“Once the burn of this tapered little perfecto evens out, big notes of toasted almond, spice and wood envelop the palate, along with hints of caramel and coffee. The finish resonates with chocolate and vanilla.”
About the Cigar:
A rich, African Cameroon wrapper over vintage Dominican filler give way to flavors both complex and refined. The slightly sweet flavor produced by the select African Cameroon wrapper is in perfect balance with the savory aroma. Flawless construction, a hallmark of Tabacalera A. Fuente, ensures an even burn and smooth draw, unquestionably among the world’s most elite cigars.
“My grandfather made Perfecto cigars; they were very popular during the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. When I was growing up we made perfectos by hand, but as time went by there were fewer and fewer cigar makers rolling perfectos. As the cigar makers grew older, they retired, they passed away. It took a real master to make a true Perfecto cigar.”
– Carlos Fuente Jr.
As a child I was fascinated with that shape and the really difficult art of the craft that the Perfecto cigar represents. So when we first came to the Dominican Republic in 1980, I thought we should start making those shapes again. At that time nobody was making shaped cigars. I wanted to bring back that old world style, just to keep the art, the tradition, the craft, alive.
Today we make an entire line of Perfecto cigars. These cigars are something special for our fellow cigar smokers to enjoy.
