The story of Padron Cigars is as rich in history as their cigars are rich in Cuban heritage. Since the Padron headquarters first opened in Miami in 1964, the Padron family has overcome strife and instability in their mission to produce cigars worthy of life's special moments. 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. All Padron lines are blended from carefully aged tobaccos to produce an exceptionally smooth and complex smoke. Padron cigars are Nicaraguan puros, as all of the leaves utilized to create the cigar are cultivated from the fertile soils of Esteli, Nicaragua. This mesmerizing mixture of hearty tobaccos produces a rich, robust smoke and offers a complex array of flavor capped off with a sweet finish. The blend is available in two equally impressive varieties : natural and maduro.
