“I really liked this cigar. My only complaints were the somewhat muddy flavors of the final third and the stick’s overall average smoke production. The flavors of this smoke were very well-blended and played off of one another really well. I really liked the sweetness in the flavor profile because it was never cloying or ordinary — always buttressed by cedar and toast. The performance of this lancero was surprisingly stellar. With a medium strength and perfectly complex body, this stick would pair well with a sweet tea after lunch, or, because of the cigar’s slightly-sweet profile, a fresh vanilla milkshake.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)
“A textbook case of complexity and transitions, starting mild-to-medium and finishing medium-strong while hitting most of the flavors one would expect on the way. Hands down the best BMP smoke I’ve experienced to date.” -Stefan (Stefan)
“Overall, I truly enjoyed this cigar. It was a quicker smoke and had superb flavors coming through in the beginning. The second third started well, then faded slightly, but the overall was very pleasing. Fruit and black licorice are what you will find with this stick. So, if that interests you do yourself the favor of trying these out, you will not be disappointed.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
Construction was mostly fine, with good draw through a full cut and a mostly even burn with occasional canoeing and short ashes; it seemed to be a bit tightly rolled as it went out on me four times when left unattended. Lasted me for about 90 minutes.
“The draw, burn and construction were outstanding for this beautiful looking cigar. The flavors, while not in my wheelhouse, were solid and well balanced for the first two thirds. The returning cedar and spice near the end came close to becoming harsh. This cigar might benefit from additional rest. Give me another one, however, and I will gladly smoke it.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
