I am blown away by this cigar. It is AMAZING. I have been smoking cigars for about 15 years and I finally can say this is the BEST I have smoked.
After reviewing the Perdomo Lot 23 Toro for the second time, the cigar has improved, with a little extra time spent in the humidor. The Lot 23, now burns with a clean white ash, and easily supports a one inch ash. In the first half of the burn, notes of wood were present in the nose, and on the pallet. On the second half of the burn, notes of spice and pepper were present in the nose. The burn time for this Toro, was approximately 60 minuets. Due to its inconsistency, I can not rate this cigar again.
I got them today and tried one tasted good. I liked the flavor but I'm letting them acclimate in my humidor should mellow out flavor. Just such a large cigar it takes all day to smoke. I would recommend this cigar.
The Perdomos have produced a fine smoke with the Maduro Churchill Lot 23. Virtual clouds of aromatic smoke, and good draw with flavors of chocolate, coffee, straw and leather. Scored a box at auction for a fantastic price, and this has to be one of the best deals I have ever made on the auction site. Over an hour of smoking pleasure. I'll horde the ones I have left, for the more 'special' times. I don't believe one could go wrong here, as it seems the Perdomo Father/Son team have outdone themselves with this one. Try it - you'll like it.
Lovely flavour for a good price.
Bought a 5 pack on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Smooth classic creamy Maduro taste, great construction. Was down to one in the box and just had to get more. A must have for Maduro fans!
can't beat the price. Taste great and a smooth burn.
If you like medimum body smokes this is one you have to try. Good burn and draw. Great all day smoke
now i know why anise isn't advertised much as a taste found while smoking. it ruins an otherwise perfect cigar with an acrid taste that destroys any previous pleasures encountered. lot 23 descriptions don't identify this taste but should. anis is an acquired taste that i can see many people won't get, especially me. save your money if anis isn't for you.
I knew this cigar had to be good and of course it is outstanding. I have already smoked both 5 packs I won from auction along with most of the other gems I purchased. I have found that Perdomo is very consistent in the overall quality of their product. From construction to ease of draw to flavor, any and all Perdomo cigars that I've purchased has been nearly flawless. A winner every time.
