What were you doing twelve years ago?
I sure as hell can’t remember, but Nick Perdomo was in the midst of cultivating premium tobaccos that wouldn’t be seen again for twelve whole years. After over a decade of waiting, we finally welcome Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage. It’s a three part release that’s sure to knock your impatient socks off. Nick has outdone himself this time around, shelling out three separate blends that each lay claim to 12-year-old, exquisitely fermented tobacco leaves. Dressed in Connecticut, Sun Grown, and Maduro wrappers, Double Aged 12-Year Vintage has a selection for every cigar lover out there. All of the tobaccos in each blend – wrapper, binder, and filler – go through an extensive “double aging” process. They are bale-aged for ten years before moving on to barrel-aging in charred, white oak bourbon barrels for the next two years, resulting in a refined product that’s brimming with flavor. This process ensures that the crop from 2001 has impeccable color, texture, aroma, and flavor.
The Maduro variation explodes with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Naturally sweet with rich and robust complexity, a long, cool finish awaits you with every Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Maduro. This gem begs to be lit as soon as you gaze upon it and take note of the super oily Nicaraguan maduro wrapper leaf. Plumped up with pristine Nicaraguan long-fillers, this medium to full-bodied hit-maker deserves a spot in your rotation.
