Perdomo Ships First Installment of Small Batch Series


Perdomo Cigars has shipped the first of three installments in its new Small Batch Series to retailers.

The collection uses tobaccos that have been aged for 10 years and will come in three wrapper variations released in consecutive months, with a Nicaraguan binder and filler used on all three versions. The debut release features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that the company says offers “a rich smoke with a creamy complexity, slight hints of caramel and cedar, with a smooth, elegant finish.”


The second release, which is due in April, will use a Nicaraguan sun grown wrapper to give “a spicy-sweet complexity, slight hints of oak and almond, with a rich, satisfying finish.” The series will be completed in May with the release of a Nicaraguan Maduro wrapped version that is “smooth with a natural sweet complexity, hints of dark cocoa and coffee, with a rich, robust finish.”

All the wrappers have been aged in bourbon barrels, according to a press release issued by the company.

Each of the releases will come in four sizes with identical pricing, a 4 x 46 half corona (MSRP $4.99), 4 1/2 x 50 Rothschild ($5.99), 5 x 54 belicoso ($6.50) and 5 1/2 x 54 toro especial ($6.99). Each size comes in 30-count boxes, with an annual production of 3,000 boxes per size in each wrapper being released, and only to a select group of retailers around the world.

The cigars are made at Tabacalera Perdomo in Estelí, Nicaragua.

News of the Perdomo Small Batch Series first surfaced in mid-February when the company informed retailers of a handful of price increases as well as two other new lines set to be released this year, Perdomo Special Craft Series, and Perdomo Factory Tour Blend.

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.
