Padrón to Reveal Family Reserve at Trade Show Next Week

Padrón Cigars is going to have a rare new release at next week's trade show. The family-owned company is unveiling its Padrón Family Reserve No. 45, a six inch long, 52 ring gauge box pressed cigar made from very old Nicaraguan tobaccos.

The No. 45, first described in the June 16 Cigar Insider, will have a suggested retail price of $25. It will be made in limited quantities, and come packed in boxes of 10.

"The plan is to have it in cigar shops by September 8," said company president Jorge Padrón. September 8 is the 45th anniversary of Padrón Cigars, which was founded by Jorge's father, José O. Padrón.
