Right around this time last year, the word was spreading about all of the new lines coming out of IPCPR 2008 in Las Vegas. One of the brands getting a bit of buzz was the Perdomo Patriarch. While none of us were able to get our hands on a sample, Brian did manage to get his hands on one after he got back home.
Ever since that review I have had the desire to check out the cigar. I was a big fan of the Perdomo Habano line and rumor had it that the Patriarch was much more refined and flavorful. As time passed, the cigar slowly slipped my mind and I no longer thought to look for them when I visited a new cigar shop.
This year while attending IPCPR 2009 in New Orleans, we had much better luck getting sampled from Perdomo. In fact, Jerry, Brian, and I were given a product tour with Christopher Harper (National Director of Sales). One of those samples included that very same Perdomo Patriarch Corojo that I was interested in trying the year before.
That cigar is the one I have for you today in Short Ashes format. The video runs about fourteen minutes long and touches one several aspects of the cigar.
