I got to meet Nick Perdomo last night.
My girlfriend and I heard there was a promotion on Perdomo cigars at a (very nice) local cigar shop, so I figured it was the perfect time to buy a box for my step-father as a Christmas gift. We walk into the shop and... what do you know? There stands Nick Perdomo himself. He was just finishing up a conversation with someone as we walked in the door and I immediately walked over to shake his hand.
I wish I could make this up, but along with his extremely nice suit, he had a very colorful polka-dot tie. I had a feeling he was going to have a great sense of humor and be open to conversation. He was very down-to-earth and stayed engaged in the topics we discussed, including our future move to Raleigh, NC. Turns out, he has a good friend in the area and suggested we meet up with him.
I wish I had more time to talk to him, but we had to get to dinner and RiffTrax (good stuff for those who have never seen it).
I did end up buying a box of Champagne Epicure for my step-father. Before I could walk out the door, Mr. Perdomo even offered to sign the box to wish my step-father a merry Christmas. Along with the box, I received a Perdomo cigar ashtray (it's damn good looking), a car license plate frame, and a free Perdomo Habano Connecticut cigar.
I hope I get the chance to meet up with him again. He seemed to be a genuinely great guy.

It's always cool to meet the people behind the cigars. He sounds like a cool guy.
The patel brothers are both very nice and down to earth more so Nish though or at least I think so. There is a shop that I go to locally that always has people there. This week the guys from alec bradley were in. The guys of E.P.C. are pretty regular also. I've always wanted to meet Jon Drew from Drew estate he seems like a cool guy.

Most definitely. I've never been disappointed with a Perdomo.
