A nice coffee component mixed with earth and leather on this transition. Pepper dies off completely here. Some cedar wood notes come in at the end of the third. Burn turned slightly wavy. Ash fell at the 2.25-inch mark.

The stick finishes nutty with leather and a cedar wood like finish. Pepper sticks in the final third on the retro hale. Burn self-corrected to sharp.

Overall Experience:

The Perdomo Grand Cru 2006 Sun Grown is a nice stick with slight complexity. A complete medium to full bodied smoking experience. I thought this was a good overall experience for the price point and would more than likely have it again given the opportunity.
