Perdomo Lot 23 refers to a field of special tobaccos cultivated in 2000 when Nick Perdomo planted an experimental crop on virgin land in Nicaragua, which he dubbed Lot 23. This field produced a very small crop of tobaccos. Six years later they were carefully blended to create a unique 100% Nicaraguan puro. An innovator and master blender, Nick Perdomo selected a beautiful Connecticut-seed leaf—glistening with oils and caramel-brown—from the 5th and 6th priming to wrap the special tobaccos of Lot 23. We were impressed by the draw, especially through the small opening we made, which speaks volumes about the construction of the Lot 23. You're in for a super-smooth, mild to medium-bodied smoking experience brimming with enjoyable, super-smooth, and creamy hints of espresso and nuts. Pair this Cigar Aficionado 90-rated cigar with a White Russian.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
