PADRON 1926 SERIE
#1 CIGAR OF THE YEAR, Rated 97 by Cigar Aficionado
What a great cigar. The Padron 1926 Serie impressed our tasting panel again and again, rising to the top after repeated tests to become the best cigar of the year. In the end, when only a few cigars remained in the last blind tasting, this one stood above the rest: it was richer, rounder, more complex and rewarding than any other cigar we smoked. This pressed beauty is rolled in the Padron factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, under the watchful eye of Jose Orlando Padron, his son Jorge and the rest of the family members who ensure that the 5 million or so cigars they produce each year are of impeccable quality.
This is perhaps the finest of the line, just blossoming with flavor right from the first puff. It's a complex smoke with perfect balance, showing flavors of chocolate, coffee and nuts, as well as some black cherry. The cigar has a finish so long it seems to never leave the palate.
The Damaso line of cigars is for those who seek the quality and consistency of Padron in a milder taste profile.
The cigar was named in honor of Jose O. Padron's grandfather Damaso, who was the first Padron to arrive in Cuba from the Canary Islands sometime in the late 1800's. "Islenos", or Canary Islanders, were serious people who kept their word and tended to work in farming. In this tradition, Damaso rented a small piece of land in Pinar del Rio and started growing tobacco, giving the Padron family their beginnings in the tobacco industry.
