Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2015 #5 Cigar Of The Year – Rated 94
Padron Family Reserve No. 50 Natural is a 5 inch by 54 ring cigar which was named the #5 cigar of 2015 by Cigar Aficionado magazine. The Padron Family Reserve cigars will no doubt go down in history as some of the greatest cigars of all time. A rich family legacy, combined with unmatched quality and blending prowess and some of the world's finest tobacco, make the Family Reserve cigars so incredible that they retain a near permanent residence in Cigar Aficionado's Top 25. Handmade in Nicaragua, this stick flaunts all Nicaraguan tobacco—filler, binder, and wrapper, all grown on the Padron farms in the heart of Nicaragua. These sun grown habano leaves give the smoke some serious power, along with velvety smoothness.
For a beginner to try this cigar would be silly. Only the most highly seasoned palates can appreciate the cigar that knocks down top 5 contenders year after year in Cigar Aficionado. It's brilliantly complex and very strong, yet balanced like no other. A great pairing with bourbon or port, this cigar can only be compared to Padron's other finest: Padron 1926 and 1964 Series. For a discriminating smoker, it would be nearly impossible not to be impressed with the Family Reserve.
