    Perdomo Edición de Silvio no. 2 Torpedo
    For those who appreciate a little spice in their lives, the Edición de Silvio from Tabacalera Perdomo is not to be missed. Fermenting the Cuban-seed leaves in Spanish cedar and vintage oak casks creates the tangy, peppery flavor. Only 25,000 cigars, divided among three shapes, will be produced; we suggest the No. 2 Torpedo (61¼8 x 54). The cigars honor the late Silvio Perdomo, the cofounder of the family’s tobacco business and the grandfather of Nick Perdomo Jr., the company’s current president. ($25) www.perdomocigars.net
