DESCRIPTION: For all intents and purposes, the new Padrón Family Reserve should be called the No. 47, but instead, they are calling it No. 85, to commemorate the 85th birthday of José Orlando Padrón, the man who created Padrón Cigars.
The Family Reserve line is made with some of the oldest tobaccos in the Padrón warehouses. These Nicaraguan puros are made at the Padrón factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The Family Reserve No. 85 comes in boxes of 10, with a suggested retail price of $20 per cigar. This week’s featured No. 85 Family Reserve is a 5.25-inch by 50 ring gauge Robusto.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: EP Carrillo Short Run 2011
This week’s postscript review is on the EP Carrillo Short Run 2011 Robusto. I first featured this stogie in Episode 287 back on Sunday, September 11, 2011. These cigars have now been resting a total of 1 year, 6 months, 11 days in my humidor waiting for their turn in this postscript review.
