Cumpay Lancero

Thin-to-win with this lancero! Packing lots of complexity, it'll really take your palate on a journey. Wonderful burn and draw; stacks of nickles. If we could all smoke in a bistro this would be the perfect stick. If you're a lancero fan, please consider picking up a box. It's got this reviewer's stamp of approval!

I'm a sucker for a Lancero and this one didn't disappoint. Nutty, buttery but not heavy, and very smooth. It was kind on on retro, no spice or no pepper.

As this stick opens up, a little spice (on the retro) as we approach the 2nd 1/3. A couple of burn issues with tunneling let it sit for a minute to see if it would catch up. (and it did, sometimes we just need to slow down and be patient) Maybe a slight graham cracker taste. Other notes honey roasted nutty flavor, some aspects of floral, and light pepper & spice.

Great spice (on the retro) as we slide into the final 1/3. Nutty and slight butter returns as the opening 1/3 gave us. Maybe some slight vanilla and black licorice. Now floral and detergent. So interesting. Medium body and great smoke texture.

Will Linger

To me, cigars are about having a deep curiosity of the history of those who provide them to the world; full of complexity and beauty. Comparing notes on those stories is the point, preserved for who’ll come next. I simply can’t get enough of that. Otherwise, I’m a common man.
