The celebration of 20 years of making fine cigars is a great thing, and Perdomo fought hard to get where they are today. It began decades ago, with Silvio Perdomo and his son, Nick Perdomo Sr., in Cuba. They were the first two generations of their family to work in the cigar industry, and they were in Cuba when the revolution happened, suddenly finding themselves very unpopular. Nick was shot twice for his alleged ties to Batista, and Silvio would be imprisoned by the revolutionaries for having dared to speak his mind and not loving communism.
Nick would escape from Cuba with the help of the Catholic church, arriving in the United States without a penny to his name and with nowhere to stay and no job. From this beginning, he would grow Perdomo to be a respected name in cigars, one that would be known for its consistency and dedication to quality flavors.
To celebrate 20 years of flying in the face of adversity, they made their 20th Anniversary cigar with a taste of where they came from. The blend is comprised of Nicaraguan fillers, many if not all from Cuban-seed tobacco, which is then lovingly wrapped in a with a Maduro wrapper, producing a full-bodied cigar that tastes of rich espresso and will leave you wanting more.
Luckily, if you buy the box of 24 Anniversary Maduro’s, you will be able to satisfy that hunger. Though not the cheapest cigars, they are a delicious and fairly-priced cigar, one that you will want to purchase a box of whether you find them in an online cigar shop or at your local humidor, and one that you will be pleased to smoke again and again.
