America loves a good underdog story, and there are few out there that are better than the story of Perdomo cigars. The family was involved in the manufacture of cigars in Cuba, but after the revolution and the communist takeover, they found themselves less than popular (and their anti-communist stance probably didn’t help endear them to the new government). One family member was put into jail for around a dozen years, and Nick Perdomo, Sr. was himself shot twice.
With the help of the Catholic church, Nick Perdomo Sr. managed to get into the United States. However, their help only extended so far; they brought him into the country, but they didn’t do much other than that, and he found himself with empty pockets and nowhere to sleep. Luckily, through hard work and perseverance, he was able to become his own cigar manufacturer, and now Perdomo stands for quality cigars being offered at good prices that anyone can enjoy, whether they’re buying it in a cigar store or an online cigar shop.
The Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sungrown Epicure is a fantastic and affordable cigar, and one that you will find much to your liking. You start with a sun grown wrapper, which you then age, then age for ten more months in a bourbon barrel, into which you fill tobaccos from Nicaragua, from places like Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega. This leaves you with a medium-full flavored cigar that will leave notes of earth, spice, and leather on the tongue.
If you’re looking for an affordable smoke and you enjoy bourbon barrel-aged cigars, Perdomo has a great offering for you
