Stick: Perdomo 20th Anniversary Maduro Churchill (7.0"x56)

Obtained: From Cigar Int

Price: $9 ($45 for 5pack)

Construction: Very minor errors with this, nothing to be mad over. 8.8/10

Pairing: Darjeeling Tea (no ice /sadface)

Wrapper/foot aroma: Nothing that stood out to me.

Method of entry: Double guillotine

Toast/light: Simple as per usual, quick light no problems

First third: WOW, this thing had such a smooth cocoa nutty taste to it, had no expectation of this and it would have overshot any that I could of had.

Second third: It followed through with the 1/3rd, there appears to be some tobacco taste come in here and there but still so smooth and tons of chocolate taste.

Final third: It kept just like the others. While not complex (to me) it was so delicious!

Burn: It had a few burn issues (I did not let it sit as long as I should have) so I had to relight about 2-3 times, still tasted great.

Draw: Draw was very smooth with very little resistance. Such an ease to smoke.

Ash: Ash was tight and held strong.

Overall: All of the (2) perdomo's (iirc) I have had have not done me wrong. This was a pleasant surprise and will buy a box in the future 100% sure.

Thanks for the review, Brandon. I like many of the Perdomo blends and will have to give these a try.
