Quick Smoke: Perdomo Lot 23 Robusto

1 Mar 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Perdomo Lot 23 Robusto

Last April, George E found the Toro in this line to have excellent construction but little flavor. The five inch by 50 ring gauge Robusto isn’t much different. It starts out with a warm tobacco taste and some clove spice, but that fades into hardly any flavor at all. The physical properties are very impressive, especially for a sub-$5 stick. All the same, this has got to be the mildest cigar produced in Estelí – perhaps too mild.

Verdict = Hold.

    I would agree that this stick doesn't pack much of a punch but I find it to be a good bargain and definitely suitable for newbies or as a morning smoke with coffee for those with more developed palates.

    I love these with a morning coffee. Of course I'm only paying $3.50 so that might have something to do with it. 🙂 Have you tried the maduro yet? They are pretty good. I'll have to try them again, when I reviewed the Lot 23 Connecticut I thought it did creep into the medium range.

    Lighten up and remember when. Good stick, great price, flavor tails off but it's still a great smoke. Very impressive for this date and time.

    Just smoked one of these tonite. Came in a sampler pack I got from an Internet Retailer. The cigar burned perfectly up till the last 2.5"; just slight overburn on one side that didn't need any attention. I only had to light it once. It was creamy about 1/2 way through and overall tasted earthy with hints of nuts and coffee. I would definately buy these to keep in the humi for grass cutting, hot tubbing or just with beer after dinner! Wonder if they make one in Maduro?
