As we reported on The Cigar Authority Show back on May 2nd; the new Padron will be called Damaso and now official details are beginning to come to light all of which we previously reported.
The round cigar is named after Damaso Padron who is the grandfather of Jose Padron, the founder of Padron who in 1890 left the Canary Islands and arrived in Cuba where he would eventually grow tobacco.
The cigar will be available in four sizes and is wrapped in a Connecticut seed wrapper over Nicaragua binder and filler.
- No. 8 (5.5 x 46)
- No. 12 (5 x 50)
- No. 15 (6 x 52)
- No. 17 (7 x 54)
The cigars will come packaged in 20 count boxes and are believed to utilize gold and white packaging and/or bands. While no official pricing has been announced it is expected that the cigars will have a $10 – $14 MSRP.
