The cigar band is tangerine like orange gold with black rings and gold font. The cigar is a nice mid brown in color with a nice shine to it from the oils. There are a few visible veins and invisible seams. The cigar is double capped.


Aroma – Cedar and raisin.

Type of Cut – Straight Cut

Cold Draw – Cedar and Raisin

After Toast:

First Third: Cedar and spice start this stick off and quickly gets earthy on the lingering finish. Some floral notes sporadically pop in the picture in this third too. The burn is perfect. The ash is white and holding strong.

Second Third: some nutty notes co mingle with the tangy cedar notes in this third. The cigar turns a slight vanilla spice / nutmeg. Ash fell at about 2.5 inches.

Final Third: Final third the spice, cedar and earthy notes shine through on the plate. More of a medium finish than the filler bodied experience of the rest of the stick.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine –  Chandon Sweet Star

Scotch – Glenmorangie

Overall Experience:

The Perdomo Reserve Champagne Sun Grown overall experience was a medium to full bodied one. I enjoyed this stick although there are better offerings within the Perdomo line. All of their sun grown product is great. Given the opportunity I’d tell anyone to give this a shot as it has become one of their classic go to sticks in the line.
