Finding a good cigar at a decent price is like finding a decent movie in the bargain bin at your local department store. It’s hard, but not impossible, and Perdomo proves that with their Lot 23 line of cigars.
A ‘cheap’ cigar is a nice thing to have on hand for a number of reasons, even if you don’t think you’re going to smoke them or smoke them often. You can give them out to friends who don’t tend to smoke an entire cigar (why waste an expensive cigar on someone who can’t smoke more than a third of it?). You can smoke them to make your better cigars last a little longer while still getting the calming respite of an enjoyable cigar. You can even smoke them while you're doing yard work so that if something goes wrong, you didn’t just drop a high-end or hard-to-find cigar in the mud.
The Perdomo Lot 23 Natural Toro is made in Nicaragua, utilizing tobacco grown entirely in Nicaragua. The tobacco, and the cigar itself, are made in Esteli, Nicaragua, and they are a medium-full flavored cigar with hints of cream, wood, nuts, and a peppery finish. A great cigar, and for the price that they’re offered at, truly one of the better deals that you can get from Perdomo, and from any cigar maker out there. If you’re looking for an affordable cigar and you like what Perdomo generally makes, then you will find that these are some of the best cigars in their price range online or offline, whether you’re going to smoke at home or in a lounge with friends.
