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 profile that's layered with notes of coffee, cocoa, sweet cedar, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and highly enjoyable. Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "Brownish-red in complexion this robusot offers plenty of roasted meat and rich woody flavors underscored by an earthy component with a slight anise finish."
Wow, one of the best I've ever smoked! Good quality rich smoke, easy draw, great flavor. I rarely buy by the box, but this will be an exception. Second favorite cigar after AB Prensado.
So I took a bit of a chance buying a 4 pack sampler of Perdomo Maduros.... But this Champagne Noir... This was an amazing cigar. Before lighting it there was that rich, distinct, semi-fruity smell of raisins. After the first few puffs it developed a creamy, vanilla/cocoa flavor with small hints of cedar and what I can only describe as an "Oatmeal Raisin Cookie" taste (minus the sweetness). My only regret is not having some Grappa to pair with it AND I wish I could have finished it. This cigar was so Nicotine-Heavy that I could only get a little more than halfway through it before becoming "nicotine drunk" as I call it. Awesome flavor, solid build, easy draw, even burn... it is amazing!
From the first puff of a Champagne original I knew Perdomo would be my favorite brand, after that I have to try them all. The noir is absolutely delicious, smooth, coco, earth, leather, a little spice? Its all there, flavor changes constantly and it never gets dull. Tastes a little Ashy towards the end but I guess thats the signal that your done. My favorite so far, But I have yet to try everything they offer.
Thoroughly enjoyable.... Rich flavors, full & every bit as refined. My favorite maduro! The Figurado (4.7"x56) is a great value too.
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!
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.
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!
Excellent smoke. This cigar is smooth and long lasting. I tried the 5 pak and within days ordered more.
Great smoke. I've smoked both the robusto and churchill and both are winners.
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!
I enjoy a great many fine cigars. Perdomos, of many varieties, are constantly in one of my humidors.
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.
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..
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.
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.
JB may have summed it up perfectly! Now allow me to elaborate: I'll start by saying that I'm a fan of pretty much everything by Perdomo, with the 10th Anniversary Reserve Champagne being my personal favorite, not just by Perdomo, but overall. When I saw the Reserve Champagne Noir, I was intrigued, even though I normally prefer cigars with lighter wrappers. DO NOT let the Medium-to-Full designation on this cigar fool you! I NEVER thought I'd find a cigar I liked more than the 10th Anniversary Champagne, but when I tried the Reserve Champagne Noir, I was simply blown away!!! Just as smooth and mild as the 10th Anniversary Champagne, but with just a little more flavor, and HUGE clouds of thick, rich smoke, as would be expected from any Perdomo cigar. Smooth, consistent, & even burning, you can really taste the bourbon from start to finish, but not so much that it's over-powering. If you like the 10th Anniversary Champagne, you'll absolutely LOVE the Noir. The only down-side is that the Super Toro, at 6" x 60, will last nearly 3 hours. Of course, it may well be the best 3 hours of your life - so if you can get a hold of one of these, make sure you have sufficient time to fully enjoy it, because cutting one of these beauties short should be a crime! The availability (or lack there-of) says it all. I have a new favorite to keep in my humidor - if only they would come off back-order.
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.
Smoking this cigar is somewhat akin to a religious experience.
