Cigar Review: Perdomo Habano Sun Grown Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

Today we continue our series of blind cigar reviews, where our goal is to provide you with a totally objective, completely neutral review of a cigar. Ellory went into this review completely blind; that means without knowing what it is, who made it, how much it costs, or what's in it. To see the entire series of blind cigar reviews, click here.

One thing I love about the CigarScore Cigar Date Labels is that they allow me to track when I got my cigars. So, as I did today, when I pull out a stick for review, I know I got this Perdomo Habano Sun Grown Robusto way back in 2020.

The first thing I noticed about the Perdomo Habano Sun Grown Robusto is that it looks great. The Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper is medium brown and looks fantastic.

After cutting the end, the cold draw had flavors of white wood. Once lit, the Perdomo Habano Sun Grown had a fantastic aroma that made me eager to start smoking. On the first few puffs, the flavors delivered spice, something creamy, and a little bit of leather.

Through the middle of the Perdomo Habano Sun Grown Robusto, the flavors were quite spicy. While I was able to get notes of cedar and the cigar had a good draw, the predominant characteristic of this cigar was spice.

At about the 30-minute mark, the flavors were both mild and spicy at the same time, which caused a little palate confusion. The Perdomo Habano Sun Grown was also not particularly sweet, but it was complex and interesting.

Final Thoughts

For a robusto, the Perdomo Habano Sun Grown smoked for an admirable 72 minutes. Overall, this cigar had a good draw and the flavors were good. However, the burn wasn't razor-sharp, but I still really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this cigar and it came in at a lower price than I'd have guessed. In my opinion, this cigar is a great value for the money, plus it tasted good. So, the Perdomo Habano Sun Grown Robusto earns a CigarScore 5.
