There is no doubt that Nick Perdomo is one of the most innovative cigar makers and tobacco experts in the premium cigar industry today. He has created a huge portfolio of top-selling blends that encompass regular releases, Limited Edition Anniversary, and a host of specially crafted sticks that include the Bourbon Barrel Aged, Special Craft Series for beer connoisseurs, Factory Tour, and a host of other mouthwatering treats to enhance your enjoyment of this great hobby. Beyond his amazing crafting prowess and massive lineup of premium handmade cigars, Nick is one of a handful of manufacturers that are totally in tune with the economy as well as every smokers budget, therefore, in the extraordinary lineup of Perdomo cigars you will find several top-notch blends that also happen to be very affordable. His latest release, Perdomo Fresco, falls into this category.
Perdomo Fresco cigars, a value-based offering in the category of Nick’s Sticks, and Lot 23, are available in very popular sizes, and come with your choice of a golden brown or dark Maduro wrapper. The Fresco also happens to be one of the few Nicaraguan puros to boast a mellow to medium body profile. Sparing you the added cost of a fancy box, Perdomo Fresco cigars are packaged in 25-count bundles. However, don’t let this no-frills packing lull you into thinking this cigar is nothing more than a “mow the lawn” stogie, because Fresco is a premium cigar in every sense of the world. Handmade using quality Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos form Estelí, and a flavorful Jalapa binder; Perdomo Fresco surely doesn’t sacrifice quality for price.
Flavor wise, Perdomo Fresco is an easygoing smoke with more than enough character and complexity to satisfy both the newcomer and seasoned cigar aficionado alike. Thanks to a core of perfectly aged tobaccos, the light-colored sun-grown wrapped Fresco delivers a mellow to medium-bodied experience boasting smooth and creamy nuances of toast, spice, and cedar, while the Maduro, equipped with a dark, oily, supple leaf, brings some savory notes of espresso and chocolate to the (rolling) table.
By foregoing the elaborate packaging and expensive marketing strategies, Fresco delivers a fabulous luxury smoke that only tastes expensive!
