Quick Smoke: Perdomo ESV 1991 Vintage Regente

3 Oct 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Perdomo ESV 1991 Vintage Regente

After resting in my humidor for over six months, the Vintage Regente (5 x 54) showed significant signs of improvement—performing better than my colleague reported in his May review. Its soft notes of coffee, wood, and leather seemed more harmonious. The finish, as a result, wasn’t as coarse or dry as I remembered. And since the cigar’s physical properties remain outstanding, it’s easier to justify this Connecticut shade-wrapped stick’s fairly steep price of $9-10 per single.

Verdict = Buy.

    I smoked one of these today. It was quite tasty. I noticed the first half of the cigar had a nutty flavor in the background. A very nice combo of flavors.

    Cigars International sells the 2nds of these for a good price and they're one of my go to sticks for medium bodied smoke. The 2nds look much lighter than the "regulars" though.
