Padrón Celebrating 75th Famous Smoke Shop Anniversary

Famous Smoke Shop, America’s biggest online retailer for premium cigars, celebrates the 75th anniversary of the opening of the original shop in Manhattan, New York, with a special limited release crafted by Padrón Cigars. Famous 75th is a 5 x 54 vitola featuring a third cigar band in red and gold with F75 written on it and appears as part of the company’s 1926 Series.

The anniversary cigar celebrates the opening of the New York Famous Smoke Store by CEO Arthur Zaretsky’s parents David and Rose in 1939. Taking of over his parent’s business, Zaretsky started a mail ordering service and has since then managed to turn the store into America’s online retailer with the widest cigar selection of the country.

“Both Jorge and I owe a lot to our parents and the values they taught us,” said Mr. Zaretsky. “So, in celebrating our 75 year legacy as Famous Smoke Shop, and in the spirit of family, we celebrate you – our customer – with this special cigar from Padrón.”

3,000 boxes of 10 cigars have been produced with Natural and Maduro wrapper and all Nicaraguan tobaccos aged for five years. The MSRP of the F75 is set at USD 21.00/cigar.
