Perdomo Nick’s Sticks Maduro Toro Cigar Review
This 5.5×54 cigar features a very dark, almost black oily thin mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and oily musty tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plenty of medium-full bodied smoke giving flavors of a super smooth, creamy textured oily tobacco taste with a bit of pepper adding to the long smooth finish. The first third mellows a bit to medium body, the flavors staying with a straight tobacco but creamy textured. It does have a bit of a rough edge to it, tasting a bit young. The 1/2 way point comes at 40 minutes in with no flavor changes. Burn is perfect, the ash holds on long and straight and smoke is still plentiful. Ending about the band point where it got too hot for my taste, the last third built up with ammonia giving me a rough back of the throat feel and a good headache by the end. If you pick up a box of these give them at least a year in your humidor, they are inexpensive and young. Thank you very much to the generous Hemry brothers Brian & Brandon for sending this for review!
