Perdomo Lot 23 (robusto)- Quickie

I got tired of looking at it. The plain jane cigar amongst all the cool kids in the humidor playground. Dressed in a drab colored band lacking more regal adornments, it was begging for a chance to prove itself. I decided today was the day to put it out of it's misery. Not expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised by it's rich flavor and smooth medium body. There was actually some complexity beneath it's "paperbag" colored wrapper. Initial woodiness turned into a "minty" cafe au lait with nice touches of spicy cinnamon and vanilla. I could almost forgive it's "tunneling" burn line. The final third was equally tasty with rich leather and roasted nuts on the palate. My ever lasting lesson: Don't be a cigar snob.

Purchased a Toro today at a local Cigar lounge. Retailing at $5.00 I was pleasently suprised at the burn and wonderful flavors. In my opinion a great find. I highly recomend this to anyone who likes to sit and truly enjoy one's self.
