Quick Smoke: Perdomo Lot 23 Robusto

13 Mar 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

When I first tried this blend several years ago, I found it to be somewhat lacking in flavor. My tastes have changed—or, depending on your perspective, either developed or declined. I say that because, these days, I find myself turning to the Lot 23 Robusto time and again when I need a good coffee companion. Its mild-mannered, classic profile of cream, nut, and spice seems to pair perfectly with a hot cup of Joe in the morning or afternoon. And with solid construction and a price tag of only $4-5, this Perdomo is easy to enjoy and afford.

Verdict = Buy.

    They aren't a bad stick. Their construction is nearly flawless. The only issue I had was the flat flavor profile. But, like you've said in the past, everyones palate is different.

    It's nhas nothing to do with your tastes, it's just inconsistent products from Perdomo.

    my first experience with these years ago was similar to yours… i was unimpressed. while i prefer full bodied cigars in general, over time i have learned to appreciate the nuances of sticks with less power every so often. i might have to give these a new look. great review!
