In the middle of the 1800s when they make $7 dollars got every 100 pounds (45kg) of tobacco, the Padron family bought a small farm at Pinar del Río region of Cuba, Las Obas. They continued to buy farms around the region including a factory in Piloto, this is where Jose Orlando Padron's company, Piloto Cigars Inc is derived from.
The most distinguished view from most Malaysian is that Padron is almost always available in two choices, the Natural light brownish cigar and the Maduro which feature a more dark and oily wrapper. Most of the time, there's a misconception that darker colored wrappers are generally more 'Stronger" cigar and this is not always true.
Padrón has received numerous awards and high ratings from many respected cigar critics, connoisseurs and aficionados. The Thousand series has received over sixty one ratings, the lowest being an 88 and the highest being a 94 on a one hundred point scale. The Padrón 1964 Anniversary blend has received sixty two ratings, the lowest being a 90 and the highest being a 95 on a one hundred point scale. The Padrón Serie 1926 blend has received twenty seven ratings, the lowest being a 90 and the highest being a 97 on a 100-point scale.
