Cigar Review: Perdomo Small Batch Maduro Toro Especial 2005
In general, I like Perdomo Cigars. For the most part, Nick Perdomo has done a great job blending high-quality, delicious cigars at respectable prices. So, when I found the Perdomo Small Batch 2005 Maduro Toro Especial on sale, I took a risk and bought a 5-pack.
The Perdomo Small Batch 2005 Maduro is a medium length, slightly chubby cigar with a dark, oily wrapper. It smells faintly of the Buffalo Trace whiskey Perdomo uses to cure the barrels they use for aging all of their filler tobacco. The first flavors are sweet and rich, and I'm very excited to enjoy this cigar.

The Perdomo Small Batch 2005 Maduro is an enjoyable cigar. It's full of flavor with a mostly even burn. This particular stick might have had a hole near the smoking end which caused some minor draw issues, but nothing that dramatically impacted the experience.
Because I would smoke this cigar again, and it's a good value for the money, the Perdomo Small Batch 2005 Maduro Toro Especial earns a CigarScore 5.
