Quick Smoke: Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage Maduro Robusto

26 Mar 2017

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

perdomo-12-maduro - 1

This limited offering from Perdomo features a dark Nicaraguan wrapper along with Nicaraguan filler comprised of Seco from Condega, Viso from Jalapa, and Ligero from Estelí (those details are helpfully written right on the band). The cigar is made with 10-year-old tobaccos, after which the finished cigar is aged for two more years in charred oak barrels. Pre-light, there is an inviting aroma full of rum and raisins. Once lit, the core flavors are dark, rich, and earthy with a very slight sweetness and black coffee notes. Classic maduro in taste; not at all harsh or spicy. Considering this cigar takes over a decade to produce, the $10 price tag is almost remarkably inexpensive.

Verdict = Buy.
