Spotlight Brand: Perdomo 2 Limited Edition

Perdomo Squared

Perdomo's cult classic is back!

Re-released with a new and improved blend, Perdomo2 is better than ever. Utilizing filler tobaccos all from Nicaragua’s top growing regions, this cigar is smooth but filled with a ton of complex flavors.

Tabacalera Perdomo is one of the top ten manufacturers in the business. In fact, when the original Perdomo2 was released, box-pressed cigars were far from popular.  Enthusiasts were enjoying subtle, mellow blends that were “in the round” and mostly utilized Connecticut wrappers. Although Perdomo2 was an incredible blend, Tabacalera Perdomo eventually had to pull the cigar from production, to focus more on their flagship line—Perdomo Reserve.

Perdomo2 is a limited-edition, box-pressed cigar available in two beautiful wrappers: an oily sun-grown maduro and a sleek, seamless Habano leaf. The blend consists of all Nicaraguan tobaccos that were blended to create a perfect balance throughout the entire length of the cigar. Medium to full-bodied, Perdomo2 offers notes of cocoa mixed with coffee-like nuances, which are then masked by an underlying spicy sweetness that coats the palate for an incredible finish. Due to its box-pressed shape, this cigar burns slowly, offering rich flavors and a smooth, unique complexity only experienced when enjoying a Perdomo blend.

Q & A: Removing Cigar Bands?

Q.
Should I remove my cigar band before enjoying my cigar?

12/15/08 | by BS of Casper, WY

A.
This question has been debated for years. Some individuals believe cigar bands were implemented as a way of holding a cigar to prevent tobacco stains on fingers or gloves. Others believe they were simply attached to prevent counterfeiting. Regardless, at some point the band needs to be removed but when is the right time to do so? Cigar bands are held together by pectin, which is flavorless vegetable glue. This glue will soften as heat passes through the cigar. Therefore, the best time to remove the band is after two or three inches have been burned. Some enthusiasts prefer to remove the band before the initial light, but this may damage the wrapper since the glue will still be completely in tact.
