Damaso is quite a departure for Padron! Featuring a Connecticut-seed wrapper - a first for Padron - blended to be a milder offering - a first for Padron - and coming out of the box both wrapped in cellophane and in a traditionally round, not box-pressed, shape - a first for... ah, you get it! - Damaso was crafted to honor family patriarch Damaso Padron who left the Canary Islands in 1890 to grow tobacco in Cuba.
And really, could there be a better tribute to the genesis of the family's obsession with tobacco? Featuring an incredibly creamy profile, Damaso delivers satisfyingly round flavors of hay, fresh bread, earth, sweet caramel, peanut, brown butter, licorice, cocoa, and light pepper. Is it mild? Yes, absolutely, but that doesn't disqualify it from being a wonderful special occasion cigar, perfect to celebrate a personal milestone or even better, lit up to celebrate a special moment with friends and family.
