Ep. 0008: Remembering José Orlando Padrón

To bring you closer to the life of the late José Orlando Padrón — the Padrón Cigar family patriarch who died in December 2017 — we went to some of the family, friends, and cigar makers who knew him best.

In this special episode of the podcast, you’ll hear from José Orlando’s son Jorge, as well as Rocky Patel, Ernesto Pérez Carrillo, Jonathan Drew, Carlito Fuente, and José Oliva.

You’ll also hear from tobacconists Craig Cass, Abe Dababneh, and Jorge Valdés.

FInally, Albert Hernández of The Bastards — the “secret society” of Padrón superfans — remembers laughing with his favorite cigar maker, and Fr. Willie García-Tuñón, S.J. tells the story of José Orlando’s request for prayers that he leave this earth on a particular day.
