When it comes to the Padron Maduro, a real benchmark in the industry, Padron has a leg up in that Orlando Padron grows his own Maduro wrapper. This allows them to get picky and hand select only the best Cuban-seed tobacco leaves in their own field. The Maduro wrappers are then delivered to the trusty hands of their most skilled Cuban-trained torcedores. However, before placing them in the box, the cigars are put aside for a minimum of three years of slow, carefully monitored aging. While there may not be many of the great Padron Maduro cigars, what there are truly remarkable.
