Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir was added to Perdomo's Champagne Series in 2011, boasting a more robust and flavor-packed experience than its Connecticut-wrapped predecessor.
Like the original Champagne cigar, the Noir features triple-fermented tobaccos, incorporating a similar binder/filler blend of Nicaraguan leaves throughout. But the two cigars begin to take quite different paths when the wrapper leaf is applied. For Perdomo Reserve Champagne Noir, the wrapper leaves (Nicaraguan Cuban-seed Maduro) are heavily fermented for over 14 months; after the initial fermentation, the leaves undergo yet another step, being aged in oak bourbon barrels for an additional six months!
With a similar core recipe, the Noir offers the same creamy and refreshing texture that the Champagne is known for. Enthusiasts can expect a more intense flavor and body output (roughly medium to medium-plus), showing deep nuances of baker's cocoa, charred oak, dark-roasted coffee, hickory, and a sweet, malty, bourbon-like buzz through the nostrils.
