"This was the loss of sweetness in the final third away from being my favorite thing I have smoked for BMP. Looks great, smokes great, and tastes great. I’d be interested in smoking this in a Robusto if available, because while I liked everything about the flavor experience - I’d have preferred a bit shorter smoking time. " -Bill C. (Bill)
"This was a winner from beginning to end. An abundance of flavors ranging from chocolate and cocoa to nutmeg and leather. Strength was medium throughout but not mild. I would definitely smoke this cigar again. And I would recommend this to anyone wanting to rethink lanceros. Extraordinary smoke." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
o start, that corrects itself with each puff. Great notes of grass, oak, tea, and black pepper. A nice cigar to enjoy on St. Patrick's Day. A cigar I'd want in my humidor." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"Overall, this was a wonderful, flavorful, tasty cigar. I truly enjoy a cigar with a shaggy foot that actually functions well for tasting the cigar blend without a wrapper and then have it transition into something truly magical when you get there. Big big big flavors and a great construction and draw made this cigar very desirable to smoke again and again and again…. Pick up all you can of this cigar, I can’t imagine it would stay on shelves for very long!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. will show off a new 5-pack lancero sampler of their Gourmet Line blends at the PCA 2021 Trade Show. The Gourmet Line features the first 5 blends of the company’s portfolio since it launched in early 2020: Fourth Dimension, Herbert Spencer, Appendix II, Lucid Interval, and U.S.I.R.. Each lancero measures the traditional 7 x 38 and the sampler containing all 5 cigars will cost $66.00.
"Great looking and performing lancero. If you like an earthy profile this would be a great choice. I did find that it had a lack of transitions and was a bit one-dimensional. Still, the profile was solid and engaging the entire time." -Alan (Eulogy)

"I was pleased with this cigar and what it had to offer. Once I gave it the proper respect, the flavors really came together to reward my efforts. Between the chai spices and almond biscotti, I would seek this out again no question." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This cigar was exactly what I needed right now. Lots of sweet creams and cedar notes to hold my attention while throwing in hints of cinnamon here and there to really keep me on my toes. It stayed right at a mild to medium in strength from beginning to end. I would definitely like to have more of these on hand, and I bet this would pair amazingly with your morning coffee. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"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)
