News has been coming thick and fast from Central America on reports that the entire cuban harvest has been completley wiped out by the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. This from Don Collins: For the fifth time in 10 years the Areas of Santiago de Cuba, Bayamo, Las tuknas, Marti, Camaguey, Santa Claor, Pedro Betarcourt [...]
Information has been trickling through about the re-release of the Perdomo Grand Cru. The 2004 crop was released 2 years ago and sold like hot cakes! However, with the depletion of the 2004 tobacco and Nick Perdomo (in his wisdom) wanting to keep the brand, but improve the blend, has re-made the cigar with the [...]
Well, there has been a lot of secrecy around this new stick. Nick Perdomo has had it under wraps for quite sometime now and the release is imminent. When I was at the Perdomo Cigars HQ in Miami earlier this year, I was afforded a special “sneak Peak” at the packaging of the new line, [...]
The time has come once again. We are starting to prepare for the annual trek to Nicaragua to visit the home of some of the best Cigars in the World, the Perdomo Cigar Factory in Esteli Nicaragua. I am just in talks now with Perdomo HQ in Miami to finalise the dates for our Australian group to [...]
Well, we’ve all heard the rantings of the Australian government and it’s ministers regarding the health costs borne by the Australian people when it comes to smokers. But how truthful are they being? We have read and referred to reports from various countries including the USA, Holland and others in the past all confirming what [...]
Earlier this year, when I was at Perdomo HQ in miami, the team advised that the Perdomo Grand Cru was going through a “face lift”. Although it was already a great stick and loved by many cigar aficionados, Nick thought he could make it even better. So, what’s changed? – The blend is going through [...]
There aren’t too many times in your life when you are made to feel very special, this weekend, I had a one!. I was celebrating my upcoming birthday with a few friends (there may have been a few Perdomo Cigars being enjoyed at the same time) and I was having a great day chatting and [...]
Here at the Perdomo Lounge we are often asked “what makes a good cigar”? Many customers who come here the first time have only smoked second-rate cigars in the past and when they try their first Perdomo, they are impressed at the difference. So what makes the best cigars better than the rest? Of course, [...]
Sam Spurr has put up his first blog post about his recent trip to Perdomo’s factory in Nicaragua! Read it here! Thanks Sam!
Peter from “A Cigar Smoker’s Journal” has written a very positive review of the Perdomo Exhibición Sun Grown. Here are some highlights: “The band for this cigar is simply beautiful….” “The cold draw tastes of butter, hay, earthy, and a slight bitterness….” “Between draws I’m left with a creamy flavor on the palate mixed with [...]
We had eight players – but only one winner! Thanks to everyone who came! Hope to see new faces for our next event!
I just read this interesting article from 2009 about the anti-smoking lobby. It’s worth a read if you want a different perspective on where all of the anti-smoking hysteria is coming from. The article references the book “Hyping Health Risks: Environmental Hazards in Daily Life and the Science of Epidemiology” by epidemiologist Geoffrey C. Kabat which [...]
A big thanks to Mark from Aussie Cigars who posted this review of the Perdomo Habano Maduro!
It’s been crazy busy here over the last month, so I haven’t had a chance to post many customer pics – but it’s raining cats & dogs in Brissy today, which makes me feel like blogging. Here are some Perdomo customer pics from the last month or so! Jarret Furey @Jarret_F: @PerdomoCigars It’s a Perdomo night [...]

Well it’s been another busy month at Perdomo Cigars Australasia and we’ve seen lots of great photos popping up on the web from Perdomo fans all over the world. Here’s a few that caught our interest! This one from @coreywilson76 in Brisbane, Australia. I hope his cart stayed the right side up this time! At Perdomo Cigars [...]
Jon at The Aspiring Gentleman has written a very complimentary review of the Perdomo Champagne Noir. He starts off by complimenting the appearance: “The cigar is wrapped in a dark, almost black, maduro leaf. The wrapper is so dark that I can barely see the small veins in the leaf. There’s an oily sheen that’s [...]
A great new review of the Perdomo Habano Gordo: The cigar is wonderful to look at, a light sheen lets it almost glow. This Nicaraguan puro is well constructed, firm in the hand with a great cedar-y smell in the pre-light. I paired it with an 11 year old Balblair Highland single malt that my [...]
Thanks for everyone who came along to our Cigar Appreciation Evening last Friday! Hopefully you all know a LOT more about how Perdomo makes their cigars as a result! For those of you who couldn’t be there, we watched snippets from the Perdomo Factory Tour Uncut DVD. The full DVD is four hours long and [...]
I wanted to test out my new iPhone 4S yesterday, so I smashed out a quick video about our store and cigar lounge.
Check out some of the latest Perdomo Cigars pics from customers around the world! It’s great to see so many people around the world enjoying their Perdomo Cigars! Here’s a few snippets we’ve seen from around the web lately!
I’ve really become a fan of pairing the ESV Sun Grown with a peaty single malt…. a Laphroaig or a Caol Ila or a Talisker. It really seems to compliment them quite well. Order yours today!
The nice folks at The Cigar Report have excellent things to say about the Perdomo Lot 23 Toro Maduro: I believe Nick Perdomo has outdone himself with the Lot 23. The tobacco in this stick is specially grown in Nicaragua on a field called Lot 23…thus the name. This field was cultivated in 2000 and [...]
