When it comes to offering true, unadulterated, Nicaraguan cigars....none do it better than Perdomo. Each Perdomo handmade truly exemplifies the raw, satisfying flavors Nicaraguan tobaccos have to offer, and when combined with Perdomo's characteristic, top-notch quality control standards and attention to detail, each Perdomo cigar delivers a full-flavored experience that's second to none. For 20 years, Perdomo cigars have set the standard for Nicaraguan handmades, let alone high-end super-premiums as a whole.
Perdomo 20th Anniversary celebrates this rich, family history of Nicaraguan handmades. Each cigar employs bold, Cuban-seed long-fillers grown throughout Nicaragua's black, volcanic soils. Top-priming tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega....patiently aged and skillfully blended to perfection. But then there's the wrapper. Where the fun really happens. Nicaraguan, Cuban-seed sun-grown wrappers from the highest priming, extra-fermented, cedar-aged, then barrel-aged in old bourbon barrels for 14+ months prior to being applied. A gentle box-press is the finishing touch to this impressive Nicaraguan puro. A tremendous effort delivering a gracefully bold and complex bouquet with each cigar. Smooth, creamy notes of earth, coffee, and leather coat the palate as soft hints of pepper complete each puff. The strength gradually builds during the slow burn, completing a satisfying and incredibly well-made premium from the Perdomo family.
Perdomo 20th Anniversary Sung Grown received a well-deserved, 91-point rating, noting: "A bulky Churchill with a clean, oily wrapper. Leather notes and sweet cedar complement nutty flavors and spices that culminate in a brown sugar finish."
Ohhh....Perdomo 20th also won Cigar Journals 2013 award for best value cigar.
