Here we have yet another Nicaraguan gem by Tabacalera Perdomo. The Perdomo Slow-Aged 826 is a solid cigar chock-full of an extensively aged blend of four different Nicaraguan filler leaves including a choice strain of ligero leaf that amps up the flavor profile. This is then bound with a Nicaraguan long leaf and finished off with a chestnut-brown Connecticut shade leaf that may be darker than you’re used to. This combination will not only give you a slow, cool, and even burn but a nice zesty core flavor profile of coffee and coca with a hints of white pepper that gives a nice kick to this otherwise medium bodied cigar. The ash holds firm to well over an inch with little flaking. Enjoy with your morning cup of bold black coffee.
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.
