My Weekend Cigar: Perdomo Patriarch Connecticut Robusto

Reading Time: < 1 minute

With a decent breeze blowing, I lit it carefully and the cigar took nicely. The first few puffs were mellow and aromatic. Having remembered the Corojo and Maduro pretty fondly, this was my first Patriarch with the Connecticut wrapper.

I paired the first half of the cigar with coffee. The smoke was medium-bodied, earthy and creamy with some toasted nut and sweet tobacco flavors in the mix. The cigar also burned well with one of the most stubborn light grey ashes I ever tried to tap-off.

I had to take about an hour break between halves to run some last-minute errands, but when I got back the cigar picked-up right where I left-off. It continued to smoke smoothly with no ill side-effects. This time, I smoked it while eating Honey Crisp apple slices. Now that’s nice.

As it moved through the last half the flavors intensified as nutmeg and other sweet spice flavors became more prominent, especially in the final third. All this time the balance never wavered, and when tapped, the ashes always left behind a perfect cone.

To summarize, the smoke was mostly earthy, sweet and creamy with some breadiness, plus flavors of nutmeg, and a note of toffee on the finish. For medium-bodied cigar with lots of rich, creamy flavor, I found the Perdomo Patriarch Connecticut Robusto hitting on all cylinders, and highly recommend it.
