Perdomo Champagne 10th Anniversary Epicure Cigar Review

Perdomo is a story of the American dream. During the Cuban revolution, Silvio Perdomo was arrested as an enemy of Fidel Castro and he would spend 15 years in jail before escaping to the United States. Meanwhile Nick Perdomo Sr. would fight against the guerrillas and would suffer multiple gunshot wounds. He would later escape to the United States as well, where his son would serve as an air traffic controller in the Navy before launching Nicks Sticks out of his garage in 1992.  10 Years later the company would launch the Perdomo Champagne to celebrate their 10th Anniversary and it is today’s review on The Cigar Authority.

Cigar Review: Perdomo Champagne
Wrapper: Connecticut
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Length: 6″
Ring Gauge: 54
Size: Epicure

The Look: Packaged in 25 count boxes, the Perdomo Champagne stands out on the shelves with its yellow hue cello. Inside the cello sits the Perdomo Reserve Champagne 10th Anniversary. The Connecticut wrapper has an abundance of oils present with a few thin veins and a subtle tooth to it as well. In the hand the cigar is firm with a slight sponginess to the foot of the cigar that is well packed and uniform in color.

The Notes:  The cold draw of the Champagne serves up some sweet molasses along with a buttery richness reminiscent of pound cake with the foot of the cigar serving up a similar yet muted experience with a touch of pepper that brings me to the edge of a sneeze.

Once the cigar is lit the sweetness continues from the first light with notes of molasses and nuts and the slightest hint of spice. As the cigar progresses there is a hint of butterscotch while the finish of the cigar reveals an earthy component.

In the second third of the Perdomo Champagne the cigar begins to take on notes of roasted nuts with some earthy components and the development of licorice that is quite defined on the finish.

The last third of the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne returns to the sweetness experienced on the initial light and the cold draw with a slight caramel and continued notes of roasted nuts that are especially dominant in the aroma and retrohale.

The Finish: Perdomo has come a long way since they began selling cigars from their garage, but they did it through hard work, blood, sweat and tears. The brand is rightfully one of the core lines in the industry that everyone has smoked and continues to smoke. Year after year the company puts out cigars that are consistent and deserving of your hard-earned money. It offers the right mixture of spice and sweetness and that is what brings us back time and time again.
