Is there anything that can't be improved with the addition of bourbon? Perdomo Cigars certainly knows the answer to this question is no, good sir, there is not. The company first put this thesis to the test after building their gigantic factory in Nicaragua in the early 2000s, putting some of their best tobaccos through a secondary fermentation phase in spent bourbon barrels. But with the acclaimed Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Connecticut cigar, Perdomo said "enough is enough," constructing the entirety of the cigar blend from bourbon barrel-aged tobaccos.
The Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Connecticut cigar begins with a golden-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper; this leaf is aged for 10 years before spending an additional two years in white oak barrels that were formerly filled with the sweet nectar of the gods that is Kentucky bourbon... These same aging/fermentation statistics apply to the binder and filler as well, both of which are made up of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan-grown tobaccos.
What does the Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Connecticut cigar taste like?
On paper, this blend sounds like a dream come true... In actuality? Yeah, it's that good—no joke. The Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Connecticut cigar is medium bodied and filled to the brim with smooth and balanced flavor. This includes a bittersweet texture and abundant flavors of oak, barnyard hay, toasted caramel, mild-roast coffee, and vanilla cream. You may never smoke another cigar blend other than this beauty again... you can thank us later.
