Perdomo 2 Milenario ‘Mistakes’

Steve R
I decided to pick up the game of golf this summer. I call it a game simply because it’s always playing with my mind. One day I’ll do well, the next day I’ll go through $25 in balls. Although I can’t always control how I play on the course, I can control what cigars I’ll be burning while looking for my ball. I’ve always been told never to have ‘good’ or expensive cigars while golfing, since I won’t be able to appreciate them. Look, when I have a cigar, I know I am having a cigar. Regardless of what I am doing, I’ll be able to appreciate it, considering it’s worth appreciating. But, this does make sense on another level, since I find myself dropping or stepping on my cigars quite frequently. And as you probably know, witnessing a pricey stick fall victim to the ground or shoe can be quite painful. The idea: go cheap but keep it enjoyable. The answer: Perdomo2 Milenario ‘Mistakes’.

If you haven’t tried the Perdomo2 line, I suggest you do so. Nick is a damn good cigar maker, and is responsible for some of today’s most flavorful blends. Perdomo2 is one of his veteran brands; a staple in boutique cigar shops from coast to coast that only seems to be getting better with age. Box-pressed and available in either natural (Cameroon) or maduro, the ‘Squared’ is robust and complex, thanks to a man-sized portion of Piloto Cubano Nicaraguan tobaccos that have been aged in cedar casks for a minimum of 5 years. So what are these Mistakes I speak of? A long time ago, in a kingdom not so far from here, the Perdomo factory accidentally shipped unbanded, unbox-pressed Milenarios, a size within the Squared line, to the US. Nick couldn’t watch these quality smokes go to waste, so he sold them to us at a ridiculously low price as a one-time deal. Well, that one-time deal did so well it turned into an ongoing project, called Perdomo2 Milenario ‘Mistakes’: same blend, same aging process, same Perdomo2 goodness, but well under half the price. A fortunate mistake on Nick Perdomo’s part and a gem of a golf cigar for me. Now I can enjoy the rich, robust spiciness of Perdomo2 without babying the cigar for fear of it falling off my cart or crawling underneath my shoe. The cigar part is gravy. Now if I could just fix my horrific slice I’d be all set.
