Default Perdomo fresh rolled torpedo

Mark aka Borndead1 bombed me this cigar some time ago and it was time to review it. These Nicaraguan puros come in a Cuban wheel and are very wallet friendly.



This 6 1/2 x 52 torpedo comes without a band and has a sharp top. The wrapper is pretty and oily and only has some minor veins. The cigar itself doesn't have a lot of aroma, just some hints of barnyard. The construction feels good. The predraw is just fine and releases some raisin.



The first flavor I taste is a firm earthy one combined with some leather and pretty soon some wood too. After half an inch I also taste a mild acid metallic flavor and it feels a bit creamy. After an inch the metallic flavor grows a bit in strength and then disappears.



The flavors are a mix of coffee, earthy flavors, leather and wood with a leathery aftertaste. The leather is different than the famous Cuban leather though. After the middle point of the cigar the coffee and earthy flavors are gone. I can taste wood with a minty note. The leather returns with the earthy tones. After that it's a continues change between the main flavors wood, leather and earthy tones.



I get a reasonable amount of smoke and the draw is fine. The burn is straight as an arrow and the firm ash is light colored. The cigar is full flavored yet medium bodied.



Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, a Cuban wheel of these cigars is a steal and they are very nice.

Thanks for the great review! I like Perdomo's and this one sounds like a gem! One question, though - what is a "Cuban Wheel"?
