While past years have featured new blends and luxurious, limited edition displays, Padrón’s biggest introduction for 2016 simplified the approach—introducing a new size and packaging for their classic 1926 Serie blend.

The cigars were made in commemoration of the brand’s patriarch, José Orlando Padrón and his 90th birthday. Along with a tweaked robusto size, Padrón showcases two “firsts” for the line, including the first use of a non-box-pressed shape and Padrón’s first use of tubo packaging.
