Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro
This cigar is part of a three-version line. One version features the company’s “Champagne” Connecticut wrapper, and the other is wrapped in a sun-grown leaf. This one is for the earthy, dark cigar lovers out there. Inside, the filler blend of the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro cigar is made of six-year aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers and binders from Jalapa, Condega, and Estelí. The wrapper leaf is then aged for about 14 months in bourbon barrels. This allows the tobacco to infuse with an extra layer of complex flavor. The smoke doesn’t wind up tasting like liquor. It’s not a dipped cigar. Instead, you just get a bit more of those smoky, woody notes to enjoy.
While the Champagne version is probably the most popular, the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro cigar might be the highest-rated, on average. Cigar Aficionado gave it a 91, describing it this way: “Though initially strong with espresso and earth, this dark cigar tempers to show a chocolate-and-vanilla sweetness atop a woodsy, forest floor base accented by hints of leather and dried fruit.”
That’s the first time we’ve heard the note “forest floor” called out, but when you’re a cigar expert and a professional writer, you’re bound to get tired of calling something “earthy” for the 1,000th time. We appreciate the specificity, so the forest floor it is. Campers, hikers, hunters, and other dirt aficionados, see if you can detect that flavor.
It’s really a fine cigar that’s a joy to smoke. Perdomo with its vast tobacco library not only knows how to blend up a great stogie but to make it consistent from year to year. If you’ve liked the Reserve blend, it’s every bit as good as you remember it being. You can count on this one to keep up the Perdomo reputation no matter what decade it is.
