Jose built Padron Cigars from the ground up, utilizing his Cuban-born grandfather’s techniques and a single torcedor, or cigar roller, to produce about 200 cigars daily. Jose Padron visited Nicaragua in 1967, and within three years began producing cigars on Nicaragua soil, but civil war destroyed the factory repeatedly, and when President Regan declared an embargo on Nicaraguan goods in 1985, he moved his operation to Honduras for the following five years. He returned to Nicaragua once the embargo was lifted, and the manufacturing side is still carried out there. Jose Padron’s son, Jorge Padron, is also a part of the thriving company, which controls all areas of its business internally, from growing, sorting and processing the tobacco, to rolling, labeling, and distributing the final product.

About The Padron Product

Padron Cigars come in three distinct product lines: the Padron Series, the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series, and the Padron 1926 Serie. Each of these collections offers a unique array of products that have a different taste, flavor and feel. The following is a look at how the Padron product lines differ from each other:

Padron Series – The Padron Series includes the Magnum, Executive, Churchill, Ambassador, Panetela, 4000, Palmas, 7000, 6000, 5000, 3000, Londres, 2000, Delicias, and Corticos varieties.

Padron 1964 Anniversary Series – The Padron 1964 Anniversary Series includes the “A,” Diplomatico, Piramide, Monarca, Superior, No. 4, Torpedo, Imperial, Corona, Exclusivo, and Principe cigars.

Padron 1926 Serie – The Padron 1926 Serie includes the No. 1, No. 9, No. 2, No. 6, and No. 35 varieties.

Padron cigars are also available from the Family Reserve collection and as special releases, and in sampler packs so you can try each series to see which you prefer.

Over the years, Padron cigars have received many honors for their products, including one in 2004 from Cigar Aficionado Magazine, which recognized the 40th Anniversary cigar as the best cigar of the year. Padron’s 1926 Serie No. 9 was bestowed the same honor in 2007, as was the Family Reserve line’s No. 45 in 2009.
