Nicholas Perdomo Jr., president of Nick's Cigar Company, is a third generation cigar-maker. His grandfather was in the business in Cuba, and his father, Nick Sr. has worked in the cigar industry in both Cuba and the United States. Nick Jr. was born in the United States shortly after his family fled from Cuba after the revolution in 1961. Nick Sr. worked for numerous cigar companies and in other industries until the early 1970s when the family moved to Miami and Nick Sr. returned to the cigar industry full time. Originally all of Nick’s cigars were made in Florida, but due to the high labor cost, most of the cigar rolling is now done in their own family run factory in Nicaragua under the watchful eye of Nick's father, Senor Perdomo. Quality control is of utmost importance to the Perdomo family and each cigar goes through 15 quality control steps before being shipped. The La Tradicion Cabinet Series is a medium-to-full bodied line available in Natural, Rosado, and Maduro wrappers and you’re going to have the pleasure of smoking one of each. The Series is a blend of all Cuban-seed Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan long leaf filler tobacco which utilizes an Ecuadorian binder. The Natural wrapper is USA/Connecticut shade while the unique Rosado and Maduro wrappers are both Ecuadorian. Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar Insider conducted a vertical tasting of the La Tradicion line in which each and every cigar rated in the upper 80’s and low 90’s. "Nick's Cigar Co. in Miami isn't a household name, but it's making some impressive smokes. Its La Tradicion Torpedo with a Rosado wrapper scored 91 points. It’s impeccably crafted and full of flavor." Cigar Insider (June 1997, Vol.2 No. 6).

We found the line’s corona to be very well constructed, offering an even burn, easy draw, and firm gray ash indicative of a lengthy fermentation period. Note a creamy smooth and flavorful taste attributed most likely to the costly Connecticut Shade wrapper. We found the body to be rich, smooth, complex and perhaps slightly sweet. Overall, an outstanding medium-bodied smoke with quite a bit to offer. Consider smoking it with a full-bodied Chardonnay or English styled ESB Ale.
