Perdomo has become known for being one of a handful of companies who offer tours of its factory, welcoming consumer and retailers from all around the world to its facilities in Nicaragua. Now, they are bringing the Perdomo Factory Tour to retailers by way of a new line of cigars slated to debut at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
Like many of Perdomo’s recently announced lines, the Factory Tour will be available in three wrapper options, Sun Grown, Connecticut and Maduro, with four sizes in each blend: a 5 x 52 Robusto, 6 x 52 Toro, 6 1/2 x 54 Torpedo and 7 x 52 Churchill.
The Sun Grown version uses a wrapper from Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley over a binder from Nicaragua’s Condega Valley and fillers from the Estelí Valley of Nicaragua, while the Factory Tour Maduro keeps that blend but replaces the top leaf with a maduro wrapper, also from Jalapa.
For a milder offering, the Factory Tour Connecticut uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Jalapa Valley binder and filler from the Estelí Valley.
All of the options in the Perdomo Factory Tour line are being offered in 24-count bundles and boxes, with pricing expected to be between $6 and $7.50 per cigar, before taxes. The company is hoping that retailers will put the new line front and center in their humidors and is offering a display fixture as part of the line’s launch:
A shipping date for the new line has not been announced by the company.
