Cigar Review: Perdomo Grand Cru 2006 Grand Robusto Sun Grown

Draw: Excellent

Pre-light flavor: Woody.

Toasting & Light: Cigar toasted and lit well. First puff was thick, creamy and oaky.

Base flavors: Oak and sweet tobacco

Retrohale: Medium peppery with a hard to describe creamy flavor with an element that might be described as a more intense oakiness.

Aroma: Sweet.

Burn / Ash Quality: Extraordinary. Like the GC2006 Connecticut, very firm with plenty of staying power.

Balance of flavors: Excellent. Creamy, oaky and sweet tobacco flavors all presented  themselves evenly.

Consistency: Excellent. Flavors, burn, balance, body and aroma hardly varied at all.

General Observations: As the cigar worked its way past the first inch, the smoke was medium in body and quite sweet with a rich oaky flavor. The ash dropped off after the first two inches. The flavors had all settled in nicely, and I thought I picked up a note of hickory. I also liked the sweetness when pressing my tongue against the tobacco.

Summary: Like the Connecticut, the 2006 Sun Grown was equally impressive and I nubbed it. What I enjoyed most about this cigar was the smoky, oaky flavors and sweetness on the palate. I can’t say I liked it better than the Connecticut, because there is a noticeable difference in the flavors, obviously supplied by the difference in the wrappers. So far, this line has been a great way to show what a difference a wrapper makes. Next stop: The Perdomo Grand Cru 2006 Grand Robusto Maduro. Stay tuned!
