"It's June while I'm reviewing this so the talk of winter smokes seems out of place here but this is a strong contender for the colder months. The smoke output, flavors, and construction all make this a tiny but mighty cigar for me. If you want a compact flavorful cigar this could be what you're looking for." -Alan (Eulogy)
"I won't lie; I have a love-hate relationship any time I come across a lancero. When done properly, they're typically the best means of expressing a profile for me. The problem is the consistency overall with them. Some require constant relighting if you're not tending to it perfectly with your draws, some burn super hot when you do, others draw like you're trying to suck a marble through a straw. None of these experiences are ideal in my book. Fortunately, this one gave me none of these problems. It was a nice profile mix of chocolate and cinnamon with some heavy doses of pepper starting out. I'd be willing to smoke it again, but probably not enough to run out and pick up a box or two. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
