A Tale Of Two Families • September/October 2022

The cigar industry is no stranger to family-owned businesses, some of which have lasted more than a century. In this unique issue of Cigar Aficionado, we highlight two of industry's most lauded cigar companies, the Fuente and Padrón families, and the special joint project led by Jorge Padrón and Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. to honor their fathers and industry pioneers José Orlando Padrón and Carlos Fuente Sr. We also take a look at 15 other cigar family dynasties who's industry success has spanned generations. Plus, we have an NFL preview for the 2022 season, explore the smoke of choice for several high-profile names and dive into the soaring prices of Cuban cigars. We also have expert cigar reviews that include four cigars with ratings of 93 points and more, plus a vintage smoke in our Connoisseur's Corner that scored 99 points.
