Review Notes: Picked up a couple of singles at the local shop the other day while out for a drive in the M. I was looking for a few new tastes to try, and the shopkeeper recommended the new Perdomo Reserve Maduro and the LFD Cabinet in Cameroon. Snagged one of each. First the appearance: This cigar looked real promising. I picked the toro size. It was pretty clearly a Cameroon, showing the abundance of tooth and oiliness typical to that wrapper. Some slight irregularities in the wrapper leaf, including a light blemish and a seam that was folded under were the only imperfections. The cigar was straight as an arrow with a tight roll and a pleasingly dark wrapper. Very well made cap, and uniformly packed. Pre light aroma was good, but a bit of a tight draw manifested itself immediately. When I lit it up, I got a blast of a distinct chemical taste. That harshness lasted through the first inch or so, gradually giving way to a more traditional flavor. Relatively strong for a Dominican blend, the cigar did develop a bit of medium-strong character in the middle. The draw loosened up a bit as I went along, but never opened to the point of being ideal. Decent finish, but the chemical taste that it started with left my tongue feeling kind of coated. The aroma, however, was strong and spicy. Great cigar? I didn't think so. But a decent middle of the road smoke. I'll try putting one away for a few months, as I generally like Cameroon cigars. Hopefully the funny taste will age off these. If the cigar's taste ever lives up to it's look, it'll be a beauty.
