It’s been sometime since we’ve visited the Perdomo Lot 23. With two new sizes (Gordito and Punta Gorda) being released at IPCPR this year, I figured it was time to revisit the blend but in the new Gordito size.
Video review runs around 8 minutes. The bad news is I’m not a fan of big ring gauge cigars. Maybe 2 or 3 years ago the Perdomo Lot 23 Gordito size would’ve been exciting but the size just doesn’t work in 2011. The good news is that the Perdomo Lot 23 lines (Natural and Maduro) are possibly one of the most underrated cigar lines out there. The creamy, toasty and woodsy flavor profile are easy and enjoyable for both the seasoned veterans and the beginners out there. Add to it the wallet friendly price of the Perdomo Lot 23 and you have a winning combination.
My challenge to Perdomo is to step into the now and lets see how the Lot 23 blend performs in a smaller ring gauge format like a Lonsdale or Corona Extra.
