Hi, this is Brian with Best Cigar Prices, and today I’m reviewing the Amber by Perdomo. The Amber is one of three of the Special Craft Series cigars blended to be paired with beer.
The Amber is a Nicaraguan puro with a medium body. It features a sun grown Jalapa Valley wrapper, binder from Condega, and fillers from EstelÌ.
Before lighting, the cold draw and aromas held nuts, earth, dried fruit, and spiced meat. The cigar started off strong with white pepper, raw lumber, vegetal, earth, vanilla cream, chocolate, and even watermelon candy-like sweetness. After the initial fireworks died down, it settled into a sweet wood and creamy earth finish similar to the Pilsner blend.
This cigar is meant to be paired with ambers, pale ales, lagers, IPAs, and Oktoberfests. Because of the medium body and subtle flavor of the cigar, I wouldn’t recommend pairing it with the hoppiest of beers.
With the rising popularity of craft brewing, Perdomo is showing in this series that they definitely have their finger on the pulse, and this was my personal favorite out of the three.
