Perdomo Slow-Aged Lot 826

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

At under $2.00 a stick, how could I pass up trying this cigar? Especially since Matt donated a couple to me to review. As always, I paired up with a glass of water and smoked a couple of these to review.


Wrapper: Connecticut Natural

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Robusto 5 x 52

Price: Bundle of 20 $45.00


Pre-smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had a couple medium sized veins and a few bumps, but overall looked good. Squeezing the cigars length, I found no soft or hard spots. The wrapped smelled like wood and earthy tobacco. The foot had a similar odor with an addition of sweet spice. The pre-light draw had a very slight resistance, and a sweet earthy/woody taste.

The burn required a touch up in the first third, but that was it. The ash held for over an inch. Overall construction was good.



The first third started with an easy, smooth earthy taste. When passing the smoke through the sinus, I found peppery and woody notes.


A sweet spicy flavor kicked in the second third. The sweetness almost became chocolaty but remained an unknown sweet flavor. Along with a smooth pepper, the smoke feel became dry and toasty. The earthy notes from the first third fell into the background, while the woody flavors were very noticeable.


The last third didn’t offer any great change from the second third. Woody sweet flavors dominated the flavor profile. Sweet peppery notes were detected through the nose, and the smoke feel remained dry and toasty. I could barely detect the earthy flavors at all anymore.



This was a decent medium bodied cigar. It certainly wasn’t the most complex flavor profile, but for around $2.00 a cigar, I can’t complain. I enjoyed the cigar as a whole, and again, for the price it exceeded what I would expect for a cheap smoke.
