Instead of a Connecticut-seed leaf, Perdomo selected a beautiful Broadleaf Maduro, one glistening with oils and toothy in texture. The result is a rich, almost chocolatey flavor that's smooth and gradual, complementing the creamy, peanuty nuances from the long-fillers inside quite nicely.
Lot 23 refers to a plot of virgin land discovered by Nick Perdomo and his father in Nicaragua, where they decided to plant a crop of Criollo and Corojo '98 tobacco in the year 2000. The yield from this special planting was then cured, aged and turned into the blend for this special cigar. The Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro features 5-year aged higher-priming Cuban-seed Nicaraguan Maduro wrappers that add a rich sweetness to the robust 5-year aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro has complex flavors and outstanding aromas with hints of mocha and spice on the finish.
