The Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro was created to mark this popular premium cigar’s decade of satisfying the palates of cigar enthusiasts. It is a medium to full-bodied cigar that is hand crafted at the Tabacalera Perdomo factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Its oily Cuban-seed Nicaraguan maduro wrapper has been carefully aged for 6 years and allowed to mellow in a bourbon barrel for an additional 10 months. The wrapper is then expertly placed over a Cuban-seed Nicaraguan binder and filler, which has been aged for 6 years. Perdomo cigars are highly regarded for their consistency and taste. – Cigar Scanner.

It’s Friday night and time for a cigar review. I decided on trying another one of the Maduro variety pack cigars that my brother in law got me for my 30th birthday. The Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro.
This stogie started off a little rough, I’m not gonna lie. The strength of this cigar was pretty intense, but I didn’t give up on it and I’m glad I didn’t. Once you get about half way through the cigar it mellows out completely. From the initial light it is like you chugged some very strong espresso mixed with some earthy dirt.
But, once you get to the sweet spot, about a 3rd of the way into the cigar it starts to simmer down. And from this point on, the cigar only gets better and better. You get a little bit of chocolate-vanilla sweetness with every puff.
The appearance, burn, and aroma all get 5 stars. I had a nice ash throughout the cigar and the 10th anniversary label gave it a nice high class kind of feel. The draw gets 3 stars, because I had to really puff on this cigar much more than I like. 4 stars for the taste, considering the very rough start. All in all, this is a very good stogie.
I decided to smoke this cigar in the man cave, while writing my Fantasy Football WR Rankings for 2021 Season (PPR Scoring) article. I got all the way to 36. Antonio Brown and the sweet spot of the cigar really started to kick in and I just had to start my review. Once you reach that part of the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro, it’s a game changer.
I’m telling you this is a cigar you need to try, but trust me, you just have to get through the initial start. It’s going to be rough, but it’ll be worth it.
