Spotlight Brand: Perdomo Grand Cru 2006 Maduro

Grand Cru Maduro

Maduro fans you've come to the right place.

When it comes to Perdomo, you can always expect superior quality. The Perdomo family has been greatly involved in the tobacco industry for at least three generations. With that in mind, they concentrate their quality control practices not only on the efforts of rolling each individual stick, but more so on growing quality tobacco. Each Perdomo cigar must maintain a consistent flavor from box to box, in addition to passing some of the highest quality control standards in the industry.

Perdomo's maduro version of the Grand Cru line follows the same suit as its two counterparts: a lush, Nicaraguan blend patiently fermented and aged to perfection. The maduro wrapper that clings to the healthy portion of fillers exceeds expectations of a premium maduro. The dark, rich, and oily wrapper will instantly get any maduro lover excited as notes of espresso and cashews engulf the palate. 

Q & A: Small Cigars?

Q.
What is so appealing about small cigars?

10/19/09 | by JA of Slidell, LA

A.
Many enthusiasts actually prefer small cigars. They provide ample flavor while still remaining a relatively quick enjoyment, especially in those situations where you cannot afford the time to enjoy a “standard” robust-sized cigar which could remain lit for up to 45 minutes. Most small cigars also come in tins, which presents an immediate advantage as the tins provide fantastic protection when traveling. Other enthusiasts prefer tins of small cigars to traditional boxes because the blends are usually less offensive to those who may not enjoy cigar smoke and the sticks only burn for about 20 minutes or less. Since small cigars usually maintain a ring gauge of 40 or less and are usually no longer than 4 inches in length, they produce little in terms of thick smoke and therefore are a great indulgence during the winter months or when you're not in the company of favorable cigar enthusiasts. These small sticks also come in many different flavors; traditional and non-traditional so there is a blend for everyone from those who enjoy sweet, fruity nuances to those who prefer a traditional full body. With the winter months closing in, now is the perfect time to pick up a tin or two of some small cigars to experience just how enjoyable these short beauties can be.
