A great cigar company is a cigar company that is willing to take risks, one that is willing to experiment, one that is willing to do a lot of work to try and push the art of the cigar forward for everyone. And Perdomo was attempting to do that with their Lot 23 line. They were growing their own tobacco, experimenting with the seeds and what have you, and they ended up with a very interesting discovery. The tobacco from Lot 23, when aged, fermented, and blended with other tobaccos, was awful. When blended with the tobaccos from Lot 23, however, it was delicious, with a peppery taste and notes of earth.
So what could Perdomo do? They started by taking a natural wrapper, one grown in the Nicaraguan soil, and then you fill it with a blend of tobacco that comes from Lot 23, creating a cigar that is just wonderful while maintaining its affordability.
The consistency and quality of this cigar, paired with the affordability, is what makes Lot 23 such a great purchase for the cigar lover. Whether you find them online at an internet cigar shop or you find them in a brick and mortar tobacconist’s shop, you will be able to find them at a price that won’t break the bank, even when you’re buying a box of 24. Good cigar, good quality, and good price? It’s a hard deal to beat.
