Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Connecticut
The interior blend on this Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel-Aged series incorporates aged Cuban-seed tobacco: Seco from Condega, Viso from Jalapa, and Ligero Estelí, each leaf bringing a different dimension of flavor to the cigar. These are extensively aged, with development times from 4 to 6 years, depending on which leaf you’re talking about.
Once the leaf reaches the right point of maturity, it’s time to bust out the bourbon barrels. There are three versions of this blend: one with a Connecticut wrapper, another with a sun-grown leaf, and finally a Maduro option. The Ecuadorian Connecticut version of this blend spends the shortest amount of time in the barrel – around 8 months. This allows the wrapper leaf of the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel-Aged Connecticut cigar to become infused with some of the flavor notes of bourbon.
This process doesn’t turn the cigar into something that tastes strongly of booze. Instead, it adds a subtle layer of complexity to the blend, making it a more interesting smoke without completely altering the original flavor profile of the tobacco. The ultimate taste of this cigar winds up displaying cedar, leather, caramel, and almonds. It’s a classic with a twist, essentially. The strength is mild-medium and so fairly normal for a Connecticut.
No one will be surprised to hear that this cigar is meant to be enjoyed with a whiskey or two. Perdomo recommends scotch or bourbon. Pour yourself a bit of the good stuff and light this one up when you’re in the mood to be carried away to smoky, woody Heaven.
