Coming off of a great IPCPR 2013, Perdomo has released the Sun Grown wrapper version of its highly successful Champagne 20th Anniversary line. I visited my local B&M Fox Cigar Bar to pick up the new stick. It has a nice light sweet smell with a bit of mustiness mixed in and looks medium-dark with barely visible veins. The cold draw was nice and light with a bit of sweetness as well, along with some saltiness. The band is the same as the original champagne cigar but with darker colors and “Sun Grown” on the bottom of the band.

First puffs– Starting out there is a nice spice that doesn’t over power. Very earthy flavor to it. I am picking up some salty flavors as well. The draw is great and smoke production is great.
First third– Super smooth so far. The spices have mellowed out and are starting to settle. There are some coffee notes coming in nicely. The wrapper is giving a nice earth flavor still that tastes great. The smoke production is fantastic.
Second third– Still smoking very well. The coffee and spices are mixing so nicely. The earth flavors are in the front though, giving it a nice taste. The cigar has become a bit stronger in the middle, a bit less creamy taste. Still drawing fantastic though.

Final third– Really tasty so far. The spice has become more prominent but still not overpowering. Finishing up it is still smoking like a champ and remains creamy and smooth.

Overall a really nice smoke. The flavors mixed perfectly throughout, just a little hiccup in the middle, but nothing to bad. Construction was top notch and it smoked so well, really easy to enjoy. I highly suggest picking one of these up, you will not be disappointed.

Perdomo Lot 23

Brand: Perdomo

Wrapper: Connecticut

Filler: Nicaraguan

Strength: Medium

Size: Robusto 5.0 x 50

Price: $5.00

 

This was my first Perdomo and from what I have read this is a super solid cigar with a fantastic price point. So far, price point is awesome. So I picked one up to smoke. The wrapper is a really nice oily light brown. With visible leaf lines and it has some black specs throughout. The smell is very sweet with a citrus scent mixed in. The band is a bit clunky, but I get it, kinda has a tropic feel to it. Brand name, edition, and Esteli Nicaragua at the bottom. The cold draw is sweet with a taste of saltiness and coffee.

First puffs– There is a bit of spice that jumps at you right away. Under that it has a dull citrus mixed with earth. The draw is really great, leaving behind an awesome light gray ash.
First third– The earth flavors really dominate along with some wood and coffee. There is a bit of spice left after each draw that rests on my palette. Draw is loose and chugging along nicely.

Second third– The coffee has stepped up and is really nice. Earth and spice are still mixed in. The flavors are bit barbaric, almost fighting each other. The draw is still great and construction is superb.
Final third– Luckily the flavors have settled down and are playing nicely now. Coffee and earth flavors are at the front. There is still a little kick of spice every few puffs.

Overall a pretty solid cigar with some nice flavors. I wasn’t overpowered with spice which is nice. The coffee was prevalent through the entire cigar pretty much. The construction was pretty much flawless, producing a fantastic solid ash the whole way through. This is a try since the price was so good, which may cause it to become a regular since its so cheap and reliable, an ol stand by.
