MY WEEKEND CIGAR: Perdomo Cuban Parejo Cigar Review

By Gary Korb

A Pint-sized Cigar with a Big Batch of Flavor

It’s no secret that Perdomo makes some of my favorite Nicaraguan cigars, and since they were introduced in 2001, the Perdomo Cuban Parejo cigars have been one of the brand’s most enduring bestsellers. Maybe it’s because the blend has a flavor profile similar to that found in the better Cuban cigars? It could also be due to this particular cigar’s more bantam-sized dimensions and the Maduro wrapper.

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Size: 4¾” x 50
Strength: Full
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler & Binder: Nicaraguan

My Experience: Searching for something to smoke with my afternoon coffee, I came across this Perdomo Cuban Parejo Rothschild. It must’ve been aging in my humi for at least a few years, but since I didn’t have time for a longer cigar, I said, “Perfect.” Upon arriving at my destination, I ordered my coffee and proceeded to cut and light this attractive cigar with its dark, shimmering Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Right out of the gate the creamy smoke drew easily with a well-balanced mix of earth, toasted nuts, cedar and sweet spice flavors. As its even burn slowly worked its way down, the cigar took on more sweetness, as some Cuban-like floral notes entered the mix. Just past the halfway mark, notes of roasted coffee and dark chocolate entered the fray on a layer of sweet cedar and nutmeg.

Suffice it to say . . . although it’s full-bodied, this cigar’s strength isn’t as apparent as similar full-bodied Nicaraguans due to its smooth character, excellent balance, and sweet-spicy medley of flavors. Moreover, the Perdomo Cuban Parejo Rothschild Maduro would even be a safe bet for newer cigar smokers who are ready for a more robust smoking experience.
