Padron Cigars will be releasing a line extension to the retailers who are members of the Tobacconists Association of America (TAA). The Padron 1964 Anniversary Belicoso TAA Exclusive adds a 5 x 52 Belicoso into the line to both the natural and maduro offerings. Information on this release was made available to attendees of the TAA Convention held March 23 – 27, 2014 in Cabo San Lucas.
The Padron 1964 Anniversary Belicoso TAA Exclusive will be packaged in boxes of 25. It is expected to be released in late Spring, 2014. The cigar will carry a price point of $15.00 per cigar.
The first report by media of this cigar was made on the 3/29/14 Cigar Authority Radio program. On the program, host David Garafolo who attended the TAA convention also indicated the Padron 1964 Anniversary Belicoso TAA Exclusive would be a one time release.
This is the second Padron 1964 Anniversary line extension that has been made available to the TAA. The company already offers a Padron 1964 Anniversary TAA Toro (5 x 54) to its members.
