If ever a cigar company born of Cuban knowledge represented the American ideal of the underdog coming out on top, it would be Perdomo. The founder, Nick Perdomo Sr., came from a family that was involved in the cigar industry in Cuba before the revolution. He and his father had worked in some of the best cigar manufacturing facilities in the country, including Partagas, but when the communists took over, Nick and his father became very unpopular. Nick was alleged (wrongly) to be a friend of Batista, and his father was an outspoken anti-communist. His dad was rounded up and tortured for his political beliefs, and Nick was shot twice for having taught Batista a bit about the very profitable cigar industry in Cuba. With the help of the Catholic church, Nick Perdomo Sr. made it into the United States, and though he arrived with nothing in his pocket and with nowhere to live, he would eventually spread his name around the world with the cigars that he produced.
The Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne Churchill is a Churchill-length cigar made in Nicaragua. The wrapper is a Connecticut Shade wrapper, which has been aged to mellow it for at least six years until it is creamy and rich in flavor. This wrapper is then artfully rolled around the best Cuban-seed filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, from places like Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega.
All this tobacco comes together to make a cigar that can be called complex, creamy, and just a hint of spice, a cigar that is delicious and creamy in texture and that is medium-mellow in tone. If you’re looking for a great cigar, whether you’re looking to smoke it in a lounge or you’re looking to buy cigars online and have them shipped to your home, the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne Churchill is a good choice.
