Recently, executive editor David Savona ..., 27 Aug 2015 [cached]
Recently, executive editor David Savona spoke with Padrón president Jorge Padrón to get insights on the creation of the brand, and to reveal new details of what goes into this new cigar line.
Padrón: The answer is a simple one-we want to give more people the chance to try Padrón cigars.
This is something small production, focusing on the quality, focusing on the taste that we are looking for and letting the chips fall where they may, to ensure that we can develop that customer slowly, like we did with Padrón.
They can all rest assured that Padrón will always be Padrón.
"This is a totally new blend, ..., 24 June 2015 [cached]
"This is a totally new blend, completely different than anything we have done before," Jorge Padrón, president of Padrón Cigars Inc., told Cigar Aficionado. "It's Connecticut our way."
Called Padrón Dámaso, the cigars are rolled with Connecticut-seed wrappers and a blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos. Padrón Cigars Inc. will officially unveil the cigars next month at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show in New Orleans and expects to ship them to retailers in late August or September.
Jorge Padrón said the cigars were geared "for those who seek the quality and consistency of Padrón in a milder taste profile. ... We've never had a cigar in that segment of the market and it's time we do something about it."
When it came time to think of a name, Jorge Padrón turned to his three children.
"Dámaso laid the foundation for what's come for Padrón," said Jorge Padrón.
Jorge Padrón said his strategy was to make a milder cigar, but one that still had character. "It has to taste like tobacco, it has to have flavor," he said.
The blend is different, and the tobaccos are treated differently, so the new cigars are not being rolled in the main Padrón Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, but in a separate area in the Padrón compound.
"It's made next to the existing factory, in an area where we used to store [tobacco] bales. We moved the bales and made that into the [Dámaso] factory," said Jorge Padrón. "Everything is still the same-we just didn't want to mix the two. It's important to separate."
Jorge Padrón said the change required hiring some new workers, but the majority of the workers on the new project had worked at Padrón before. "Ninety percent of the people are coming from within," he said.
Jorge Padrón said he had no short-term production targets for Padrón Dámaso.
