Take the top-selling Perdomo Champagne cigar, add a maduro-wrapped variety into the mix, and the results are spectacular. More than spectacular.
The Perdomo Champagne Noir cigar utilizes a triple-fermented, Cuban-seed Nicaraguan maduro wrapper that's been aged for nearly 2 years - much of that time spent in Bourbon barrels. Inside is a rich and well-aged blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The result is a full-flavored, but very well-balanced smoke that's layered with notes of coffee, cocoa, sweet cedar, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and highly enjoyable.
“Great stick! this is one of the best new smokes this year. Bold flavor with a mid -full body that changes as you smoke. Smooth and satisfing from first puff to the nub.”DG of Hiram, GA
“Smoking this cigar is somewhat akin to a religious experience.”JB of Bemidji, MN
“I'm a huge fan of the champagne series, so I was anxious to give these a try. What a great smoke! Smooth, flavorful, slow burning and tons of aromatic smoke for maximum enjoyment. Settle in for the long haul 'cause these stogies go on and on and only get better as they burn down. I've found a new favorite..”BS of Murfreesboro, TN
“Normally I prefer lighter wrappers, & I'm a HUGE fan of the Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne. I was skeptical when I saw the Champagne Reserve Noir on CI, but since I'm also a big fan of everything Nick Perdomo rolls, I figured what the heck - it'll at least be good, but surely there's no way to top the 10th Anniversary Champagne. OH . . . MY . . . GOD!!! Could NOT have been more wrong! This cigar is simply incredible! As smooth as the 10th Anniversary Champagne, but with deeper richer flavors right from the start. And of course, it only gets better the longer you smoke it. But that's the beauty of these: they are super slow burning, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy them. If they weren't so amazing, you'd almost be sick if them by the time you were done - almost. The only downside: the monstrous Super Toro, at 6" x 60 lasted nearly 3 hours, so be sure you have plenty of time to enjoy these beauties, cuz you WON'T want to put it out once you light it.”RG of Greenbrier, TN
“This is the best cigar I've smoked all year period. And, it's the only 60 RG cigar I've ever really enjoyed. Excellent draw, perfect draw, and the construction is flawless. Notes of oak, coffee, and the sweetness that comes from perfectly fermented tobacco. Medium to full to start, and ends up a full bodied full strength cigar. If you smoke cigars you owe it to yourself to try this.”LM of Porterville, CA
“There's not much I can add to what's been said. The original Champagne was my all around favorite cigar. When you also factor in price, it was pretty damn hard to beat. I've sampled RP's, Montecristo, Padron, Cohiba, Tatuaje, Arturo Fuente, you name it. All of those are great...but the Noir is cheaper and every bit as good and in my humble opinion, better. All the smoothness, creaminess, and thick plumes of the original champagne, but with bolder flavors. The addition of a more coffee/chocolate like profile over Champagnes flavors is what puts it over the edge. Fantastic cigar for a blockbuster price of about $6 per stick. Insane.”FR of Las Vegas, NV
“I enjoy a great many fine cigars. Perdomos, of many varieties, are constantly in one of my humidors.”CB of Savannah, GA
“Great smoke. I've smoked both the robusto and churchill and both are winners.”DM of WASHINGTON, DC
“Excellent smoke. This cigar is smooth and long lasting. I tried the 5 pak and within days ordered more.”DB of MALTA, NY
“The Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir is a wonderful creation. The flavor reminds me of a brownies...oily cream, cocoa, chocolate, etc. The burn is razor sharp and yields lots of dense smoke. The finish is light and elegant. This stick has earned a spot in my personal top 10. Nick Perdomo is the man! ”AG of Greensboro, NC
“Smoked this at my local shop. Got it in a 4 pack travel humidor sampler. It wasn't a bad cigar, I've had worse. However, it's not impressive by any means. It's a mild-medium-mild-medium shift mostly. not a lot of diversity in the flavor profile, there's some complexity but it's weak! Basically a really toned down and thick. Probably won't buy this again but worth a try if you're curious. 6.5/10 over all. Well rolled, beautiful wrapper, great draw. Flavor is lacking and same goes for texture.”MS of Lawrenceville, GA
“WoW! I'm not one for writing reviews, however, as I sit on my deck this beautiful spring evening with a Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir and a some Rye whiskey - WoW! 1/2 inch gray-white ash, chocolate, fruit and pepper on the tongue kids playing in the yard, wife reading a book. This has got to be heaven!”TC of WOOLWICH TWP, NJ
“Thoroughly enjoyable.... Rich flavors, full & every bit as refined. My favorite maduro! The Figurado (4.7"x56) is a great value too.”GA of MOUNT BETHEL, PA
“Absolutely a great cigar with a smoothness that does not make sense at this price. I will order more of these sexy smooth cigars, thank you CI and PERDOMO!”CP of Ancaster, ON
