Perdomo Cuban Bullet 2.0–Maduro

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

I tried the Cuban seed wrapped version of this cigar awhile back. I remember thinking it was a decent cigar for the price range. When I ran across the Maduro wrapped Cuban Bullet, I thought it was worth trying. What have I got to lose besides a few dollars. So as always, I paired this cigar with water, and offer you my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro

Binder/Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Robusto 5 x 50

Price: Around $3.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The shiny wrapper had small veins and a rugged, bumpy look to it. The smell coming off of the wrapper and foot were earthy, almost a mild compost. The cigar was well packed, and had a hard spot here and there. The pre-light draw had slight resistance, and had a mild earthy flavor.

The ash held for about an inch, and the burn required one minor correction. There was plenty of smoke volume. Clouds of smoke billowed for the entire cigar.

The first third had a simple yet decent flavor profile. Up first was a earthy and somewhat woody flavor. I also detected subtle notes of sweet bitterness. It was like the subtle bitterness you get in the aftertaste of chocolate. Through the nose I found a mild pepper with a slightly sweet, maduro-ish finish.

The second third had an increase of that maduro-ish sweetness. It bordered on being dry cocoa. Like before, there was earthiness with subtle woody notes. The flavor didn’t change when passing smoke through the nose. A mild peppery, sweet spice is the best I can describe it. There was that slight bitter finish present. I covered that in the previous third as well.

The last third had virtually no change. The sweetness picked up in strength, but otherwise things held steady and consistent. Copy and paste my comments from the second third here.

This was a decent medium bodied cigar. It was pretty much what I expected. A fairly simple, one dimensional cigar with no WOW factor. For you picky bastards who demand a complex flavor profile, this cigar isn’t for you. If you are looking for a decent cigar at a reasonable price, you may want to give this a chance.
