The description does sound strikingly similar to what I recall the description on the old maduro being, but I don't think the old maduro ever came in a 5x50 vitola. Who knows...

Re: Perdomo Oscuro?

Their size listings can be suspect, as well.

Re: Perdomo Oscuro?

CI's just renaming the old Reserve Maduro line. The "Oscuro" cigars have the same band as the maduros, and when I put them in the same box as similarly sized maduros, they blended in perfectly. Regardless of what they're called, they are a tasty, and now very inexpensive, smoke.

I'm too much of a noob to give a review, but I bought 2 churchills at my B&M about 3 weeks ago. I bought them because I am a Perdomo fan and I love his ESV's and 2nds. I took the afternoon off today and after washing cars, I smoked one. A tight smoke that I liked.

It was fine with me, but after seeing the prices on joe's daily deal, I would order more if I had the space. I bought them at the B&M for ~ 8 a stick. Not a $8 stick, but for 2.75 each, I would buy them again. Just my .02.

Marketing... just like those Relics.
