However, for the first time, the cigar will be based off their Serie 1926 blend and will be released in both the natural and maduro blends The Padron Serie 1926 No. 47 will introduce a 5 1/2 x 50 box-press vitola. According to an article by Cigar Afcionado, the No. 47 will hit retailers this June.
The 5 1/2 x 50 box-press is a popular size that is found in the Padron 1964 Anniversary blend with the Exclusivo vitola. The reference to No. 47 refers to the fact that this was unveiled at the 47th TAA Convention. At press time the convention is currently going on at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic.
