Perdomo Slow Aged Lot 826 Maduro

Monday, April 11th, 2011

In the morning I tend to prefer a cheaper cigar. Often I reach for the Perdomo Slow Aged but in the natural wrapper. I reviewed that cigar here. It dawned on me that I never tried the Maduro version of this cigar. I ordered a bundle from a popular online store to give it a try. At around $2.00 a cigar, it was hard to pass up. I paired this cigar with water for the review, but I usually smoke these in the morning with coffee.


Wrapper: Connecticut Maduro

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Glorioso 6 x 52

Price: Around $49.00 for a bundle of 20


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper was a little toothy looking, but overall was nice with very few flaws. The odor from the foot and wrapper was dung. Overall, the cigar was well packed, with a hard and spot here and there. The pre-light draw was free, and had a dark earthy flavor.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for around 1.5 inches.

The first third had simple flavors. The main flavor was a smoky earthiness, similar to a charred wood. Through the nose, I picked up a black pepper that had a small punch. As this third came to an end, I picked up some notes of coffee.

The second third kept a similar basic flavor profile as before. The only difference was the coffee had a sweetness to it. It was like adding a little sugar to your coffee. The pepper also calmed down a bit.

Not a lot to report in the last third. It kept the same smoky, charred wood core flavor along with earthiness. The sweet coffee was up next, and the pepper was the same as before. In summary, it was consistent with the previous third.

This was a decent lower medium bodied cigar. It was one dimensional and definitely had no wow factor. This is a yard gar or dog walker as they say. For me, the simple flavor profile is enjoyable enough for an early morning with coffee smoke. Does it meet the price point? I think so.
