Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year Salomon

Cigar

This week I take on a super long named cigar, the Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year in the Salomon shape. These are available in Connecticut, sungrown and maduro wrappers and I hope to try each one but probably in different vitolas since the salomon runs $12 MSRP.

Punch Signature

Punch Signature

As much as I like to think I am young and hip, when it comes to the marketing of cigars, I am a traditionalist at heart.

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 79

These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based …

Bandolero Bravos

Bandolero Bravos

The Bandolero Bravos is part of a sampler set available at 2 Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire.  It comes in a three pack with Atabey and Byron cigars and special humidification tubes with humidifying solution that retails for $99.00.  I was sent one of these sampler sets for review by Barry Stein of 2 Guys so I decided to break these up into 3 reviews.  The first cigar I will be reviewing is the Bandolero Bravos.

Romeo Anejo

Cigar

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Vintage 2010
Binder: Dominican Olor Vintage 2008
Filler: Nicaraguan and Honduran Vintage 2009

This week I have a go with the Romeo Anejo in the Toro size (54×6) that has a MSRP of $9.00.

Starting out this Romeo Anejo with a smoothness up front and a sharpness on the aftertaste. Getting a lot of dark coffee coming through with a cinnamon spice. About halfway through and still a low medium at best. There is …
