Review Notes: I don't like any of the Perdomo cigars I've tried in the past, but I think Nick oughtta model some of his own line after this smoke he created for Cigars International. An extreme torpedo (not a toro, as is indicated above), this is a fine smoke. I won bids on a five of these Reds and another five of the Whites (by Camacho) about a year and a half ago, and smoked two of each in the first few months after receiving them. I recall not caring for the Whites at all, but I do remember really liking the Reds. Today, I thought I'd give this smoke another try to see how they aged and if my tastes had changed. Well, they aged well and my taste is steady on these. About half way into the smoke, the only thing that came to mind was "sungrown." These things remind me a lot of the Torano Virtuosos and, perhaps more so, the AF Cuban Belicosos. I'm not saying this cigar is as good as either of those smokes, but the flavor profile is very similar, and at a fraction of the price (if I remember correctly, I got these for about $2/stick). There's not a lot of complexity here, but if you like earth and leather, without harshness, the Legends Red is for you. What's more, this cigar burnt like a dream. It required just two minor touch-ups througout, and the chalky white ash clung in large clumps, dropping only twice during the entire smoke. If you can win them for about $9 per 5 on Cbid (those are bundle prices, folks), you can't do much better for an everyday smoke.
