Perdomo Exhibicion Maduro Double Robusto Review
Perdomo Exhibicion Maduro Double Robusto - 5 X 54. Wrapper - Nicaragua (Aged 6 years before being aged an additional 14 months in bourbon barrels, Binder - Nicaragua (Cuban seed), Filler - Nicaragua (Cuban Seed). Full bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Earthy woodiness.
First third - Spicy Earthiness, wood and a raisin sweetness.
Second third - Spice continues with an Earthy, sweet raisin taste with woody notes. Very good balance.
Last third - Spice, Earth, sweet raisin/fruit and underlying woodiness. Long finish of Earthiness and spice.
Construction was excellent - beautiful dark brown maduro wrapper with no major veins. Smooth texture with a silky sheen. Burn was razor sharp with a solid gray ash that did not want to fall off. Draw was perfect,
Another fantastic cigar from the Perdomo camp. Plenty of complexity and wonderful balance. I really enjoyed the Earthiness and the raisin-like flavors balance with the spice and wood. This is a full bodied smoke so it would be best enjoyed after a full meal. MSRP is an amazing $6.50 which makes this another consumer friendly price point and a great value. I have to give this cigar a high recommendation to try.
