Perdomo is one of those stories of triumphing through adversity. The family was part of the cigar industry in pre-revolution Cuba, and they were there when the revolution took place. After the revolution, they found that their anti-communist political ideas were not so popular; Nick Perdomo Sr. would be shot twice for alleged ties to Batista (the one-time dictator of Cuba that Fidel Castro replaced), while his father would be arrested by revolutionaries for being an outspoken anti-communist and locked up for many years.
Thankfully, Nick Perdomo Sr. would manage to get out of Cuba with the help of the Catholic church and escape to America as a refugee. He arrived here penniless and homeless, and from these beginnings he built up a cigar brand that is known throughout the world.
When first you look at the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary cigars, the creamy-tan color of the wrapper denotes its age, while the band makes it quite clear that this cigar is from the 10th Anniversary line. The wrapper is a Connecticut Shade wrapper that gives off a sweet aroma with hints of cedar, expertly aged to mellow it. The tobacco within the cigar is all double-aged Cuban-seed tobaccos, grown in Nicaragua in Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa. The result is a medium-mellow bodied cigar that is tasty for the aficionado or the neophyte alike. The cigar is known for its consistency and its mellow flavor with cedar notes and creaminess in the texture.
If you’re looking for a great cigar, whether your buy cigars online or you buy them at a lounge, shop, or even a restaurant, you will be glad that you purchased the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne Robusto.
