Review by Luc Blanchard, Official MMC Reviewer (@mysticks35mm)
Perdomo 10th Anniversary Sun Grown
Size: Epicure (Toro) 6x54
Wrapper – Nicaraguan (sun grown)
Binder – Nicaraguan
Filler – Nicaraguan
Bakers spice (cloves)
This well constructed cigar is almost chisel-tip, offering a round foot and a soft box pressed cap end. The Nicaraguan puros outer layer is thick in nature, with a smooth but modeled surface almost void of any prominent veining. The preignition aromas are delightful and reminiscent of a fresh box of raisins/prunes and cocoa. A straight cut leads to an open draw and the 1st review out of the “July” My Monthly Cigars Box.
A toast/light and an immediate and prominent toasted wood alongside some strong pepper, considering we are a dime in. Moving in an inch and the primary woody quality merges with a general baking spice. Medium in strength and burning well, the finish lingers with the same but magnified forward qualities.
Toasted sugar? Think overdone marshmallows or a cream brûlée for those who indulge. Well passed the ½ way point and still consistent, although the strength of the experience does see an increase into near full. If you are a mild smoker, this may test your limits.
The nub is “set the mothership to the nearest sun, full speed”. A pepper bomb of sorts, with notes of heavily toasted wood and cloves and medium plus/full strength Although not a complex journey, the notes that are present, alongside a legendary combustion only craves me to repeat the experience.
