When the new millennium rolled around, Nick Perdomo was looking to do a bit of experimenting with growing tobacco in Nicaragua. He chose a specific lot, a specific bit of land in which he could grow this tobacco, and it would come to be more well known as Lot 23 (thus the name of the cigars).
The tobaccos that he grew there in the soils of Nicaragua were well cared-for, taken care of as you would any other cigar tobacco, and then fermented. When he went to blend the tobacco with other tobaccos, he found out that the tobacco he had grown was a bit interesting; it didn’t like to play well with foreign tobaccos, to be sure. However, when the tobacco was blended with other tobaccos from the lot, they came out quite nicely, and so the name (and the blend) was born.
The Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro Toro is a fantastic cigar with a medium body to it. The cigar begins with a Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, into which the tobacco blended from Lot 23 is placed. After being deftly rolled, this leaves you with a Perdomo cigar that is fantastic, with notes of pepper, almonds, and rich espresso, and an oily wrapper that lends itself to thick bluish plumes of smoke.
One of the best things about the Lot 23, though, may be the price. Because it started as an experiment, the price is lower than most cigars, in the ‘bargain’ range. If you’re shopping for cigars online or you’re looking at stores in person, you’ll find that they remain very affordable, making them a great ‘everyday’ cigar, or even a good yard cigar. Definitely worth a smoke!
