New size

Padron adds new vi­tola to its 1964 an­niver­sary Se­ries

Virtuozity - - The Humidor -

Padron made Head­lines Over the win­ter when it sent some re­tail­ers in the United States a new ver­sion of its 1964 an­niver­sary Se­ries. the new cigar was shorter and thicker than other vi­to­las in the fam­ily, and the fact that it was be­ing seeded out sug­gested that the brand was set to launch the new stick to a wider au­di­ence.

the brand has since con­firmed that the cigar sent out to re­tail­ers was a test unit for a new size, known as the Her­moso. it’s four-inch-long cigar, with a 56 ring gauge, but it still slots neatly into the 1964 an­niver­sary Se­ries.

Padron said that the new cigar will be head­ing shortly to stores in both nat­u­ral and maduro blends—as is the case with most of the brand’s ranges. Padron also in­sisted that the Her­moso was here to stay, ex­plain­ing that it was now a reg­u­lar pro­duc­tion for the line.

there’s no word yet on whether this new cigar will make it over to the mid­dle east.
