It’s kind of a rainy day today and I need something to lighten the mood, I reach for the Perdomo ESV 1991 Regente. This is a robusto shape Conneticut shade beauty that has my name all over it. This looks like a mild cigar so I decided to pair it with a nice spiced rum and let them marry together. I’m in a pretty relaxed mood today so I figured this pairing would be perfect. The wrapper is almost flawless with hardly any visable veins. A silky smooth appearance with a nice looking band. It feels great in the hand, and a bit on the thicker side with a hefty 54 ring gauge. The Conneticut shade wrapper glistens in the light from the oils within. Prelight smells are of hay and cedar. This cigar burned excellent throughout as I would have predicted from the flawless wrapper. The draw was very clean with ample amounts of smoke with each puff. The ash did tend to flake and break off easily though which I generally do not like. I got a few different flavors from this cigar ranging from cream and nuts. It did have a very smooth finish which was nice and went well with a toasty edge. It stayed pretty mild throughout and didn’t change much at all. Not a very complex smoke in my opinion. Overall this wasn’t a bad smoke, just nothing I would have on a daily basis. Especially in this price range, there are better options out there.
