Perdomo Patriarch Maduro

Monday, June 13th, 2011

I tend to think of Perdomo as an “Everyman’s” cigar. They often are right down the middle of the road in flavors and price, which isn’t a bad thing. The Perdomo Patriarch comes in 3 wrappers – Cuban seed Corojo, Ecuadorian Connecticut, or Nicaraguan Maduro. Today I am reviewing the Maduro wrapped version of this cigar.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro

Binder/filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Epicure 6 x 50

Price: Around $6.00

Purchased by me.


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had some issues, and it may have been due to improper storage and handling. Towards the head, the wrapper was coming apart. At the foot, there was a crack here and there. I had some vegetable glue handy and made repairs as needed. The wrapper and foot had a sweet dark odor. The cigar was pretty well packed, with some soft and hard spots. The pre-light draw had slight resistance. The pre-light flavor was a simple earthiness.

The burn required one minor correction, and the ash held for an inch or so. Everything went well despite the trauma the cigar went though… improper handling, storage, and all.

The first third was a simple combination of coffee, earthiness, and some pepper through the nose. As I progressed on the smoke feel became a little thicker and more satisfying, but it stayed well within the medium range. There was a powdery sweet note that developed in to cocoa as time went on.

The second third had a dominant dry cocoa flavor. Coffee, wood, earthy notes were up next much like in the first third. When retro-haling, the peppery zing kicked up a notch in strength, but remained smooth.

The last third kept the same pace as the second third. It may not sound like anything special, but it was pleasant and satisfying.

This was a solid medium bodied cigar that hit the spot for me. It wasn’t what I would call a WOW cigar, but it stood on it’s own and delivered a relaxing experience. I think Perdomo Patriarch Maduro is worth a try.
