Easton, Pennsylvania based retailer Famous Smoke Shop is celebrating 75 years in business, and they now have a special exclusive cigar to commemorate the occasion. Today the retailer has announced that Padron Cigars has made available a limited edition cigar that will be carried exclusively by Famous – the Famous 75th Padron Anniversary Cigar. The cigar is now currently available from the retailer.

The Famous 75th Anniversary Cigar is based off the Padron 1926 Serie line.  It is a 5 x 54 box-pressed robusto. As with most Padron Cigars, the Famous 75th Anniversary will be available in a Nicaraguan Habano or Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper.  The cigars are available in ten count boxes and there is a total production of 3,000 boxes. Pricing is $21.00 per cigar.

Consistent with the 1926 Serie, a serial number will be on the cigar band.  There will also be a secondary band indicating the exclusive cigar to Famous.


The project for the Famous 75th Anniversary is described as a collaboration between Jorge Padron and Famous Smoke Shop CEO Arthur Zaretsky – two second generation men in the cigar business with a combined 115 years experience. Zaretsky’s parents founded Famous Smoke Ship in 1939 in New York City before the store was moved to Pennsylvania.

“Both Jorge and I owe a lot to our parents and the values they taught us,” said Mr. Zaretsky in a press release. “So, in celebrating our 75 year legacy as Famous Smoke Shop, and in the spirit of family, we celebrate you – our customer – with this special cigar from Padron.”
