Perdomo Cameroon Remainders

I can’t recall where I purchased this ultra-cheap cigar, and I have virtually no information about it. The only thing I can tell you is that I was probably intrigued by the ultra cheap price when I picked up a couple of these cigars. At around a buck a stick, I wasn’t expecting much. I grabbed my usual cup of water and wrote my thoughts…


Wrapper: Cameroon

Binder: ???

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Robusto 5.5 X 52

Price: Aprox. $20.00 for a bundle of 20


Pre-smoke & Construction:

When squeezing the length of the cigar, it was overall spongy with a few hard spots. The wrapper looked good, with a little roughness and small to medium veins. Sniffing the wrapper reminded me of soil. The pre-light draw was very loose, and tasted like wood and sweet natural tobacco.

The ash was a little flaky, and held for about an inch. The burn required no corrections.



The first third started with subtle sweet spice. Beneath that, earthy notes. The amount of smoke was plentiful and had a smooth feel.


The second third, although not great, wasn’t bad. The sweet spice lost some of its bite and was replaced with smooth, almost creamy earthiness. I think I detected hints of nutty notes as well. The smoke feel was thick and creamy as well.


The last third… Copy and paste my comments of the second third, and paste it here. The only change was that the body crept into the upper mild to lower medium range.



This was pretty much what I expected. A cheap mild to medium bodied value cigar. If it were any more expensive I would give it a bad review due to being one dimensional. But for the price, I have to say it was decent. You get what you pay for basically. With coffee I could see this doing the job as an easy morning smoke.
