Perdomo is one of the brands from which you know you’re going to get a good smoke nearly every time. They are known for their consistency and use of great tobaccos, and with Nick Perdomo at the head, you know you’re in for a treat. The Perdomo Estate Seleccion Vintage Maduro is a Nicaraguan puro, meaning all the tobaccos used are from Nicaragua. Starting at the core, there is a bevy of long-leaf Cuban-seed fillers as well as the binder, and it’s finished with a thick, oily and dark chocolate maduro wrapper all grown from the lush fertile valleys of Nicaragua. Medium to full in body, this complex smoke will lend notes of cedar, coffee, and earthiness. Delicious from start to finish, this smoke will pair best with an Aberlour 16 Year Scotch.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
