Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage
The Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage is being re-released in 2015 following Tabacalera Perdomo’s success with this limited release line which debuted in 2014. The blends remain the same, with 12 year old 100% Nicaraguan fillers and binders and Ecuadorian Connecticut, Nicaraguan Sun Grown, and Nicaraguan Maduro wrappers. Anthony's Cigar Emporium has already received its shipment of the first release of this line, the Connecticut Shade and will receive shipments of the Sun Grown and Maduro wrapped Double Aged 12 Year Vintage cigars as soon as Perdomo ships them to retailers.
From Tabacalera Perdomo's Press Release:
<<The Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage is a blend of Perdomo’s finest and most cherished 12 year old fillers, binders, and wrappers. These rare tobaccos have been carefully bale aged for ten years and then barrel aged for an additional two years. Using a proprietary double-aging process, each leaf of seco, viso, ligero, binder, and wrapper is aged in charred, white oak bourbon barrels. This unique double-aging process ensures the perfect color, texture, aroma, and flavor in these tobaccos, making each cigar a well-balanced and full-flavored smoking experience.
The first release, scheduled for July 2015, will be in a beautiful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, offering a smooth smoke with a creamy complexity, slight hints of caramel and cedar, with a rich, buttery finish. The second release, scheduled for August 2014, will be in a rich Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper, offering a smooth smoke with a spicy- sweet complexity, slight hints of oak and almond, with a long warming finish. The third release, scheduled for September 2015, will be in an oily Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper, offering a smooth smoke with a natural sweet complexity, hints of dark cocoa and coffee, with a rich, robust finish.
Created using the Perdomo family’s time-honored Cuban traditions, each Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage blend pairs extremely well with the finest Scotch whisky, bourbon, rum, cognac, port, red wine, craft beer, or coffee. Beautifully presented in stunning 24-count boxes, these blends will be offered in the following four sizes: Robusto (5 x 56), Epicure (6 x 56), Churchill (7 x 56 , and Gordo Extra (6 1/2 x 60)...
“Our family has been truly blessed over the years with a loyal and dedicated staff both in Nicaragua and the United States. We are extremely grateful to the retailers and consumers who have supported us through the years and continue to share our enthusiasm and passion for our premium hand-made cigars. I’m extremely proud of this brand and we are very excited to share these special cigars,” states Nick Perdomo, Jr.>>
Like the 2014 release, Perdomo will release a limited production of only 240,000 cigars per wrapper, equaling only 2,500 total boxes per size.
