Perdomo Lot 23 Natural Robusto

Today we have a blend from Tabacalera Perdomo.  Perdomo’s Lot 23 is a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli.  What is unique about this blend is that the filler and binder tobaccos are all harvested form the same farm known as Lot 23.  The tobaccos from this farm were harvested and aged for four years before being rolled with a dark Ecuadorian Connecticut-shade wrapper and then aged for another six months in Perdomo’s Miami facility.  Perdomo Cigars are kind of an enigma for me.  Some I love, some are just ok.  Let’s see how this Lot 23 does.

In other news, there is a lot going on here at Nice Tight Ash.  Be sure to check out our 100th review which is the CAO Escaparate Costa Rican Maduro and see how you can win a box of Corona Cigar Co. 10th Anniversary Nicaraguans.  Also our September contest sponsored by is still ongoing.  Be sure to sign up to win a Gurkha Travel Kit.

Vitola: Robusto
Size: 5” x 50

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut-shade
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Price: ~$5.25/single or $88.95/box of 20

Great review!

I dont think I ever had one of these, but I keep telling myself to try one :) After your review, I might just have to kick myself in the ass and make me get a couple.


kinda have a Max Headroom deal going on at a couple places from about a minute left :)

I need to fire one of these up again soon, it’s been a while since I’ve smoked one. Great review, thanks!

I have one o these in the wine-o-dor waiting for me, I’ll hav to smoke it later and try to figure out that “mystery” flavor that reminds you of that snuff, great review.

Great Job, again, Brian. Wait is that a Ravens hat your wearing. The kick my Jets @ss in that preseason game.
Where was I, oh I really like the work you guys do.

Thanks guys. Yea Mike, I lost a few frames there didn’t I LOL. Damn technology!

Nice review. I have had some good Perdomos and some that I really didnt like, even had one split on me. Ill give this Lot 23 a shot and see if Perdomo can work its way into my humidor. Yeaaaah….snuff is disgusting! Go Packers!

Brian’s reviews are better than most others out there.

Thanks Brett! just hope it’s some entertainment and somewhat informative for people. Even if it is only for a short time.

I just had the Lot 23 Maduro and would have to agree with Brain’s tasting notes. Maybe just add in a touch of maduro sweetness. Overall good smoke at a great price.

I’ve had the Lot 23 natural, and I found it just a touch harsh for my tastes. But not enough that I don’t look forward to trying the maduro and see if your thoughts are on target.
