The Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged is one of the most beautiful cigars created by Nick Perdomo, the band is impressive as is the packaging, and the cigar itself, which is made of tobaccos grown in Nicaragua by the Perdomo family, is absolutely gorgeous. The maduro wrapper used in the making of this cigar has aged for 6 years, with an additional 14 month aging in bourbon barrels. As for the flavor, this is a sweet maduro that will deliver medium to full bodied flavor without the spice. A very smooth, high quality smoke at a reasonable price. – Cigar Scanner.

The pork tenderloin is on and it’s ready for a 2 hour long smoke. Wood of choice is Cherry. I injected the pork tenderloin with some apple juice, covered it with a nice pork rub, and with 30 min left in the cook time I will coat it in a nice pineapple BBQ glaze. This tenderloin will be sliced and then I have a nice pineapple and habanero marmalade to spread on each piece. Bon appetite. I can’t think of a better reason to enjoy a nice stogie than the one I just gave you.
My cigar of choice is the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Maduro. This is a full flavored cigar, which I love, if done right. And trust me this cigar is done right. You taste earthiness complemented by notes of chocolate and dried sweet fruit. The retro is a little spicy and will tingle your nose hairs, but it is finished off with a little sweetness.
For being a full bodied cigar, the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Maduro is pretty smooth. The ash and burn are fantastic, and I just love cigar wrappers that have been aged in bourbon barrels. If you drink bourbon you might as well smoke it too. You also can’t beat the price of this stogie, and I’m honestly surprised it doesn’t cost more than it does.
Let’s not forget the beautiful band on this cigar. The yellow band wrapped around the maduro wrapper just makes this cigar pop. If a cigar was a model, this cigar would be a super model.
I kind of wish I had two of these cigars right now. One for the two hour smoke of the pork tenderloin and another for right after I devour the pork tenderloin. If you like full flavored cigars, better yet, if you just smoke cigars, period, you need to try the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged Maduro.
