With three Cigar Aficionado “Cigar of the Year” awards, the Padrón company has reached the very highest heights of perfection and consistency. But of course, it wasn’t always that way. You don’t simply start out at the very top of an industry – you get there over years of hard work, experience, and development.
Jose Padrón started with $600 of savings and a dream. He opened a cigar company in Miami, having emigrated from Cuba in the aftermath following Castro’s revolution. After discovering the exquisite quality of Nicaraguan tobacco, he ultimately made his way to Nicaragua. Through many hardships (factory fires, office bombings, and more) and many years, he eventually arrived as one of the world’s very best cigar makers.
While the company is known for top-tier commemorative blends, the Thousand Series is the “original” line. And while the other cigars from Padrón are often quite expensive (with good reason), these are far more affordable. View these as a wallet-friendly way to experience the products of the world’s finest cigar company.
These “humble” sticks are still 90+ rated, but at Casa Padrón, those are table stakes. Please browse our Thousand Series collection to find the right size and wrapper (natural or maduro) to suit your tastes.
