"I enjoyed just about everything about his cigar. The construction, burn, flavors and appearance were all excellent. I would buy a five pack and, if I get the same experience, pick up a box. A great medium/full smoke that I'd recommend to others." -Brian (B-daddy)
Miami, Florida, July 16, 2014 – G.R. Tabacaleras Co. Cigar Factory, owned and operated by George Rico in Little Havana, announces that a new edition of a very popular S.T.K. cigar will be unveiled this summer, joining the S.T.K. Miami American Puro and Barracuda lines.
"This cigar was a performer...looks, burn, draw and flavor...all top notch in my book. I could easily see myself paying in excess of $10 for these...a little speedy for everyday, but just right for a top notch smoke. Highly recommended for Lancero fans who like some flavor and enough strength to let you know it's there...where can I get a box...or at least a fiver!?" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"Overall the cigar was a pleasant smoke. The initial and final thirds were not up to mark, but the middle third was excellent with several changes in flavors and with perfect burn and draw. I will definitely try this one again to see if some time in the humi might get rid of the harshness in the very final third of the cigar." -Sandeep (Djangos)
I feel like the other vitolas are just passable, but this one is one to take note of. I would say that the cigar started out at medium-full strength and then eased back to medium for the final two thirds. I highly recommend that you seek these out.
"As long a smoke as this cigar was, I nubbed it and wished that it wouldn't stop. You just can't beat a cigar with a great flavor profile and a great burn. If I had another one in the humidor, I would have went and gotten it to smoke it immediately. Someone send me another one or box! Seriously, I will be looking to pick some up on the reveal." -Jason (bigslowrock)
"There wasn't a lot of interest even though the middle third kept me anticipating the next draw. The flavors worked well together but never really seemed to wow me. This would probably be better paired with a flavorful drink." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
