The Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary cigar is Perdomo’s best-selling blend that is currently on the market, a blend made in limited quantities, and a good cigar by any metric. Perdomo is a company that was born from the mind of a second-generation worker in the cigar industry, a man named Nick Perdomo Sr. He and his father, Silvio Perdomo, were working in cigars in Cuba when the revolution occurred, but through a freak circumstance, the though Nick was friends with Batista. Nick Sr. ended up being shot by communist revolutionaries twice, while his father was arrested and thrown in prison for his anti-communist views. Nick would escape to the United States with the help of the Catholic church, and though he may have arrived penniless and with nowhere to stay, he would end up the head of a cigar empire.
The Perdomo reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne Robusto cigar is a fantastic one, one that has been honored around the world. It begins with an extra-aged Connecticut Shade wrapper, into which is placed some of the best Cuban-seed tobaccos that have been grown on Nicaraguan soils in Jalapa, Condega, and Esteli. It creates a delicious mellow smoke with flavors of cedar and hints of a light sweetness, and it is fantastic to smoke and to smell as it is being smoked.
If you’re looking for this rare gem, and you manage to find a box intact, be it at an online cigar shop or in a store, you would be wise to snatch it up before the chance is gone. You’re not likely to come across such a prize again.
