Perdomo Double Aged 12 Year Vintage Maduro Robusto
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro
Binder: Cuban Seed – Nicaraguan
Filler: Cuban Seed- Nicaraguan
This week I am smoking the final installment of Perdomo’s Double aged 12 Year Vintage in the Maduro wrapper.
Just like the Connecticut and sungrown blends, the tobacco was aged for 12 years and the cigars were then aged in a bourbon barrel for 10 years. Other than the wrapper the binder and filler is the same as the other blends which will give you a more full bodied experience this time around.
When I lit up this cigar I tasted some very strong charred notes with a little bit of a sweet note in the mix. As I kept smoking it I tasted hints of graham cracker and like the previous blends the taste and aroma of the tobacco aged in a bourbon barrel was very prevalent throughout the smoking experience. I also started to taste a small amount of pepper and earthy notes. The pepper was more of a black pepper and as time went on I started to taste some baking spice on the flavor wheel as well. Since this blend has a Maduro wrapper it is on the full body side, however if you smoke a lot of cigars like I do it will be more of a medium to full bodied cigar.
Towards the end of this smoke I started to taste sweet notes again, it started to get creamy and really smooth. Just like the other 2 cigars I smoked over the last few weeks the flavor from the tobacco being aged in a bourbon barrel was consistent throughout the entire cigar!
No matter what you like to smoke, the Perdomo Double Aged 12 year Vintage Maduro or any of the other ones in the line up are definitely worth trying if you are looking for a reliable and everyday priced cigar! Look for them on the bottom shelf in the Perdomo section!
