perdhab1 Cigar reviews are today’s theme here at, and we have two cigars from respected brands to inspect. Keep reading to see how the Perdomo Habano Corojo Robusto and the Tatuaje La Casita Criolla HCBC Corona Gorda fared.

Perdomo Habano Corojo Robusto

In a time of rising cigar prices, it’s nice to know you can purchase a stogie that is easy on the wallet yet offers a quality smoking experience at the same time. Perdomo is one company that offers such cigars, and the Habano Corojo line is a perfect example. It manages to deliver quality ingredients and construction while remaining affordable. Sounds like a good combination to me, and I am now ready to give the Habano Corojo Robusto a try.

The Perdomo Habano Corojo Robusto measures 5 x 52. The line also comes in the following sizes: the 4 ¾ x 44 Petit Corona, 5 ½ x 54 Toro, 6 x 60 Gordo, 6 ½ x 54 Torpedo, 7 x 56 Presidente, and the 7 x 60 Gran Torpedo. The cigar’s filler is a complex blend of three distinct Nicaraguan tobaccos. Tobaccos from Esteli bring full flavor to the table, Condega tobaccos offer aroma, and Jalapa Valley tobaccos give the cigar some sweetness. I’m unsure as to the binder that is employed, but I do know that a Corojo wrapper completes the cigar’s composition. As with other lines from the brand, Perdomo also offers the Habano in Connecticut and Maduro versions. The Corojo is medium to full-bodied just like the Maduro, while the Connecticut is the mildest of the three under the Perdomo Habano umbrella.

I definitely give Perdomo an A-plus for the presentation of the Habano Corojo Robusto. The two decorative bands are very detailed and give the cigar a premium look. The top band features the Perdomo Habano name and company logo, while the band at the foot has the Corojo moniker stamped on it. The implementation of gold/brass accents onto each band is impressive and shows that the company put a lot of effort into the design. The cigar itself has an oily wrapper with a few veins here and there. The construction is superb and free of any significant defects. The cigar feels very firm to the touch and makes me wonder if the draw will be affected. Right before lighting, I give the cigar a closer look and notice a scent and cold taste of earth.

The solid construction and appearance of the Perdomo Habano Corojo Robusto translates into a satisfactory burn. The draw is not too tight as I had anticipated. Instead, it’s just right. The ash is light gray in color and solid in its form. The burn is even from start to finish and requires no touch-ups whatsoever. The cigar also manages to stay lit on its own to the very end. The burn is nice and slow, and a nice volume of thick, aromatic smoke fills the air.
