|Padron Family Reserve 85th Maduro|
One piece of information I found out from IPCPR 2011 was that the Padron Family Series No. 47 was rebranded the Padron Family Series 85th in honor of Jose O Padron’s 85th birthday. Unfortunately I did not have much more information than the rename.
From the appearance of the 85th that was on IPCPR, it was clear to me that this was a slightly smaller vitola than the previous Family Reserve series. It consists of 7 to 10 year aged tobaccos to make up the blend. The SRP will be in the $20.00 range.
Here are the specifications on this cigar:
No surprise about this being a Nicaraguan puro:
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro
From looking at the smaller ring gauge and size, the vitola specifications were not too hard to guess. This cigar is available in a single vitola – a 5 1/4 x 50 robusto vitola.
I will have more details when I sample this.
