Since the dawn of man, two basic truths have remained a constant: (a) the love of money is the root of evil, and (b) Padrón Cigars offers every cigar in a box-pressed, natural or maduro variety… In 2015, one of these basic “life facts” was forever altered.
Introducing the Padrón Dámaso, the first-ever Connecticut Shade-style blend from the legendary Padrón family. As mentioned, the Padrón’s have long been known for their Nicaraguan craftsmanship, offering box-pressed cigars with sun-grown (Natural) or Maduro wrapper styles. These cigars, such as the popular 1964 Anniversary Series and 1926 Serie, are well-known for their full flavor and robust bodies. For many cigar enthusiasts, these are the ideal profiles for luxury smoking enjoyment.
But this left a noticeable gap in Padrón’s portfolio. Many smokers prefer a more mild smoking experience—which is a popular choice for morning smoking sessions or other occasions when a more subtle and nuanced palate fits the mood. Padrón responded with Dámaso, named for company founder Jose Orlando Padrón’s grandfather, Dámaso Padrón. With this cigar, Dámaso becomes both the first Connecticut-wrapped and non-box-pressed Padrón cigar.
Experience the renowned complexity of Padrón in a more mellow and nuanced expression. Flavors are complex and buttery smooth, with notes of citrus, cedar, sweet cream, toast, and a nice balance of white pepper spice.
