Padrón Cigars Inc. is one of the less active cigar companies when it comes to releasing new products, so it's notable that the Miami-based company plans to offer several new sizes in the coming months, including a tribute size for brand patriarch Jose Orlando Padrón.
The first new release, a bigger, redesigned Padrón Cigar Sampler, should begin shipping in a few weeks. Instead of consisting of only one brand, this version will contain a total of eight cigars from the Anniversary, Serie 1926 and Padrón lines. Missing from the sampler will be the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series "A," which will now be packaged on its own.
