Padilla Cigar Company has announced an agreement with Oliva Cigar Company to handle its distribution in the United States.   The announcement was reported by Cigar Aficionado.

The agreement follows an announcement earlier this year, that Oliva Cigar Company would be handling Padilla’s European distribution.   It also follows a major restructuring that occurred within the Padilla Cigars portfolio in which its popular Padilla Artemis, Dominus, 1932, and Miami lines were discontinued in favor of new lines.  At the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, Padilla launched the new Ecuadorian Habano and Maduro versions of the Padilla Reserva, the Padilla Invictus, and Padilla Miami Maduro   The Padilla Reservas had already been announced that they would be made by Tabacalera Oliva S.A.  The Invticus and Miami Maduro’s will made at El Titan de Bronze in Miami.   Padilla said Oliva will be handling distribution to all of the new cigars

Padilla Cigar Company president Ernesto Padilla made an appearance on the 9/8/12 version of Kiss My Ash Radio and said there would be an announcement made to Cigar Aficionado on 9/10, but did not divulge any specific details.
