Padron 1926 Serie Famous 75th Anniversary Makes Halfwheel "Top 25"

Maduro Version Lands at #20 in Popular Cigar News Site's Annual Cigar Awards List

EASTON, PA--(Marketwired - January 13, 2016) - "2015 was an extremely competitive year for cigars," writes Charlie Minato, editor and co-founder of, one of the most widely-read cigar industry news websites. Recently Halfwheel announced their 2015 Awards for the Top 25 cigars, and tagged the Padrón 1926 Serie Famous 75th Anniversary maduro cigar as its 20th place entry. Famous Smoke Shop, the leading online distributor of discounted premium cigars, specializing in offering the web's widest selection of cigars at the lowest prices, added the Padrón cigars to their stable in November of 2015 in a collaborative effort between Jorge Padrón and Famous Smoke Shop CEO, Arthur Zaretsky, to celebrate their families' 75 years in business, respectively.

In their description of the award-winning cigar, Halfwheel wrote: "The maduro-wrapped version features an exceedingly smooth profile that is filled with a depth of flavors, including citrus, hot chocolate, earth, cocoa and fruity sweetness, along with excellent construction and balance."

The Padrón 1926 Serie Famous 75th Anniversary cigars are made in one size, a 5" x 54 box-pressed robusto rolled in a choice of two wrapper shades: a Nicaraguan Habano natural and Nicaraguan Habano maduro. Presented in boxes of 10 cigars, these full-bodied puros are exquisitely handcrafted with all 5 to 10-year-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos offering a smooth, creamy, and well-balanced smoke brimming with Padrón's signature earthy-spicy flavor profile. Only 3,000 boxes were made, and like all Padrón 1926 Serie cigars, they have individual, serial-numbered labels.

As for what inspired the anniversary cigars, both Messrs. Zaretsky and Padrón acquired a passion for cigars while growing up in their family businesses, and have come to recognize and appreciate what their families created: a confidence and a commitment to quality and customer satisfaction that grew into prosperous, internationally-renowned businesses.

"I'm honored that Halfwheel chose this special cigar we did with the Padrón family for their annual best cigars list," Mr. Zaretsky said. "But the real honor goes to the customers who have supported both of our families for so many years, and hopefully, many more to come."
