Hold the elaborate packaging and expensive marketing ploys, and pile on some handmade goodness from Perdomo. The Perdomo Fresco is a handsome no-nonsense handmade from Nicaragua teeming with top-notch tobaccos. Fresco comes chock full of aged Nicaraguan long-fillers from the fertile valley of Esteli secured by a Jalapa binder, and nestled beneath hand-selected natural or maduro wrappers. A smooth and well-balanced blend, Fresco cigars deliver renowned Perdomo quality at everyday prices.
Thanks to a silky smooth Connecticut wrapper, the natural delivers a mild to medium-bodied experience boasting smooth and creamy nuances backed by an undeniable note of cedar. While the Maduro, equipped with an oily and dark Connecticut broadleaf, exudes a medium to full-bodied burn highlighted by deep notes of espresso, spice, and leather. The addition of the Sun Grown wrapper really completes the brand. With it comes an ample amount of spice and pepper, and finishes with a sweet earthiness.
“Always thought these were a Perdomo knockoff. I've bought a few here and there at my local shop for a cheap everyday type smoke. Anyways, both the natural and the maduro are good, never had any sort of lighting or draw issues, always has clouds of thick smoke and the flavor stays consistent until about an inch or so out then it gets bitter. But I never feel guilty chucking it because of the price.”

“I got a Pedromo Fresco Torpedo (Maduro), off of a friend the other day and I was pleasantly surprised. It lit well, had a smooth draw, and was flavorful. For a medium bodied it is pretty good. At $3 a stick, (at my local shop), it is a real bargain for the quality you get. I use this as a daily smoke which won't break the bank anytime soon.”

“I got a great deal on a bundle of the Fresco torpedos, and I was surprised at how good they were. I grabbed them from the UPS driver and lit one up: great burn throughout, creamy smoke, and a smooth leathery flavor with a bit of spice. After a few weeks in the humidor they are even better.”

“These cigars are top notch. Don't let the price fool you, this is a very flavorful cigar. My favorite is the maduro torpedo. Do yourself a massive favor and try it out.”

“This has been my daily smoke here lately. For the price they're pretty darn good. Nothing mind blowing about it. Just a good consistant stick. I do get one every now and again with construction flaws but for the price it's a good deal.”
“I have been a fan of Perdomo cigars since I first started smoking cigars over 10 years ago. I first tasted a Fresco at a local brew house that had a "Cigar Night" special - a pint of craft brewed beer and a cigar for $6. This was back in the day in Maryland when you could actually smoke IN a bar! Anyway, they offered Perdomo Fresco as part of the special and I was convinced that this could be an every day smoke, as others has said. The bundles are afordable - I prefer the maduro.”

“I just smoked my first Perdomo Fresco, Churchill size with a Connecticut wrapper. This, in my opinion, is a terrific every day smoke. It burns great with a consistently great taste with just the amount of bite that I like. I have definitely become an avid smoker of this cigar. It not only is priced right , but also tastes great. I will be ordering a bundle.”
