A question of family honor.
The award-winning "1926 Series" debuted in 2002 on the occasion of José O. Padrón's 75th birthday and is available in three formats, Natural and Maduro respectively. In keeping with tradition, the cigars of this series are offered box-pressed.
Every now and then Padrón® creates a special release for special family events. The reason for the "1926 Special Release" is the 40th Anniversary of Padrón® Cigars with the "40th Anniversary" and the "80 Years Edition" in honor of the 80th birthday of José O. Padrón. Both formats are available in Natural and Maduro respectively. To protect these particular cigars from counterfeiting, they have a double ring with an individually numbered guarantee mark.
