"Top shelf cigar"
Starts out a bit spicy, but changes to toasted wheat and almonds by the half way point. Then changes to deep rich espresso and carmelized nuts on the last third. Powerful cigar all the way through- recommended for the experienced cigar smoker. right on at $7 a stick. A solid 90 point cigar.

"Better than a Cuban MonteCristo #2 I had lately!"
I bought a pack of 5 of these off monster.com to try because I've had good luck with the lot 23s. The first 3 I tried were ok but not outstanding, but this last one... oh my! After 5 months in the humidor and with a manhattan on a cool evening on the back porch I'd rate this a 95! The cigar was absolutely perfect. I ashed once! That's right once! And I smoked it to the nub it was sooooo good. Maybe the 3 ounces of Bookers, 1 ounce of italian vermouth, 1 spoon of cherry juice helped but it was one of the best I've had in a while (and I've recently smoked some cuban Monte Cristo #2s). Would recommend this to anyone now and will save the last one of the bunch for a special occasion. Kudos to Perdomo for making such a great smoke.

"Everything a cigar should be"
I have yet to find a Perdomo that disappoints. In general, Maduro's are not my favorite, but oddly, a couple of the my top cigars are, including this one. This one has just the right amount of everything I imagine a cigar should. Great, complex taste, strong but not overpowering, nice aroma, slow burn, easy draw, nice construction. Two thumbs up on this one.

"Outstanding. Simply outstanding."
Tried a couple of singles from the local cigar shop and was impressed. Best cigar I've tried recently. Flawless construction, great burn, great taste. If you normally smoke mild to medium don't let the full flavor tag on this one scare you away. Full of flavor it is start to finish but never strong or overpowering.

"A great cigar!"
This was a fantastic cigar from start to finish. I bought a box at a recent Perdomo event at Famous Smoke Shop and was impressed with the quality, construction, and flavor of this cigar. It is my opinion that this cigar rivals the Silvio edition and it has become my favorite smoke. I disagree with the other review that states this cigar is overpriced. In my opinion it is worth every penny.
