Review Notes: To me March 1st is the start of the cigar smoking season. I've had my eye on the Lot 23 Churchill to be my opening day smoke. I had it about 4 months and it's just been lounging in my humidor tempting me. Well I had high expectations and wonder of wonders I was not disappointed. The two black dogs and I enjoyed it's aroma (even the new dog) as we hiked through the still frozen West Virginia Mountains. The taste was just what was advertised, earthy with hints of chocolate and cream. In fact it reminded me of smoking chocolate milk (yes way!), and this was not the maduro. The burn was good, though in the breezy conditions it started to canoe, but eventually corrected itself. I'm not saying this is a top ten or even a top twenty tasting cigar, but it well above average in that category. It also is a fine looker, I especially liked the band, which is a little more detailed than most Perdomos, but it fit this cigar perfectly as the details matched the color of the wrapper. If all that wasn't enough I got a five-pack for 3 bucks apiece on c-bid. I say give the Lot 23 a chance and most of you won't be disappointed.
