The story of Padron Cigars is as rich in history as their cigars are rich in Cuban heritage. Today, Padron Cigars are hand made in their facility in Nicaragua where every step of the manufacturing process, from the selection and cultivation of Cuban-seed tobaccos to the rolling and final inspection of every cigar, is overseen to ensure absolute consistency and quality. The original Padron Series Cigars employ sun-grown habano tobacco aged two and a half years for a medium-to-full-bodied flavor with a distinctive spiciness. Padron 1964 Cigars offer a mellower, smoother taste with tobaccos aged four years. The Padron 1926 line uses tobaccos aged a full five years to create extraordinary complexity in a smooth and balanced smoke.
