Review Notes: It's a nice looking stick, having a kind of smooth, glossy, tanned-leather looking wrapper and a huge frickin' band around a thick cigar. It's a solid stick that feels pretty well constructed. Clipping the cap, it draws well, and it lights up pretty easy - I used matches on a windy, snowy day so the light wasn't exactly the best there was. I also had to light the thing twice because I wasn't getting the volume of smoke that I was expecting. In short, it's a creamy, slightly peppery cigar (which tickles the tonsils) with that signature Perdomo flavor (sorta this sickly-sweet, syrupy, brown sugar taste). However, this time the "signature" flavor was quite muted, and in fact I would say that I could pick up hints of nutmeg in the taste. After the second light, I was getting an ample amount of smoke, although the burn was off pretty bad. I tried to correct it, but really to no avail. I don't know if it was the conditions outside, the fact I was lighting with matches, or the cigar itself that was causing some of the canoeing problems I had, but from start to finish the thing never burned straight. The ash was a silvery-gray hue, and held on for well over an inch. While I think the construction on them is pretty good, I'm apt to believe that the wrapper was somehow the catalyst for the errant burn; everything else burned fine but the wrapper was quite ragged in spots. Outside of that, I really don't have any complaints about this stick. It had a decent flavor - it didn't make me ill with that brown sugar sweetness - held an ash together, and had a decent construction. I think dry boxing for a day or two, perhaps letting these babies sit for six months, will probably help with the burn. All in all, the Perdomo Habano Corojo is a good medium / full smoke that does not have a really heavy aftertaste or finish. For about $99.00 a box, I think they're worth the money.
