Two smokes in 6 hours? #Winning allllll day.
Been eye-balling this Perdomo Sungrown for a hot minute, had it in my humidor for a little while and just haven’t been able to pull the trigger. Smoked a few when we lived in Hawaii, but that was years ago and towards the end of that box I wasn’t feeling it like I was before.
So I waited. Until now.
I remember the first Perdomo Champagne I smoked hit me like a bag of bricks, all spice and boldness. This Perdomo Sungrown version is a little more delicate – still more of a full bodied smoke than medium, but subtler and easier to enjoy.
Pre-light definitely gave me some chocolate, but that’s about it. Might be my palate since I’ve already burned one earlier today, but I don’t think so. Paired this stogie with a Sammy Smith’s Chocolate Stout to enhance the experience.
This Perdomo Sungrown really is a beautiful cigar. Dark, oily, well constructed, medium draw, and burns fairly evenly. Complaints? None.
Other than a little chocolate and the occasional spice, I’m not really pulling anything else out of this stick. When blown through the nose, double the spice. Kind of refreshing, really.
I think the chocolate is transitioning to a coffee profile as the first 1 1/4 in comes and goes.
I hear a lot of folks talk about this being a ‘woody’ cigar and I gotta tell ya, I’m just not there right now. Been on the look out, but I think they’re getting a little fancy with their word count, if you know what I mean. 😉
Definitely getting more and more spice as this Perdomo Sungrown keeps burning. I’m going to run the risk of sounding like one of those fancy schmancy cigar snobs by saying this is peppery. There, I said it.
Chocolate, pepper, coffee. Overall an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
