Cuban Parejo by Perdomo

Corona Gigante (7.5 x 56)

Wrapper: Nicaraguan sun grown Rosado

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan


This is a large, almost intimidating cigar. It is a reddish brown in color with a bit of sparkly bloom to it. The cello has yellowed a bit. The smell is a bit on the earthy side with maybe a bit of coco. It’s hard to tell. The smell is mild. The wrapper is toothy. The lick on the cap is sweet coco and coffee. It feels a bit oily and it makes my mouth literally water. Cut with a punch. The draw is perfect and has a taste of classic tobacco and maybe coco.


The light is quick given the size of this cigar. The smoke that is given off during the light has an earthy aroma. This is mirrored in the first draw. It’s kind of a sweet earth. The hints of coco are more dark chocolate once lit. It is fairly faint. The burn is cool. After a few minutes a mild spice on the cinnamon side develops.


The first ash fell at about 1 ½ inches. A relight from my own neglect is needed. For once I’m not smoking fast enough. Even though this light is a bit more in haste than the first the flavor remains consistent. This isn’t the end of the burn issues however. Nearing the halfway point t corrective light is needed. One side is burning faster than the other. By the way it is doing so it is clear that it is a construction issue. The flavor is still very good and consistent, given the number of times the torch has hit the cigar.


The finish has not been notable. Its not that it isn’t there, it’s that it doesn’t stand out in any way. It’s easy to forget. It seems to be a very mild nut flavor.


As the cigar comes to an end the draw gets a bit harder but not by too much. The flavor is much of the same with maybe a bit more of the coco coming out. The finish is still short even this far in. the burn issues are for the most part gone.
