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).

The first couple that I recorded were a real …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 82

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based …
