While it was Padrón 50 Years – The Hammer getting a lot of the attention at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Padrón had another release being showcased at their booth. This one is the fifth installment to their Padrón Family Reserve series. The Padrón Family Reserve No. 50 line will also will commemorate 50 years since Jose O. Padrón founded the company bearing his name.
As consistent with the line, the Padrón Family Reserve No. 50 will be released in both a natural and maduro blend. The cigar will be a 5 x 54 robusto.
The Padrón Family Reserve Series was introduced in 2008 with the Padrón Family Reserve No. 44 – commemorating the company’s 44th anniversary. It had been anticipated a subsequent release would take place each year – with a different blend and size. This held to form for the next three years as the Family Reserve No. 45 was introduced in 2009, and the Family Reserve No. 46 in 2010. While there was a 2011 release, instead of calling it the No. 47, it was called the Family Reserve No. 85 to honor Jose O Padrón’s 85th birthday. The series had been hiatus since then as the company prepared for the 50th anniversary. Both Padrón 50 Years and the Family Reserve No. 50 are the first new lines since 2011.
The cigars will be Nicaraguan puros and sold in boxes of ten.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan (Natural or Maduro)
The Padrón Family Reserve No. 50 will be available in one size – a 5 x 54 Robusto.
