Whenever a new Perdomo line is released there’s reason for excitement. One can be sure of impeccably crafted cigars that taste great and the 10th Anniversary line—released early this year—is a testament to that. There are three different blends: the Maduro, Champagne (Connecticut) and our panelists favorite which we’re shipping this month, the Criollo. The cigar utilizes an all-Nicaraguan blend of aged fillers and boasts a beautiful Cuban-seed Criollo wrapper. Trust this dark tan wrapper with its oily, toothy, even texture is going to taste as good as it looks! The pre-light aroma of cedar and pepper is another broad hint—this stogie is chock-full of amazing flavor. From start to finish, the 10th Anniversary Criollo is a remarkably smooth smoke. You’re going to love the pure tobacco taste and a hearty rich aroma. Look for the strength to build as you enjoy very subtle hints of mocha, cedar, spice and more notable hints of coffee and roasted nuts. Panelists lauded its consistency and liked the fact that the Perdomo 10th Criollo isn’t overdone. As one member said, “This stick has great flavor but it’s not over the top. It could have been richer or stronger or spicier, but it stays the course. It demonstrates a really organic, natural tobacco taste that is sometimes lost or overpowered in many of today’s other premium blends.” Pair it with an oak-heavy XO cognac.
