|Perdomo Champagne Noir|
Earlier this year, Perdomo Cigars unveiled the Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir. This is a blend variation of the popular 10th Anniversary line. This was definitely a stronger cigar in terms of strength and body than the original Perdomo Champagne. The initial release was released in a personal favorite size vitola – a 6 x 60 “Super Toro”. This year at the 2011 IPCPR, additional vitolas were unveiled to help complete the blend’s line.
When I reviewed the Super Toro version of this cigar back in May, I was very pleased with the complexity, strength, and body that this cigar brought to the table. While I realize there are not a lot of 6 x 60 fans, the announcement of the new vitolas should please many people.
Just a little recap on the blend profile. The Perdomo Champagne Noir is an all-Nicaraguan Puro. The distinguishing factor is the Maduro wrapper. In the press release, Nick Perdomo describes the triple fermented wrapper by stating: “After carefully fermenting these thick Cuban‐seed Maduro wrappers for well over 14 months in a natural pilon, we age them an additional 6 months in oak bourbon barrels.”
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Cuban-seed Maduro
The Perdomo Champagne Noir line now lines up with the classic Perdomo Reserve Champagne line – with the exception of the puritos vitola.
