The story of the Perdomo cigar company is an interesting one. To put it shortly, the family was involved in the making of cigars in Cuba before the communist revolt. Indeed, they had been involved with many of the big Cuban names, including Partagas. After the revolt, though, their anti-communist opinions made them much less popular with the revolutionaries. Nick Perdomo Sr. would be shot twice for his alleged ties to Batista, and his father would be arrested for being outspoken against communism and its ills. With the help of the Catholic church, Nick, would escape to America as a political refugee, arriving in the United States without a penny to his name and with nowhere to stay. From there, he would make Perdomo a name that you can find in cigar shops across the United States and the world.
The Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne Epicure is a great cigar, whether you are going to be smoking it in a lounge or ordering from an online cigar shop to be smoked in your house. Made in Nicaragua, it takes a Connecticut Shade wrapper, which is then aged for at least six years until it has a sweet, creamy aroma. Into this they place some of the best Cuban-seed tobacco that is grown in Nicaragua, taken from fertile places like Jalapa, Condega, and Esteli. This tobacco is also aged to mellow it, leaving you with a medium-bodied cigar that is flavorful, complex, and creamy, with a hint of spice.
If you’re looking for a limited-run cigar that won’t disappoint, the Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne series is a great option.
