“Perdomo 10th Anniversary Connecticut Ltd. Reserve” Robusto
This slightly oily cigar had a light tan color and no visible tooth with nearly invisible veins. The pre lit aroma consisted of wood and sweet tobacco notes. The ash was dark Grey and the burn was slightly wobbly at times, but never needed any attention. The draw was on the loose side and provided good amounts of oily mild smoke. The first third produced flavors of sweet tobacco and faint vanilla notes on the draw with wood and pepper spice on the finish. The second third continued with tobacco on the draw however the sweetness was vanishing. The pepper really dominated the finish until reaching the halfway point. At the half way point, a new creamy and slightly sweet coffee was now present on the draw. The pepper spice dramatically lessened and was now only noticeable when mixing with wood notes on the finish. I did not notice any further transitions but I have to say that this cigar really impressed me! It had flawless construction with great flavors! I will be keeping an eye out for a few boxes to pick up! As always, Stay Toasting!
