MY WEEKEND CIGAR: Olor Nicaragua by Perdomo Cigar Review

By Gary Korb

 

Could This Be Your New Morning Cigar?

It takes a great blending know-how to expand on a brand that’s already a bestseller, and the Olor Nicaragua by Perdomo selection is a terrific example. Handcrafted in three wrapper choices with an all-Nicaraguan long-filler core, my weekend cigar was the Toro “Natural,” rolled in the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, which made an impressively satisfying “morning smoke.”

 

OLOR NICARAGUA BY PERDOMO TORO CONNECTICUT

This richer-tasting Olor Nicaragua selection comes from marrying Tabacalera Perdomo’s prime Nicaraguan tobaccos with a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper. G-~

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Size: 6″ x 50
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Filler & Binder: Nicaraguan

My Experience: Saturday morning. I woke up earlier than usual and it looked like a nice day outside. Even the temperature was cooperating. I headed downstairs, brewed the coffee, downed a bowl of cereal, then walked over to my humidors where I began fishing for a good morning smoke. I plucked out an Olor Nicaragua Natural Toro, made by Perdomo. Next stop, the garage – my makeshift man cave – where I proceeded to light-up and listen to some tunes.

As I settled into my makeshift recliner (a ratty beach chair) and began to ponder my weekend agenda, the cigar issued well-balanced flavors of earth, sweet cedar and roasted nuts. The hot coffee rounded it out nicely while keeping me comfortable on my virtual island, which was several degrees cooler than the air just a few feet away. As the medium-bodied smoke inched closer to its inevitable conclusion, notes of coffee bean and cocoa were revealed in the latter stages for a very satisfying start to the day.

Suffice it to say . . . the Dominican-made Olor line has been a perennial bestseller, but this Nicaragua edition gives the line a whole new personality, and a very rich-tasting one at that. For the cigar smoker who wants more ZING from their morning cigar, this one’s worth reaching for – and for fans of Perdomo cigars, like Yours Truly, it’s a no brainer.
