Cigar Review: Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Sun Grown
Name – Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Sun Grown

Size – Toro
Wrapper – Bourbon Aged Habano
Tobacco Blend – Nicaragua
Pricing – $6.80
Body – Medium
The band is the standard Perdomo emblem in a nice sun kissed color scheme of copper, yellow and burnt brown.
The cigar is medium brown in color with minimal veins and invisible seams. The wrapper has a nice shine to it from the oils. The cigar is finished with what appears to be a double cap.
Aroma – Sweet brown sugar and molasses mixed with a cedar note.
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Raisin and sweet molasses.
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.
Bourbon – Basil Hayden
Wine – Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc
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.
