Perdomo Cigars & Craft Beer
Perdomo Cigars & Craft Beer go together like toast and jam. Let’s find out why…
The craft beer phenomenon has taken this country by storm, and it shows no sign of letting up. I would definitely not consider this a fad of any sort. I’m a life long Yuengling fan, yet many of these special brews are simply outstanding. When you consider the craftsmanship and creativity that goes into making these blends, its shocking that the brewers’ are still able to create new, interesting, and delicious new styles. Now, put the bottle down, sit back and think for a moment. What other premium product takes time, craftsmanship and creativity to make a great blend? Yes, a cigar is the answer. Or “what is a cigar?” if you’re on Jeopardy.
Premium cigars and craft beers both share several similar characteristics especially in the blending process. The best part is that they are both meant for pure enjoyment. Wouldn’t it make sense of a cigar manufacturer created a line that would pair well with such a similar and popular item? Nick Perdomo thought and created the special Perdomo Craft Series. This is a line of cigars created with the sole purpose of enjoying them with a fine brew. Could you enjoy them by themselves? Of course you can, but where is the fun in that. So lets take a look at the three different lines the great Nick Perdomo has created.
The first line is known as the Pilsner and it of course it’s meant to be paired with, well a pilsner. In fact any light beer will do. This mild cigar is crafted with an exquisite Connecticut wrapper. The filler and binder are rolled with aged, aromatic Nicaraguan tobacco from the Condega valley. This cigar is light and crispy, with a hint of a creamy taste to it. It’s a perfect pairing for any white ale or light pilsner.
Next on tap, we have the Craft Series Amber. Now is the time for your pale ales and that seasonal favorite Oktoberfest. The amber series is the perfect partner in crime to these bold, flavorful beers. It uses a Cuban seed, Nicaraguan Sun grown wrapper. It’s a spicy, savory, and flavorful. This is the perfect time of the year to enjoy one of these smokes with a great IPA.
Lastly, we have the dark and hearty stout. This cigar is rich and full, with a lot of dark undertones. It’s wrapped with a luscious, Nicaraguan maduro wrapper and features rich flavors with tastes of dark cocoa and chocolate. It has a slightly creamy note on the back end. This is a great cigar to light up with a heavy stout or a brown ale. I’m a fan of enjoying a nice Imperial stout myself. The combination of rich and dark combined for a flavor powerhouse.
