12 years is a long time in this age of instant gratification. But don’t tell that to Nick Perdomo. Introducing the Double Aged 12 Year Vintage. This new blend release will be available in three wrapper blends, a Connecticut Shade, a Sun Grown, and a Maduro version with Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars are made using tobaccos from a 2001 / 2002 crop, and then aged using a two-part process. First, the leaf is bale-aged for ten years, and then it is fermented in oak bourbon barrels for another two years. The faint bourbon remnants that remained in the barrel result in a taste that is exceedingly flavorful. The Perdomo Double Aged Sun Grown has a gorgeous chestnut brown wrapper that cloaks Nicaraguan long-fillers grown on the rich volcanic soil found on the Perdomo farm. This sun grown beauty offers notes of almond, leather and wood with a sweet spicy core that continues to build in flavor with layer upon layer of complexity .The cigar finishes with subtle hints of bourbon that have imbued the leaf during the aging process.
