Perdomo Edicion de Silvio, the creme de la creme of Perdomo cigars.
When it comes to superior super-premiums, Perdomo Edicion de Silvio is as good as it gets. Only the Perdomo family's finest tobaccos are used to create each Edicion de Silvio cigar. Extensively aged tobaccos from the best crops, carefully evaluated and hand-selected - painstaking, one leaf at a time - then expertly fermented and aged further in 50-year old oak casks to prime these tobaccos for limited production of the best Perdomo money can buy....let alone one of the best handmades in the industry.
Edicion de Silvio is a luxurious handmade. A second-to-none creation from Tabacalera Perdomo. The epitome of top-tier quality, perfected and maintained by just five of Perdomo's highest level rollers. Each Edicion de Silvio cigar is comprised of the finest Cuban-seed tobaccos grown throughout the family's proprietary farms in Nicaragua. Lush, flavorful tobaccos spawned from these fertile, volcanic valleys and selected from the viso, seco, and ligero primings. Precision blending of these rare leaves produces a rich and eventful bouquet that's medium to full in body, yet elegant, and hits the palate in smooth, velvety fashion. Then, the icing on the cake: your choice of either creamy Grade A Connecticut wrappers from Ecuador or oily Nicaraguan Sun-Grown Broadleaf maduro wrappers. The Connecticut is softer on the palate, issuing a rich and creamy series of coffee, sweet tobacco, and cedar with a long finish. The Maduro is richer in flavor, dishing out layers of rich, almost chocolatey flavors with roasted espresso and oak. Delicious, no matter which path you take.
A good cigar, with aged tobacco taste and smoothness, although much milder than I expected, with a pronounced chocolate taste. I think the Perdomo 20th Anniversary is just as good and half the price, though, and bolder.
