Serie 1926 was introduced to commemorate the 75th birthday of Jose O. Padrón. For many years, It was the most limited and sought-after cigar rolled at the Padrón factory with scarce distribution, and an enormous demand by aficionados worldwide. The blend is fuller-bodied than its predecessors, and has a full spicy flavor that entices the palate. To achieve this unique taste, the tobaccos used are aged for a full 5 years. This masterpiece scored a major win with a 97-rating and #2 Cigar of 2017 award, with the publication stating: "...complex smoke with perfect balance ...flavors of chocolate, coffee and nuts, as well as some black cherry ....a finish so long it seems to never leave the palate."
