Perdomo Double Aged Maduro 12 Year

Perdomo Double Aged Maduro 12 Year

Cigar

Simple writeup this week as it has been crazy busy around these here parts. This week I will finish up the Perdomo 12 Year triple play with the Perdomo Double Aged maduro 12 year cigar. This was around $10 msrp and is the robusto (even though it seemed bigger to me for some reason).

Starts out with a nice cocoa/chocolate taste and a little pepper. Base flavor is woody and the smoke is hearty, rather than being real …

Blind Tasting the Punch Signature Gigante

Blind Tasting the Punch Signature Gigante

Several years ago I was making the rounds at cigar shops in my area and I had an idea. Our video reviews were doing very well and perhaps we could generate some additional interest if I were to record local lounge patrons and gather their opinion on cigars. The catch was that I wanted to do it blind and see what they really thought of a cigar without brand bias.

The first couple that I recorded were a real …

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.

Again my tablet decided to freak out and scrub my notes so its gonna be short. You always can watch that video to get more information.

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. I don’t like flashy packaging (does anyone remember the lighted CAO Vision boxes?) and detest a cigar which comes with its own gimmicky back-story (ORTSAC 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis).

Last week, when a five-pack of Punch Signature Cigars arrived in the mail, I was torn. The new Punch Signature had a …

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 …

L’Atelier Lancero

L’Atelier Lancero

Cigar

This week I take a look at the L’Atelier Lancero cigar. I really tossed it around a lot whether I was going to post this because it seems like I got a dud. After smoking it I checked out other reviews and I did not get any of the flavors they did and that is why I think this one may have been a dud. It is hard with not being able to smoke during the week and having …
