Perdomo Lot 23 Connecticut borrows from the winemaker's playbook, focusing in on a singular lot of land for the cigar's core recipe. The project came about in the year 2000, as the Perdomos' operation was growing at a significant pace following the great cigar boom of the '90s. The family made the decision to begin growing their own tobacco in Nicaragua and never looked back! Logically, the cigar's name ties into the family's Lot 23 plot of land in Estelí, now regarded as one of the most imperative lots of land within the Perdomo arsenal.
With Lot 23 Connecticut, the cigars make use of five-year-aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos throughout the binder and filler recipe. This pure-bread concoction is then wrapped in a stunning Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf that is harvested from higher portions of the tobacco plant than is conventionally seen. This makes for a richer overall profile than the average Connecticut yet still maintaining an incredibly smooth character, including highlight nuances of creamed coffee, buttered nuts, clean cedar, and loads of floral honey.
