Perdomo Patriarch Corojo Churchill Review
Perdomo Patriarch Corojo Churchill - 7 X 48. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Corojo, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua (3 regions - Esteli, Jalapa & Condega). Full bodied.
Initial taste of pepper, cinnamon and oak wood.
First third - Strong flavor of spicy oak wood and cinnamon. Near the end of the first third, a tangy sweetness that I typically get from Corojo wrapped cigars emerges.
Second third - Spice, sweet citrus and leather now present. Hints of cinnamon and oak wood.
Last third - The cigar takes on more of a creamy sweet citrus leather taste, along with spice and a nice nutty flavor. I still am getting hints of cinnamon and oak. Very well balanced. Long finish of spice, sweet citrus and leather.
Construction, burn and draw was perfect. I really enjoyed this cigar and the complexity made this cigar interesting. Balance was very good as well. MSRP for this vitola is $7.99 which makes this a very good value. Highly recommended.
