Before releasing in the United States, the Perdomo Factory Tour Blend was previously only available at the Perdomo factory in Nicaragua after you finished, you guessed it, the factory tour. However, the cigar was so successful for the brand that Nick Perdomo and his team decided to bring the cigar to market.
So, after hearing about this cigar from the owner of a lounge here locally, I decided to give the Perdomo Factory Tour Blend Maduro Churchill a try.
The first few puffs were really delicious. The wrapper was beautiful, and the mixture of Nicaraguan tobaccos lead to expectations of a wonderful cigar.
After smoking about the first inch, the wonderful flavors that got the cigar started, began to fade. Through the middle of the cigar, the draw was a little tight.
Line: Factory Blend Maduro
Size: 7 x 52
The first third of the Perdomo Factory Tour Blend Maduro Churchill was delicious. The middle third was ok. And the final third was disappointing. It was like all of the intention to detail went into the first half of the cigar and none was paid to how the smoke finished.
While I didn't love this cigar, I suspect, based on my experience with other Perdomo cigars, that other vitolas might be better and the filler/binder/wrapper ration will improve the experience. So, if I can find one, I plan to buy and smoke an epicure (toro) of this same cigar.
Because I didn't love the flavors, but because the burn and draw were decent enough, the Perdomo Factory Tour Blend Maduro Churchill earns a CigarScore 3, and I plan on having it again, just in a different size.
