Jorge Padrón on Padrón Dámaso

 

We recently called Padrón Dámaso the most game-changing release of the 2015 IPCPR trade show. The cigar comes from a manufacturer for whom the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper is a major shift from the full-bodied, strong cigars on which Padrón built a reputation.

We spoke with Jorge Padrón about the thinking behind this new brand and what it's felt like for the Padrón family to launch a product well outside its usual wheelhouse. 

We also asked a couple of things on behalf of readers who submitted their questions via social media and cigarsnobmag.com. Stick around through the end of the video for those and look out for opportunities to submit your questions for future interviews.
