Padron 1926 CigarsThe Padron 1926 Serie was introduced by Padron Cigars in 2002 in honor of founder José O. Padrón's 75th birthday, but most especially in honor of his lifetime of accomplishments in the tobacco industry. They set themselves the task of creating a cigar that exhibits his favorite characteristics - a full-bodied cigar that combines complexity, balance and flavor in equal measure.  

Padron Cigars is among the largest boutique manufacturers in the world, and one of the few who limits their production to assure the quality of their cigars from the ground all the way to their customers’ hands. Currently managed by three generations of the Padrón family, the company is under the leadership of José O. Padrón and Jorge Padrón. The family limits their production so as not to need a sales force, allowing them to oversee all of their customers’ needs themselves in an effort to assure the integrity, honor, and quality of the family name: "When Padrón Is On The Label, Quality Is a Matter Of Family Honor."

Since 2002, the Padróns have added several other lines to the 1926 Series family including 1926 Serie 40th Anniversary which was introduced in 2004 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the company's founding. The 1926 Serie 40th Anniversary is noted for its Nicaraguan Natural Habano wrapper, which has a toastier finish than the sweeter flavored regular series maduro wrapper. The entire 1926 family, however, is completely blended with all Nicaraguan tobacco that has been aged for a full five years, making these cigars among the smoothest and most highly regarded cigars in existence.

The dark chocolate maduro wrapper of the regular 1926 Serie line looks delicious enough to eat. Each box-pressed cigar, a trademark of the Padrón cigars, is banded by the famous Padrón band, which is embossed with a unique serial number. The construction of the 1926 Series cigar is just what you’d expect from the limited production Padróns: perfection. Pre-light, the draw was easy even though, the cigar is tightly-packed and hard to the touch. After cutting the cap, the cigar exudes the earthiness that is characteristic of the Nicaraguan Puros with a hint of chocolate.

The burn is fairly even although it does sometimes require a minor relight or two. In spite of the tight pack, the draw is extremely easy, with each puff producing a satisfyingly large amount of smoke. The ash is gray in color and holds extremely well.

The 1926 Serie is a cigar smoker’s fantasy come true—the flavors are a complex montage of delicious tastes permeated by the earthiness that comes with a Nicaraguan Puro. The first third sees the flavors blossom into an extremely pleasing medley of deep rich chocolate and coffee.  The second third sees the addition of a deliciously peppery spiciness which settles into a predominantly chocolate flavor intensified with the addition of even more spicy notes in the final third.

The Padrón’s 1926 Serie is a full spectrum, wonderfully complex cigar which certainly explains why it is so popular and highly regarded. While too dear to be in most smokers’ everyday rotation, special occasions demand a really special cigar, and Padrón’s 1926 Serie is certainly that.
