535. Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Robusto Maduro

Supplied by Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano Maduro
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaraguan Condega, Esteli & Jalapa

Size: 5×54, Robusto.

Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Oakwood, coffee bean and cane sugar.

1st third: Starts with a earthy sweetness, oakwood, black pepper, coffee beans and dark chocolate.

2nd third: Keeps consistent but without the black pepper spice.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp with a firm and stable white ash. Had to re-light about 5 times after I passed the first half.

Smoke: Light smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a tight draw.

3rd third: It revert back to how it was in the first part.

Duration: 22:05-23:05, 1h.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Not really my type of cigar, but I can certainly see why people like it.

Result: In my book this is an 86 point cigar.
