2014 was a landmark year for Padron, as it marked their 50th Anniversary. To celebrate, they released a limited release production of the Padrón 50th Anniversary Edition Cigar and Humidor. A cut above other special edition cigars, Padrón spent years planning and manufacturing this special release, from the beautifully designed humidor, considered one of the best humidor designs ever made, to the incredible cigars themselves, this release is truly unparalleled. Each unit comes individually numbered, as does each individual cigar, to indicate how special and rare they are.
Humidor #8 wasn’t made available to purchase as it was kept by the company to signify the 8th of September, 1964, the date Padrón began, and changed the landscape of the cigar word forever. While the initially released sticks are sold out, refills will be made available with one notable difference, the serial numbers on the cigars will change from red to black.
The Nicaraguan tobacco used in the 50th Anniversary Cigar was aged for ten years, and many of them were grown by the Padrons themselves. The blend produces a full-bodied, complex, and well balanced cigar. This unique blend is worthy of celebrating 50th years of Padron excellence. The cigar size is 6 1/2 inches in length and 52 ring gauge.
Padron’s 50th Anniversary Edition received an outstanding 94-rating from Cigar Aficionado in August 2016!
