After Toast:

First third – ​A nice spice mixed with a sweet deep cedar starts this smoke off. Pepper hits the back of the throat. This quickly turns into a real deep leather like flavor. A sweet floral note mixed with rich earth follows to finish this third. Lots of flavor variety. Burn is sharp. Ash a light gray.

Second Third – ​This third turns real earthy with the sweet spice kicking around on the finish. A tangy cedar note reveals occasionally in this third. The burn went wavy at this point and the ash fell just before the halfway point of the cigar.

Final Third – ​​Final third has cedar, caramel and a light leathery finish to this cigar. Really delightful flavor components in this stick.

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Basil Hayden

Wine – Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc

Overall Experience:

The Perdomo Habano with the bourbon barrel aged sun grown tobacco is one of my favorite cigars in the Perdomo Cigars line. Tons of flavors adding a nice complexity to this stick. For the price the experience is great and I would recommend this cigar to everyone.
