Perdomo Lot 23 Reviews
The 90+ rating for this cigar is insane, that said the extremely negative ratings are insane as well. This is a very good mild-to-medium cigar of excellent construction and consistantly good though not all that exciting flavor. It is a good lower cost cigar to stock the humidor with and is well worth the premium over the no-name el-cheapos from Famous and others. I always keep a box or two around.
Not much to say about this one. Its smokeable. Nothing close to a 90+ rating. I'd give it a 85 at most. I've had some cheap churchills for a few bucks less with a lot more flavor and a way better finish than this. It was a rather boring tobacco flavor all the way down to the last 2" where it got so harsh and gross I finally put it out. Will not buy again. It also went out on me a few times and I am not horridly sparing with my puffs. After the halfway mark it needs to be puffed a little too often to make it stay lit.
I ve been used to the Lot 23 Connecticut and gave this version a try. I found the construction and look pretty much the same with the wrapper a shade darker. The pre-light draw was good and the taste like that of leather. On light up, the leather flavour appeared and continued throughout to the nub - yes, I went to the nub and found no bitterness or negative after taste. This is a bit heavier than the lighter version and pleasant.
There s just something a little harsh in this smoke. It overwhelms the other flavors I Iove in a cigar: cedar, spice, caramel, leather.
Bought the best of Perdomo sampler and finished smoking this one and it was great. Great flavor burned well good construction. I was sad it ended. Will buy this one again.
I am biased toward Perdomo s, any of them. I recommend letting and Perdomo rest in your humidor 4-6 months. With that, you get a full creamy smoke and excellent burn. The Lot 23 Robusto is a go to cigar with spending a ton, highly recommended.
Beautiful presentation and construction. This isn't a cigar I'm going to award extra points for low cost. It's a solid cigar with great creamy tones, virtually no flavor changes, and a beautiful burn %26 draw. If you're looking for a bold, complex cigar, this is not the way to go. Mild, straight forward and a great smoke, even on an empty stomach. This is a stick I would always want on hand for a light mood. I am a fan.
Very mild and bland. Hardly any taste what so ever. A faint hint of earth and cream could be tasted but nothing more. No issues with burn or draw. If you like mild cigars it might be worth a shot but I would pass altogether.
This is a good cigar with a medium body - medium flavor. Its a good cigar to pick up on Cigar Monster if the deal is good enough. I would personally buy more of them if they were on there; however, I wouldn't pay full price for them.
I got this cigar in a 6 pack Perdomo sampler and it is wonderful. Great construction, burn, and draw. Very smooth, lots of smoke. Creamy. Not sweet, but great flavor. Will buy again!
There are a lot of nutty reviews for this cigar. It seems most folks have smoked one or two and think they know the cigar. I have smoked 7 boxes of the "natural" and I can attest to their consistent quality construction, appearance, burn, draw, and very tasty flavor. It is my golf cigar because of its consistency. I don't want a stick that I have to fiddle with during a round, either cleaning up a bad burn, loosening a bad draw, or distracting me with a varying taste. I've experience two sticks that I can remember that didn't burn and draw perfectly. And despite what a few reviewers have said, they NEVER get harsh in the final stages. I smoke every one until I can't hold it any longer with two fingertips. If they are well cared for, they will deliver.
