perdpatpic1 Hello and welcome to two new reviews on Today's reviews will cover the Perdomo Patriarch Corojo Lonsdale and the Berger & Argenti Clasico Belicoso. Keep reading to find out which one hit the spot, and which failed to impress.

Perdomo Patriarch Corojo Lonsdale

According to Perdomo's website, the Patriarch line is the most personal release from the brand. This is because it was created by Nick Perdomo, Jr. as a tribute to his late father, Nicholas Perdomo, Sr., who passed away in 2004. The Patriarch took three years to develop. You can bet that plenty of effort went into its creation, especially when you consider who it honors. The line is said to be flavorful, yet smooth. Sounds like a great combination to me.

The Patriarch Corojo Lonsdale measures 6 ½ x 42. The Patriarch also comes in five other sizes: the 5 x 50 Robusto, the 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Extra, the 6 x 50 Epicure, the 6 ½ x 54 Torpedo, and the 7 x 48 Churchill. The cigar's interior is made up of a blend of tobaccos from the fertile Condega, Esteli, and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua. It's exterior consists of a Cuban Seed Corojo wrapper. The Patriarch also comes in an Ecuadorian Connecticut or a Maduro wrapper. The Connecticut is the mildest of the three Patriarch versions, while the Corojo is medium to full-bodied in strength. The fact that Perdomo offers the Patriarch in three different versions is a plus. After all, variety is the spice of life.

The cigar has a very smooth appearance. It's not exactly the type of stick that will attract attention, but it's what's on the inside that counts. It has a creamy brown wrapper that has a good amount of oil on the surface. There are two simple bands that decorate it from head to toe. Near the head is a band that displays the Perdomo name. At the foot is a similar band that has the Patriarch moniker stamped on it. There are a few small veins that are visible, and no major imperfections. The cigar feels very firm to the touch without any soft spots. The pre-light aroma is of cedar, while the cold taste is spicy.

Once in action, the Patriarch Corojo Lonsdale burns well for the most part. The draw is a bit tight at the beginning, but it does loosen up after a while. The ash is more flaky than solid, but it does have a nice white color. The burn is even and requires zero touch-ups. It does need a re-light in the final third, however.
