Perdomo Squared Maduro Robusto

The Perdomo Squared, or “Perdomo 2”, as some might list it, is a re-release from Tabacalera Perdomo. This 2008 Limited Edition cigar suffered from burn issues with its predecessor, but its variety of flavors apparently helped it maintain some popularity amongst cigar fans. For this review, I will be smoking one of the line’s Maduro Robusto cigars.

The Perdomo Squared Maduro Robusto measures 5 x 50. It's one of four sizes offered in the line, with the others being the 5 1/2 x 54 Epicure, 6 1/4 x 54 Torpedo, and the 6 7/8 x 50 Churchill. The cigar's filler and binder are made up of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobaccos that have been aged for five years. The wrapper, meanwhile, is of the Nicaraguan Maduro variety. Like other Perdomo lines, the brand offers the Squared in a Natural version as well for those seeking a smoother smoke with a nutty profile. In terms of strength, the Squared Maduro is listed as being medium to full-bodied.

From its first impression, the Perdomo Squared Maduro Robusto looks like a premium stick. The decorative band near the head stands out with its yellow and gold colors. It features the Perdomo name in large capital letters. The band beneath it says Limited Edition 2008 over a black and gold color scheme. The cigar itself has a dark and oily wrapper. There are not too many veins that are visible, and it appears to have solid overall construction. I can tell that it is well-packed with tobacco due to its firmness. Before lighting, I sense a spicy taste and a sweet aroma.

After striking the Perdomo Squared Maduro Robusto with my lighter, the cigar exhibits a solid burn. The company seems to have corrected burn issues that plagued its initial release, as this Robusto offers smooth sailing all the way through. The burn is even, and no touch-ups or re-lights are needed. The draw is good and there's plenty of sweet smelling smoke produced. The ash is solid and gray in color. We are good to go in this department.
