"Excellent cigar at an excellent price"
Better than any Perdomo I have smoked (not a criticism). This is a beautiful 30 -40 minute smoke; well-made, beautiful draw, medium to full-bodied. The 5 pack deal is a great introduction. Highly recommended!!

One of the best. Love both the criollo and the maduro. Georgeous, rich, aromatic and to me a perfect draw; no hernia or air balls.

"Great Smoke - To Short"
I took a chance when shopping for 5paks for the price of 3 and this one caught my eye. I really enjoyed the taste and a good even burn. Next time I will buy the Churchill so I can enjoy it longer....this one made the list for me.

Was pleasently suprised by this one. It is well constructed, burns evenly and has a fine ash. Although rated as a full strength cigar, it was more like a medium to me. Flavor is solid and remains uniform throughout the entire smoke--does not become strong or bitter as you near the end. I'd buy these again. If you like Criollos, try a five pack of these.

"Surprisingly creamy robusto"
I received a 5-pack sampler of Perdomo as a promotion when I bought my usual supply of Avo' robusto's. I usually save the freebies to give to casual smoker friends or when I run out. I was pleasantly surprised by the Perdomo Criollo 10th Anniversary. Very creamy smoke, well constructed, great flavor, and impeccable burn. It is a bit stronger than my Avo's, but totally enjoyable. Still not an inexpensive cigar, but definitely worth it. I'm going to buy a box and let them age in my humidor....they should pack a punch in a few months!

"Mmm surprisingly good"
I bought these from the auction and wish I would have bought more. It says spicy in the other reviews, I usually use the reviews as a standard before I buy although many tastes are different. When I see spicy in a review, I think peppery and I don't like peppery...these are not peppery at all. These are smooth and tastey. These have a great flavor, burn well, well constructed and I would recommend them. I plan to get more.
There was tunneling near the end but this was my first so I will have to try the others to test it! ;)

"Fantastic spice and caramel"
Right off the bat this cigar hits your taste buds with heavy red pepper! But a few 1/8ths of an inch later it mellows, never losing the spice completely, but like a great chili it hits you up front the first few spoonfuls then it tones down and there is just good tingly spice. I noticed the further along I smoked the more creamy and caramel flavored it became. And as I approached the last inch and a half it picked up its earlier spicy notes and gave a full report of itself. Definitely a full bodied cigar. You can tell just by the lump you feel in the throat. Will definitely be buying again!

"best tasting criollo to hit the market yet!"
I work at a local cigar shop, here in town, we just had a perdomo event and walt, the rep handed me a rubusto 10 aniv. criollo, i really like criollo, the cao, the illisiones 888, but i have to tell you. this cigar taste wounderfull, very smooth, very tasty on the palate. there is a definate spicyness to it, not strong, it doesnt leave the sinus burning, nor does it leave the tingling sensation on the back of the throat. just enough spice to be complex and keep you attention throughout the smoke, and of course that black liccorice criollo taste. this is a great smoke. if you like criollo do yourself a favor and try these. you WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!!!!!
