Padrón No. 85 Cigar Ships Today
Posted: October 10, 2011
The somewhat delayed Padrón Family Blend No. 85 is leaving Miami today and heading to cigar stores. The cigar, initially expected to launch last month, was held up because of the packaging.
Padrón, president of Padrón Cigars Inc. in Miami, stressed there would
be “limited” amounts of the cigar, and that they would be shipping
slowly, in batches. “We’re going to start shipping today, but it’s going
to take us a while to get them out there. They will go out little by
little.” The cigars are made in Nicaragua by two bunchers and two
rollers, who are still making cigars.
“They are mostly maduros,” Padrón told Cigar Aficionado, “with some naturals, too.”
The cigars are pressed parejos measuring 5 1/4 inches by 50 ring, with a suggested retail price of $20. Previous incarnations of the Family Reserve (No. 44, No. 45 and last year’s No. 46) have been named for the anniversary year of Padrón Cigars, but this new size is named after the 85th birthday of José Orlando Padrón, who created Padrón Cigars back in 1964 in Miami.
Look for a review soon in Cigar Insider.
