Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir

15 Feb









Wrapper: Cuban seed maduro from Nicaragua

Binder/Filler: Nicaraguan/Nicaraguan

Size: 4.7 x 56 Figurado

Age: unknown

Smoking Location- Ghetto Smoke Shack

Cut Method- Punch

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper was a rich and chocolate looking, not many signs of veins, and seemless. The wrapper had a sweet chocolate coffee smell and slightly nutty.  The pre-light draw was decent and filled my mouth with a slight spice and again tasting of coffee.  Cigar felt hard and tightly rolled, no give to it.

After the light:

Method- 3 flame torch

Lit nice and even, and not a hard draw like I was afraid it was going to give me.  Produced a hefty amount of smoke, slight spice and more of a woodsy taste than I would have expected after the pre light scents. However, after a bit the flavor went to a coffee and left a slight dryness in my mouth.  The coffee would be the prominent flavor until the last 3rd.  Where I then picked up more nutty/chocolate flavor for the rest of the stick.

It started out on the bottom half of a Medium bodied smoke and finished a strong Medium bodied cigar.

Ash length- 1.5 inches

Flavor- 6.5

Draw- 7.0

Construction- 6.5

Appearance- 8.0

Box Worthy?  Hell yes, this is a great stick and is one of my favorites.  I really enjoyed this size as well.
