I was paging thru my Famous catalog and the band cought my eye. The burn was perfect, consistancy was good on a 5 pk the draw is very good I like the dark oily madura cigars and the Perdomo did not disappoint me. The taste was sweet and smooth hard to believe this was a full body cigar. The construction was seemless with that nice oily madura wrap. What really impressed me is I was out surf fishing in 20 mph winds and this cigar held up to the force of nature. I will buy them again. It will be interesting to see how the other 5 turn out after a couple of weeks in the humidore

"Very Nice Smoke..."
This smoke was recommended by my local smoke shop and I have to say, I thought as a "maduro" it would have been stronger, but I wasn't disappointed. The overall flavor made up for the mildness. It started out and stayed a bit sweet but not too sweet. The aroma was excellent and the burn was just as good. I would recommend this cigar to anyone as a morning starter with their coffee.

If you love maduro cigars don't waste your money on this one. Maduro lovers are about flavor...this stick has NONE!!!
BLAND sums it up...no flavor, no body no nothing.
I tried a few just to make sure it wasn't just one stick...all of them were duds. I smoked 4 out of the 5 pack I bought...the 5th one is going in the garbage can!

This is one of the tastiest and consistent cigars I have smoked. The draw is even with a nice white ash. You can't beat the flavor period.

"Very Nice One of Perdomo's Best"
Just finished one of these from Jamuary '09 selection of the month. I have to say outstanding. I really enjoyed the Lot 23 maduro, but in my opinion for the small price difference I will buy the Habano maduro. Very complex beginning with the typical sweet cocoa flavors in the first third, moving to a nice not overwhelming spiciness in the second third, and finishing with sweet cocoa in the forefront with a light spiciness in the background making a nice mixture of flavor in the last third. Great construction and an ash that stays on so solidly that it is hard to even flick off. Simply beautiful cigar. Everyone should try these they will not be disappointed. 5 star highly recommended.

"Less than satisfied"
This is a beautiful cigar to look at. Mine had some serious burn issues; to the point of frustrating. No doubt the burn issues had a less than desirable effect on the taste. I am a fan of Perdomo cigars, but this one was less than impressive. I will get another five pack, but a box is out of the question for the time being.

"Novice but active smoker."
This is my favorite cigar at the moment. I became enamored with the Perdomo line after tasting the Lot 23 during my early sampling faze. This cigar is bold but not overpowering and is a great relaxer. I would recommend the Maduro to anyone looking for a bold option that will give you a nice buzz but won't make you naucious or over power your drink.
