The cigar has a very smooth beginning and it is showing some terrific flavors. There is a nice sugary creaminess to the cigar, and there are some nutty and bread notes present with that.There are some cedar notes present with the core flavor profile, and it has a finish that shows light coffee beans and spices. It is a full body cigar in terms of flavors, but the strength level overall is at a solid medium body level. I believe it to be a cigar many smokers could smoke, but a cigar that an experienced smoker could truly enjoy. The construction on the cigar is simply top notch, and it is producing a lovely burn line on the end with a solid gray ash. There is a cool draw through the first third and it has an enjoyable and easy finish.
In the final third of the cigar I am seeing a flavor profile that is very similar to that of the second third and is finishing wonderfully. The cigar is made wonderfully and is showing nice balance, complexity, and full body qualities. The cigar has been providing a constant medium body strength level, and I am finding this to be a terrific afternoon smoke. The flavors of cream, sugar, nuts, and toast are remaining very present in this third, and I am also picking up some solid dry fruit notes with that. Along with those terrific core flavors, there is a finish of coffee, cocoa, and spices. From beginning to end the construction on this cigar has been terrific and it has produced a great burn line with a firm ash. The last draw on the cigar is smooth, fairly cool, and flavorful, and left me wanting another Perdition right away.
I have not smoked the other vitolas in the line, but it is safe to say that the Perdition is a great release. I know that these have been out for sometime but it is just recently that I got the opportunity to get my hands on them, and I am glad I did. There is a great flavor profile to these cigars and while it may come off as another La Aurora, it had its own personality. There are times where you see trends with cigars coming out of factories, but this cigar did not show that. I felt that it offered a nice Cubanesque quality to it, and at the same time provide a solid medium strength level cigar that had tons of flavors. I look for cigars with these qualities and that is why I smoke a lot of CyB, Epernay, Black Label, Merlion, L'Atalier, Namakubi, Davidoff Millenium Blend, etc. As I said earlier, a lot of smokers could smoke this cigar, but only a certain number could pick up all of its qualities.I found this cigar to be a terrific smoke and that is why I am giving it a solid 91. You all should at least get your hands on a five pack of these sticks.
