Perdomo 2 (Perdomo squared) exponente 6×43

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro (yellow band)

Filler: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

 

Pre-light smell is light and sort of woody. The taste before I cut it had a spice to it. It had a strange almost sticky texture.

Cut with a punch. The draw is smooth and woody.

 

First few puffs: Spice and intense Cedar. Much like you can have a sharp cheddar, this has a sharp cedar.

First ash at almost an inch. Sweet, black pepper, and cedar taste. All three elements are clear but the cedar is not a good cedar. It’s almost pungent. It doesn’t match the other flavors at all. It may be even a little of a grassy cedar.

 

Half way point: Still sweet, still cedar, black pepper is milder and maybe switching to white pepper. The after taste is now a bakers (unsweetened) chocolate and coffee. There is a lot going on. The problem is that the flavors don’t seem to match themselves. But they are trying to. I think the best way to describe the flavor is this: In a vocal group (a capella) everyone has a part. Some are louder some are softer and each has their own pitch. When you put them together you get music. If this cigar was a choir then everyone would be singing their own song. On an individual basis each person would sound good. Throw them in a room together and it’s a hot mess. The flavors in this cigar are screaming. They fight with each other and aren’t in the same song. If the flavors were isolated then each of them would be good. But they aren’t isolated.

 

2 inches left: The flavors are finally starting to melt together. I wish this would have happened about 3 inches ago. It is now starting to work for me. The sweet and the cedar were the first to align. Once the pepper moved to the aftertaste it made the cigar more round. This makes me think that the first part of the cigar was somehow tainted or bad.

 

Last few puffs bring a warming note on the sweet aspect of the cigar. A touch of harshness signals the end.
