Perdomo Releasing Double Aged Vintage Salomones


Perdomo will be releasing a new vitola in all three blends of its Double Aged Vintage line next month, as the company announced Tuesday morning that a limited edition Salomon vitola is due to hit store shelves in December.

The cigar measures 6 1/8 x 50/60 and will be available in all three of the line’s wrapper options, a Nicaraguan Sun Grown, Connecticut and Nicaraguan Maduro. Due to the limited run of 20,000 cigars per wrapper, the Salomon is being offered in smaller eight-count boxes with a single-stick MSRP of $12. The company says the cigars will be limited to 250 retailers worldwide.

Perdomo announced the Double Aged Vintage line in June 2014, about six weeks ahead of the 2014 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show where the company would formally unveil them. Four sizes–5 x 56 robusto, 6 x 56 epicure, 7 x 56 churchill and 6 1/2 x 60 gordo extra–were made in each wrapper version, for a total of 12 facings as part of the original release.

The line is said to use the “most cherished” 12 year old fillers, binders, and wrappers in the company’s stocks, which have been 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. Because of the scarcity of the tobacco, only 2,500 24-count boxes per size are being released, all of which have arrived at retail as of mid-November.

“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,” said Nick Perdomo, Jr. via a press release.

The entire Double Aged Vintage line is made at Tabacalera Perdomo in Estelí, Nicaragua.

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.
