Perdomo Begins Shipping Habano Bourbon Barrel-Aged Today


Perdomo Cigars is releasing its latest creation to retailers today, telling halfwheel that the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel-Aged is now shipping.

The new line, which comes in three wrapper versions and five sizes for a total of 15 facings, uses wrappers that have been aged for at least six years and high-priming Cuban-seed binders and fillers from Nicaragua.

The line is available with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper for a mild to medium body with a rich, creamy smoke and buttery smooth finish; a Sun Grown wrapper that delivers rich earthy flavors and subtle hints of spice; and a Maduro version which offers a medium-to-full body with rich, robust flavors of dark cocoa and roasted coffee.

Each capa gets several months of aging in bourbon barrels; the Connecticut gets six months while the Sun Grown gets 10 months and the Maduro gets 14 months.

For the fillers and binders, Perdomo is using four-year aged seco leaves from the Condega Valley, five-year aged viso leaves from the Jalapa Valley and six-year aged ligero leaves from the Estelí Valley. The result is a complex blend of aromatic tobaccos that deliver sweetness and bolder, fuller flavors in a balance of strength, taste and finish, according to the company.

The cigars are being released in five sizes, all of which come in 24-count boxes: Robusto (5 x 54), Epicure (6 x 54), Torpedo (6 1/2 x 54), Churchill (7 x 54) and Gordo (6 x 60). Single stick MSRPs will be between $7 and $8.50, before taxes, a price that Perdomo feels keeps the cigars in the market’s sweet spot.

The release of the Bourbon Barrel-Aged line continues a busy year of releases for Perdomo, as the company has also released the Perdomo Small Batch Series, Perdomo Special Craft Series and Perdomo Factory Tour.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
