I've finally come across one.

A cigar that I can't seem to like, besides Acids.
Perdomo Champagne.

I've tried to like this cigar, but it always seems harsh and bitter.
I saw it on the Daily Deal and thought I would pull one from the humi and give it another shot.

Well, I tried.

    How long have they been in the humi? My dad has some with over a year on them and they are a completely different cigar than ROTT.

    They've been there for quite some time, so probably the problem.

    Try the larger torpedo and super toro sizes with some age. Really enjoy them. The epicure and figurado sizes I've had also were harsh.

    Funny, that's my favorite Perdomo. 

    I've tried several, not all, but nothing stood out from any of the Perdomo lines except this.  Oh, well, in a bad way of standing out, I can't stand the Lot 49's or whatever they are(apologies to Thomas Pynchon for associating his writing with these smokes, it's what sticks in my mind.)
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I've tried several different Perdomos (all BOTL gifts) and none has ever stood out to me in any way.

    The champagne was not the worst perdomo I've had, I have a couple sitting in the humidor from somewhere.

    I do think the larger rg's tend to be smoother. The champagne's have that bitter connecticut flavor to me though.

    I think this is what I love about cigars.
    The different tastes on cigars and what folks like.
    I find it interesting to see that there is such a wide variety of tastes between folks.

    Kind of amazing, isn't it?  I have thought of the Champagne as a cigar that almost everyone would like, no matter their preference.  they're OK, to me, not great but I get them every once in a while.  Too big RG for me, but OK connecticut.

    Right with ya, Amos. The Champagnes I've smoked were about as non-offensive as it gets...light, smooth and easy. The price was the only turn-off even that wasn't awful.
