Marking the 10th anniversary of cigars made by Perdomo, this Maduro is in celebration of the La Tradicion Perdomo reserve line, the company’s original line. Perdomo cigars have been receiving outstanding scores from Cigar Aficionado, Smoke Magazine, and Cigar Insider for years. In fact, four of the top fourteen cigars rated by Cigar Insider have been Perdomo Reserve cigars. Debuting in 2008, the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary is packed with Nicaraguan Cuban-seed long leafs from the black volcanic soils of Esteli with a Nicaraguan binder and wrapped with a rich, dark, and oily sun-grown maduro broadleaf. The stellar combination will lead to flavors of chocolate, coffee, sweetness, earth, and pepper. We paired ours with a spiced rum.
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.
