After the good reviews above, I bought a 5 pack. They look beautiful in their golden cellophane, and smell great prior to light up. Then, a very mediocore smoke. In fact a bit harsh and bitter. The looks, burn, et all were great, but a real let down in the flavor department - like a drug store cigar. Won't be buying these again. Maybe I got a bad one?
Best cigar to come out for MANY years
Very solid cigar. Pricey, worth every penny but best if you can get on an auction. Good mild cigar with a nice consistent burn and good construction. This has been moved into my humidor as a staple.
Great draw, amazing taste, good look and smell, overall the perfect cigar. I've tried several cigars but none were as enjoyable. The only part I didn't like was that about an inch and a half away from the cap it ended. I found the cigar for me. I'm a beginner but if you don't believe me just read what everyone else has written.
these are the greatest cigars i have ever smoked soooo creamy and with body
This is a generous cigar in every way. It is mild, well made, claro, almost candela wrapper with a rich creamy, full smoke. Perfect draw, perfect construction, slightly loose at the foot and steadily thicker. The wrapper has little aroma before being lit but a wonderful, heady aroma vaguely reminiscent of a café latté with faint overtones of sandalwood, when burning. It complements a rich, mild filler, with no harshness, which builds steadily until there is a solid nicotine buzz for the last three inches. There is a faint bite at the back of the throat at first, not unpleasant. Through the middle third of the cigar, the light wrapper asserts itself, adding a slight, complex fruity note. The finish is smooth with an aftertaste which matches a Bailey's Cream or a flan; no sweetness per se, but a perfect morning cigar, rather than a heavy hit, despite the thick full smoke. This cigar is worth sitting next to as well as smoking!
Okay, I'm back after smoking another one of these, and am standing by original comments! The burn and draw are fine, but the flavor is just plain harsh! Not strong, but harsh. I was paying careful attention and not just casually smoking and here's what I noticed; the cigar looks and smells great prior to lighting, well constructed from the outside, after cutting I noticed some green tobacco pieces and the more I looked at it from the outside it seemed that there were some spots of a different color to be seen through the wrapper - are they putting uncured filler in these!!!???, after lighting not truly terrible, but pretty darn bad especially considering all the talk about the "carefully selected 5 year old Conn. wrapper" - basically tastes like smoking hay. After about 1/2 way through a big/long stick (C), I gave up and lit up a Graycliff (I know, not in the same price range) and holly crap, the difference was like night and day! Perdomo reserve champagne's are Very, Very Average! I WILL NOT buy these again, and to steal from others reviews "why do people like these?" Many, many other cigars in this price range that are so, so much better - Torano, Hoyo, Upmann, R&J etc. Anybody want my remaining 3 before I pawn them off on somebody?
no matter what your taste perdomo cigars stand alone great flavor great aroma great taste. Try some today.
There is never a wrong time for a Perdomo.
This cigar is amazing. I would highly recommend this cigar to any one who wants a mild cigar with really nice flavor. Everything about the cigar is just about perfect. I know that I will be buying these again and again.
You first look at this cigar and you're thinking, "Is this going to have any taste?" If you are thinking this, you're going to get fooled. Remember, the binder & filler are both from Nicaragua. And the Conneticut wrapper is aged to perfection. The result -- a medium body flavor bomb! Nuts, creamy gourmet coffee undertones, and hints of cinnamon and caramel take over your palate. And a nice long, light pleasant finish is noted throughout this wonderful cigar. It's often overlooked. For all you dedicated cigar connoisseurs out there, don't let the very light color of this cigar turn you away.
