Perdomo cigars are all wonderful creations of the famed Nick Perdomo. Perdomo cigars are handmade in Nicaragua with the highest quality tobacco. Utilizing strict quality control measures, Perdomo cigars strive to always deliver a great consistant smoke, time and time again.
Perdomo itself got its start as a cigar company in the 1900's in San Jose de las Lajas, Cuba, an agricultural city about 27 kilometers southeast of Havana. Silvio Perdomo was raised there and spent time at a number of other cigar makers before Perdomo found himself arrested for his opposition to the regime of Fidel Castro. Silvio Perdomo was tortured and kept nearly starving at a number of Cuban prisons for 12 years.
Nick Perdomo, Senior - Silvio's son - also butted heads with Fidel Castro and his concept of a socialist or "new Cuba". Nick Perdomo, Sr. was actually shot and critically wounded by pro-Castro guerillas.
Thanks to a sponsorship arranged through the Catholic Church, Nick moved to Washington, D.C. and made a life of his own with a now famous cigar brand.
"I thank God for coming to America. It has given my family the precious opportunities of freedom they never would have had in Cuba.” Nick, Sr. now points at a large American flag he has on the wall of his office, “When I raised my right hand before this beautiful flag it was one of the proudest moments of my life. Even though I’m proud of my Cuban heritage, I bleed American red, white and blue.”
Today, you can own a piece of that Cuban history with every stick Perdomo's company rolls. Check out the in-stock line-up of Perdomo cigars for sale below:
