Perdomo 20th Anniversary Sun Grown Robusto

Perdomo makes great cigars, so when I find out that the company had a recent release in the form of the Perdomo 20th Anniversary Sun Grown, I had to give one a try.  This cigar, like many others recently reviewed here on Puff, was introduced at this year’s IPCPR show in Orlando.  Before I jump into sampling this tasty looking Robusto, it is worth noting that this line has also been made into a Maduro version as well.  That’s enough for the intro, let’s break this baby down.

The Perdomo 20th Anniversary Sun Grown Robusto measures 5 x 56.  The Robusto is just one of several sizes in the line offered by Perdomo.  Here are the others: 6 x 56 Epicure, 6 x 60 Gordo, 6 1/2 x 54 Torpedo, and the 7 x 56 Churchill.  The 20th Anniversary Sun Grown has a Nicaraguan filler and binder.  Its wrapper is also Nicaraguan, making it a Nicaraguan puro made completely from tobaccos from the fertile Central American country.  The Sun Grown wrapper is the highlight of the cigar.  It’s aged for at least six years and is then aged for an extra 14 months in a bourbon barrel.  In terms of strength, the 20th Anniversary Sun Grown is said to be full-bodied.

Perdomo cigars are usually attractive in their appearance, and the 20th Anniversary Sun Grown Robusto is no different.  The medium-brown wrapper has a decent amount of oil and some medium-sized veins.  The cigar looks great under light and seems smooth overall.  The large band looks great.  It displays the Perdomo logo and 20th Anniversary name over a black, gold, red, and white color scheme.  The Robusto feels firm to the touch.  Before lighting, I detect an earthy aroma and a cold taste that is spicy.

Perdomo is a quality company, so I expected this 20th Anniversary Sun Grown Robusto to burn like a charm.  I have to say that it did not disappoint whatsoever.  The draw is good and there’s plenty of thick smoke.  The burn stays razor sharp from beginning to end without the need of any help from my lighter.  No re-lights are needed either.  The gray ash is solid.  The Robusto gets an A-plus in this department.
