I’ve had the Perdomo Lot 23, but I had never had the Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro. And I have to say that I liked it even more than the original. I’m a bit of a full bodied cigar connoisseur, so I quite enjoyed this stogie. The Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro is a medium to strong cigar, but very smooth. I’m not sure how they did it, but this cigar is full of flavor and spices, but since it is so darn smooth, it’s not as strong as you think it should be.
My brother in law gave me a pack of 4 cigars, all 4 different kinds of Maduros, for my birthday. And this was the one I decided to smoke first and it sure was a great choice. It was the perfect cigar after a belly full of grilled pork chops, greens, pasta salad, potato salad, fresh cucumbers and onions, and the best raspberry cheese cake you could ever eat. I ended up smoking the Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro with my other brother in law as we strolled along my father in law’s garden, trash talking about fantasy football, college football and talking about the stock market, economy and other investment strategies. We finished off our cigars sitting under a shaded tree, my preferred method of smoking fine cigars.
It was a good long smoke and it lasted for a good while of topics that we discussed. He smoked a different cigar of his own and the Lot 23 that I was smoking burned longer than his. Which, I didn’t mind at all. I’d much rather be the guy with a cigar still rolling than the guy without, any day of the week.
From start to finish the Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro was perfect. You get a bit of sweetness and spice in the taste, aroma, and retro. Great draw and the Lot 23 label is probably my favorite label out there. The label has a pretty cool story behind it as well. If you don’t know it. In 2000, Nick Perdomo and his son planted an experimental crop on a virgin field, which they called Lot 23. Where, they ended up creating a special blend of 5-year aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos and boom, we now get to enjoy all the fantastic varieties of the Lot 23.
I don’t have one bad thing to say about this cigar, but like I said before, I like medium to strong cigars. If you’re not a full bodied cigar kinda guy, then this stogie isn’t for you, but if you do, you better add this to your list.
