Padron had to tackle a difficult undertaking, after a very good launch of the Padron 1964 series, scoring 90 + all over the world. As expected, we were not let down by the brilliant minds behind the most dynamic, compelling blends in the industry. This groundbreaking breakthrough was published in 2006 to mark the 80th birthday of Jose Orlando.
Padron 1926 Series 80th Anniversary won an impressive 96-rating, noting: "It is undeniably an amazing cigar, teeming with complexity and depth that can only be achieved through inventories of well-aged tobacco. The cigar has the signature Padrón flavor: cocoa, coffee, nuts and toast; it also has orange peel, leather and some spice on the finish. It is made with some of the company’s oldest leaves by only one buncher and one roller, who create but 300 cigars per day."
