The Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage series is often considered the pinnacle smoking experience within the company's famed portfolio of Nicaraguan cigars. This is due to the collection's extensive tobacco processing, showcasing Perdomo's prized barrel-aging process throughout the entirety of the blend.
Indeed, after gaining critical acclaim during the cigar boom of the '90s, Perdomo set out to fine tune every aspect of the cigarmaking process. This included their own tobacco fields, tobacco fermentation, aging, and one of the largest factories in Nicaragua, among many other measures. Not only this, but Perdomo began sending their tobacco through a second fermentation process, taking on added complexity when finished in spent bourbon barrels. While this step is used on various tobaccos throughout the company's collection, it is best highlighted with the Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage series, including Maduro, Connecticut, and Sun Grown variations of the blend.
The Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Sun Grown cigar is the most zesty experience of the three. The blend begins with 10-year aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos throughout the binder and filler. These select leaves are then re-fermented in bourbon barrels for an additional two years. The same aging and finishing is applied to the wrapper, which is a spicy Nicaraguan sun-grown leaf.
What does the Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Sun Grown cigar taste like?
The Perdomo Double Aged 12-Year Vintage Sun Grown cigar is unbelievably full in flavor, texture, and body. This cigar is for those that crave the highest level of sensory overload, firing on all cylinders with a medium-full strength and fiery flavors of red pepper, earth, sweet oak, peppered steak, and sweet caramel.
