Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne

The inspiration for this review came from a small cigar shop that I work at part-time. The Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne is probably one of the top selling cigars in this shop and it’s sold to a number of customers who prefer a wide variety of flavor profiles and experience levels. Now I’d smoked these cigars before, but I decided to give it another shot now realizing that it seemed to appeal to such a variety of cigar smokers.

Name: Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne
Company: Perdomo
Wrapper: 6 year old Connecticut Shade
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Price: $6.00
Comes in: Box of 25
Vitola: Epicure (6″ x 54) Toro

Pre-Light

First thing that catches my eye with this cigar is the golden cellophane it comes wrapped in, which is something I can’t ever remember seeing in other cigars. Once removed from the cello I began examining the light tan wrapper which was nearly absent of any veins. The cigar was uniform in density from foot to head which allowed me to assume that this sample was constructed well. As is my experience with many Connecticut Shade wrappers, this wrapper was thin and fragile. This is not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just something I try to remain mind full of as I handle the cigar. Finally I began smelling the cigar, which to me was just a typical light tobacco aroma.

Smoke, Flavor and Burn

As I began setting fire to the foot of my Perdomo Champagned I first realize the great smooth draw. The draw produced abundant amounts of light white smoke which quickly drifted to the sky. Initially there was a hint of spice from this cigar which seemed to hit me right on the tip of the tongue. After a few draws that spice was quickly joined by a mesh of flavors that included nuts, hay and toast. The cigar burned evenly and slowly leaving a firm light gray ash in its wake.

As I got deeper inot the cigar, around the midpoint, I began to notice a signifacant mellowing of the cigar. The hints of spice that once jazzed up the cigar had gone away leaving a mix of hay and nut flavors. This smoke was creamy but left a slight dry feeling on my palate. Now the most impressive thing about this cigar was the ash. I never ashed the cigar. Past the halfway point of this six inch cigar, somewehere around the band the first ash finally fell off into my ashtray. This left a log of ash sitting on top of a mound of ashes. The cigar finished much the way it began, with the exception of the spice which had compeltely left.

Final Thoughts

After smoking a few more of the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne I can see why they are such a popular stick among the folks that frequent the small shop I work in. This cigar is mild, however, it yields inviting flavors that I think most cigar smokers can appreciate. Also, the construction of this cigar is really top notch. It’s not every day that over half of a toro can be smoked before the first ash falls.

I personally think that just about anyone can find something to like about the Perdomo Champagne. It might not be the powerhouse that you prefer, but it’s smooth creamy character would be perfect with a morning cup of coffe. This cigar is worth buying a 5 pack, and possibly worth a box purchase for someone that enjoys milder cigars.

As always I’d like to hear your thoughts.

Good review!

I think the Champagne is one of my favorite breakfast smokes. It’s also one that I like handing out to new cigar smokers.

I haven’t tried this one yet, but don’t doubt it is good. You should try the 10th Anniversary Criollo. While I am not a huge Perdomo fan, that cigar is pretty darn good. Thanks for a great review

Awesome Review!

I like the 10th Anniversary Champagne! Like you said fairly mild and really well constructed. I have had a few of them when I can pick them up at my local B&M…..they seem to go pretty fast.

I have to agree – the Champagne overall, and especially the 10th Anniversary, are in my Top 10 cigars! Great review!

This is a great cigar, mild yet great flavor. Your right on about the construction too. They sell a ton of these at my local B&M.

Just smoked my first Champagne. As other folks remarked, I got the impression this was a fine any time cigar. I smoked it outside, under my porch, on a cool late winter morning. I paired it with a cup of coffee and found the flavor combo excellent. I recommend the smoke to affecionados of all levels of experience. The large amount of creamy smoke and subtle spice made it one of my new favorites. I will definitely pick up some more. Best regards.

Thanks a ton for your time and efforts to have decided to put these things together on this website. John and that i very much prized your ideas through the articles over certain things. I am aware that you have numerous demands on program hence the fact that you actually took equally as much time as you did to steer people really like us by this article is actually highly treasured.

Thanks for writing great and interesting content on the subject, I will be back and already bookmarked your site. Just wanted to know as anyone tried this one TV on PC Software it’s called Digital TV on PC. Apparently they have quality local and Cable TV Channels. Plus on Demand TV. Some companies that offer Live TV On PC offer a lot of channels outside of the USA ,so your not getting quality channels. Not sure if I should get this one, let me know if you can, Thanks.
