After the introduction at the IPCPR in July, Padron Cigar company is finally releasing their latest Piece of Art: “José O. Padron Autobiography”.
At the age of 91, José O. Padrons released a book that tackles the memorable moments in his life, since his life in Cuba, to the departure to the United States, his meeting with Fidel Castro which caused his factory in Nicaragua to be burned by the revolution. He describes how he was able to move his business from a tiny Cafeteria at Miami’s little Havano to the Empire he has by now.
The book comes in both English and Spanish, and in two formats: a regular hard cover and another luxury edition that comes in a box made from the same wood of Padron Cigar boxes.
For this occasion, César Gadea at Padron Cigars commented: “It’s not about Cigar technology or tobacco, it’s about his life. It’s dedicated to his wife, children, employees, everyone who helped get to where he is today & all the immigrants that came to the US to pursue the American Dream.”
This book comes with 2 1964 Aniiversary Series Cigars: Sobrerano (5″ x 52) & Presidente (6″ x 50). The company commented about the Cigars by saying:
“We came out with them in time for the IPCPR in Las Vegas in July this year and they’ve been super successful. As soon as they hit the shelves they’re gone. Our 1926 No. 90 in round tubes which came out at last year’s IPCPR has also been very successful, as well as the Hermoso. It’s got a special place in our display case now.”
It is worth noting that on Friday, September 22, 2017, Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Hermoso Maduro won the “Best Nicaraguan Cigar” at the 17th Annual Cigar Trophy Awards at InterTabac in Dortmund.
