Perdomo Factory Tour Blend Sun Grown – Cigar Review

perdomo-factory-tour-cigar-2
Up for review is the Perdomo Factory Tour Blend Sun Grown cigar.  This cigar is billed as a blend previously on available on factory tours, but has since been released due to customer requests.  The band is huge on this cigar and removing it reveals a fairly veiny wrapper leaf.  Once lit up, this stick starts off very peppery but that quickly fades into a sweet coffee and earth flavor.  That pepper comes back in full force for the final third and this cigar ended strong.  The construction was good and this stick produced a ton of smoke!  Overall, there is a lot to like about this cigar.  The flavor transitions kept it interesting the entire way.  These are real affordable, and at this price you’ve got to try one!

StraightUpCigars: This Factory Tour has a veiny wrapper leaf and peppery tobacco smell. Loose draw after cutting.
7:40 PM
Terry1: Nice looking cigar. Hugh band. That will have to come off soon. I had to make a couple of cuts to get a decent draw. It’s still on the snug side. Getting that musty barnyard note on the cold draw. Ready to light up.
7:41 PM
StraightUpCigars: Lighting!
7:41 PM
StraightUpCigars: It’s interesting that yours is so different than mine construction wise.
7:43 PM
Terry1: Are we both smoking a torpedo?
7:43 PM
StraightUpCigars: Yep.
7:45 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine has started off very peppery and woody. Leaves me with dry mouth.
7:49 PM
Terry1: I’m getting the pepper also. There’s a nice cedary sweet note and an earthy note that I’m liking. Cigar is producing plenty of smoke.
7:50 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine is making plenty of smoke too. I’m worried that it may be burning a bit too hot with this loose draw though. Got to slow it down.
7:52 PM
Terry1: My draw is opening up and it’s now about perfect. I had to cut more off the tip than I like. I never know how far down you can cut on a torpedo before it starts unraveling.
7:54 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine’s wide open and pedal to the metal even though I only did a shallow cut.
7:54 PM
StraightUpCigars: You’re right though, it does always seem to be a guessing game on the cut.
7:58 PM
Terry1: Band it coming off. I am not a fan of the big bands. If this were a robusto it would be fully covered by this one.
7:59 PM
StraightUpCigars: I agree. I actually took mine off right away b/c it was annoying. Came right off atleast.
8:00 PM
Terry1: Lol, it was annoying me too. Much better without that band.
8:01 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine has really mellowed out. Pepper was replaced by a sweet creamy flavor.
8:03 PM
Terry1: Same here. Pepper is transitioning into more of a baker’s spice note with a little more sweetness. Maybe some coffee and earth on the finish. Burn is a little wavy. Tasting pretty good right now.
8:06 PM
StraightUpCigars: Good call on the baker’s spice, I’m tasting that too now. I like this current flavor a lot.
8:15 PM
Terry1: Into the middle third and the flavors are very consistent. Nothing like the peppery start. I’m surprised the pepper faded so quickly to such a creamy sweet middle. It’s nice to just sit back and enjoy the cigar.
8:23 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine picking up a slight bitterness and that pepper is creeping back in. Real relaxing cigar.
8:33 PM
Terry1: Keep waiting for some bitterness but it hasn’t happened on mine. Still creamy sweet with a touch of cedar. Pepper and spice is about gone. Starting to feel a touch of strength as I start into the final third. Still burning fine. I did drop an ash into my lap but that was more my fault than the cigar. I wasn’t paying attention to how long it was getting.
8:34 PM
StraightUpCigars: I was worried about the construction given how different our cigars were prior to lighting, but I haven’t had any issues either.
8:47 PM
StraightUpCigars: Slowly getting more and more pepper as this thing progresses.
8:50 PM
Terry1: Yeah I’m getting some pepper now too. I’m kind of glad for it. I liked the smooth sweet middle but I was hoping for a little more punch in the end and now I’m getting it. Definitely feeling the nicotine now.
8:52 PM
StraightUpCigars: Me too, it’s got some strength. I like the transitions in this one.
8:55 PM
Terry1: You mentioned a drying affect earlier. I’m getting that now.
8:57 PM
StraightUpCigars: I’ve been chugging water this entire time. I’ve got cottonmouth.
9:00 PM
Terry1: I’m setting mine down. Good flavors and transitions. Did get a little strong for me towards the end. I enjoyed the journey.
9:02 PM
Terry1: Price of around $7 seems fair for this cigar.
9:03 PM
StraightUpCigars: Yeah, looks like they have several different wrappers too. Ratings coming.
9:04 PM
StraightUpCigars: I really liked this one a lot. Good transitions, good flavor, decent construction, fair price. Fun smoke overall.
9:06 PM
Terry1: I liked this cigar too and agree with your comment. Easy to recommend and it will be in my humidor.
