From this year’s IPCPR show in Vegas, Perdomo resurrected their Cameroon Reserve line as the Limited Cameroon Edition, bearing the old Reserve band, in a single initial release size, a 4.75″x44rg petite corona; yielding a high grade Cameroon capa, and proprietary Nicaraguan binder and fillers.


The finely toothed capa tastes of caramel, espresso beans, hickory, mahogany, persimmons, sea salt, tarragon, and white chocolate; and smells of alum, caramel, toasted challah, and white chocolate.

From the toasted foot smells of anise, 60% cacao, challah, ginger root, mocha, orange zests, and sugar cane.

Off of the lit draw comes hints of anise, caramel, challah, cocoa, cumin, dill, dried fennel, hickory, nutmeg, saffron, sea salt, white chocolate, and white peppercorns; across the nose, the smoke smells sweetly of caramel, cocoa, espresso beans, persimmons, and sugar beets.

A half inch in at the ten minute mark post-lighting, is the ligero cone, the ash is salt & pepper in complexion; the smoke is chalk white in color.

The body hints shift towards, cumin, dill, fresh fennel, mesquite, oak, paprika, tarragon, and white peppercorns. The body ranges from mild-full, and the strength is dead medium.

These are brilliant cigars, and the vitola itself truly brings out everything the blend has to offer; suffice to say I’ll be buying several boxes of these in the near future. Nick has a true winner here, even more so than the Noir.

Purchased from Davidus Cigars on Rockville Pike 20852, on July 23rd for 5.35$ before sales tax (6%).
