Colón grand vintage 2001 double perfecto

This double perfecto from Panama looks fantastic, a dark oily wrapper and it’s strange shape with 2 closed ends. You light the fire-end without cutting it. That makes the draw hard to start with, but as soon as the cigar burst open at the fire end the draw is getting much better.

The flavor is very much a flavor which I haven’t tasted in any other cigar, maybe because it’s my first cigar from Panama. I can taste cedar wood with a little sweetness but some pepper on the tongue. After about one and a half centimeter a distinct vanilla appears and soon disappears again. Halfway the cigar I tasted some citrus and later on some hay. At the end there is chocolate and the final blow is a combined chocolate with hay.

Would I buy this cigar again? I liked it, but with a price of 43,50 euro, don’t think so.

    Hi there,

    We are finalizing the conception and import of a new Panamanian rum in the EU and especially France. 8 and 12 years old rum for now. We are looking for cigars from Panama to propose specific pairing to connoisseurs.

    Could you advise some models that could suit well from your experience ?

    Thank you,

    • The only cigars I know from Panama are these Colon cigars, Joya de Panama and there is a cheap bundle of which I can’t recall the name at the moment. Colon is owned by a German company as far as I know, Darier & Cleef, this is their website just shoot owner Alexander a mail:

    • Oh just read my old reviews, the bundle I Marca Fina and I completely forgot about Cruzero de Panama, that brand is also owned by Darier & Cleef if I’m not mistaken. If not owned than at least represented/imported by Darier & Cleef.
