Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniv. Criollo

Smooth, creamy, and enjoyable.

Introducing, Perdomo Reserve 10 Year Anniversary cigars, a celebration of 10 successful years for the Perdomo Reserve brand. The Criollo cigar is simply spectacular and features a silky-smooth Cuban-seed Criollo wrapper that's oily with a hue reminiscent of lightly creamed coffee. Beneath this leaf, a Cuban-seed mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers that have been patiently aged to perfection, bringing an exceedingly elegant smoke to the table. Enjoy a rich tobacco core that's creamy in character, with notable hints of coffee and roasted almonds throughout the burn. The strength gradually builds from medium to full, completing an eventful and satisfying experience you'll soon crave.

Customer Reviews of “Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniv. Criollo”
This is a great medium bodied cigar. No clue why this one is so under the radar. I like it better than CAO Criollo, which is fuller in body (and I'm a full bodied smoker mainly). Consistency is top notch. Perfect construction and draw. Give this cigar a chance people, you're missing out.

I am currently smoking one of these beauties (Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Criollo)----simply excellent! I was lucky enough to get one from a local guy who got a few in Vegas a couple of weeks ago. I'm pairing it with a Cabernet Sauvignon and I'm in heaven! Once these are available, I'm stocking up! Whoops---back to the balcony for more smoking pleasure! Nick Perdomo has done it again!

I have had a few of these vitolas for almost 2 yrs. I have the robusto size and the aging has made these cigars passionately delicious. I enjoy pairing this stick with either a Cabernet or a Shiraz. However, the last time I paired this smoke with an Argentinian Malbec and the complexity of the cigar was that much more apparent. The appearance of the stick is completely vein-free. With earthy copper tones in the wrapper label, and the subtle sheen of the wrapper leaf, the cigar is almost to pretty to smoke! The opening offers some soft wood notes and underlying spice. As it burns, the draw is perfect, offering large smoke clouds (I use a cutter). I am most intrigued by the consistent white-pepper like spice that keeps the palate awake. The aging has married the tobaccos well. This is definitely a stick that is great now and better later!

I bought a box of the Figurados at a Perdomo event at CI. This has become my favorite everyday smoke. It starts off with hints of cocoa and coffee and and the character builds to a strong but, smooth finish. I enjoy most of the Perdomo line and recommend this to folks that enjoy a medium to full bodied cigar. I am waiting for the next Perdomo event so I can buy another box.

Have these available to me from my local shop and decided to give them a try. So glad I did. Easy draw, even burn with billows of smoke and the flavor was great. I was apprehensive about the criollo cause I've never had much luck getting an even burn but this one put that theory to bed. Aside from the usual nice long draw which gave me the pepper and cocoa notes, I took small quick draws and was surprised at the different flavor profile, I got an almost toasted caramel feel. Great cigar. Will be buying a box in the near future when I've run out of the few sticks I bought.

Perdomo 10th Anniversary Criollo

Posted by Jeff K

When the new Perdomo 10th Anniversary line was launched several months ago, I was excited. I had always been a big fan of Perdomo cigars and was eager to dig in. Initially, I smoked through the three different 10th Anniversary blends- Criollo, Maduro, and Champagne (Connecticut). All great tasting, all great quality – which has always been my experience with Perdomo, but the price was a little steep. Not that they were outrageous, but the sticks were priced in the $6- $8.50 range – higher than some of their other lines which I found I enjoyed equally as much. For this reason alone, the 10th Anniversary quickly fell to the back burner.

In a cigar industry consumed by post SCHIP tax related price increases (and other egregious price increases by some), Perdomo has LOWERED the price on their 10th Anniversary – by $1 to $1.50 per stick. After the shock, awe and disbelief had settled, I figured it was as appropriate a time as any to revisit the 10th Anniversary line. When I burned through all 3 again, I found that the Criollo blend was most in line with my taste, so I’ve decided to give it the first review (the others to follow suit shortly).

The 10th Anniversary Criollo utilizes a beautiful Cuban-seed Criollo wrapper and an all-Nicaraguan blend of aged fillers. This cigar definitely has a great look. The wrapper is a dark tan and shows a nice oily, toothy and even texture. Even pre-light, the cigar has a great smell and the taste of cedar and pepper.

From first puff to last, the 10th Anniversary Criollo has an amazing flavor. Consistent throughout, it is remarkably smooth with an enjoyable, pure tobacco taste. With very subtle hints of cedar, mocha, roasted nuts, and spice, it has a great balance and plenty of flavor, but never approaches overwhelming. A hearty, rich aroma really completes this medium-full bodied blend.

I really like the fact that the Perdomo 10th Criollo isn’t overdone - great flavor and well-made but not over the top. It could have been richer, or stronger, or spicier, but it stays its course. It demonstrates a really organic, natural tobacco taste that is sometimes lost or overpowered in many of today’s other premium blends.

The 10th Anniversary Criollo is an impeccably crafted cigar that is loaded with hearty, well-proportioned flavors. It’s an authentic example of traditional tobacco blending and now at the lower prices (starting at $4.50/ea.) becomes a highly appetizing choice.
