Perdomo Champagne Figurado
Perdomo Reserve has formulated its 10th year anniversary rendition over the past 10 years. The cigars were produced to observe the next generation of Tabacalera Perdomo's award winning and exceptionally acclaimed original La Tradicion Perdomo Reserve line. Create with alluring CT Wrappers.
I really love this cigar, a great, high quality smoke at a fair price; however, as the title says, I have had problems with the wrappers cracking on more than 1 cigar. They could simply be a high maintenance cigar. So you may need to plan on an extended stay in your humi to get the best result.
Dark-roast coffee, cacao, mild spicy chives, fresh alpine grass, wildflowers, slight stone-fruit sweetness; mild occasional notes of fresh hay, barnyard, toast, anise/licorice, musty dry-attic air. Highs: beautiful wrapper; classy, superb shape and construction; perfect draw; consistent, rewarding, complex flavor profile. Lows: insufficient care yields unbalanced heat/bitterness; lacks body and intensity in home-stretch. Complimentary pairings: cognac, non-port/sherry dessert and white wines, black or herbal/rooibos tea, bright/acidic light-to-medium roast coffee. Contrasting pairings: Highland single-malts, rum, hazelnut liqueur splash in vodka, dark-roasted coffee. Conclusion: smooth, delicate, multifaceted flavor rewards the patient and attentive but quickly penalizes a nervous and distracted smoker with surging one-dimensional bitterness. Some may wish for a slightly fuller-bodied cigar.
For those who like a milder cigar, you can't do better. This is a beautiful cigar to look at, draws and burns perfectly and has loads of complex flavor right down to the nub. The CT wrappers are a bit delicate, but I think that is the price you pay for this kind of flavor.
An outstanding cigar with an amazing easy draw, nice full ash and a great burn. Not a strong cigar but still has a great nutty flavor with a silk creamy smooth smoke. The only thing I can complain is the same as previous reviews, the wrapper unravel about 3/4 through. I was able to smoke it down to the nub but, the wrapper seems to be a bit delicate. I have to say that this is now one of my favorites.
