"A nice sweet cigar with notes of sugar, peanuts, leather, and burnt toast. A minor touch-up was needed due to splitting. A nice dessert cigar that I'd try again." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"With the exception of the middle portion, I was pleased with the experience. There were periods of very nice flavor and this would be enough for me to revisit this in the future. There was some power in this one so beginners beware…drink a beverage and you’ll probably be fine. Overall this was a nice way to finish an evening." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"Great pleasure to smoke this lancero cigar. Notes of sugar, floral, peanut, and licorice. Perfection throughout this stick. Minor unraveling doesn't interfere with smoke. Pairs well with coffee. A cigar that I'd seek out and smoke again." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
Crowned Heads is the latest company set to offer an exclusive cigar to attendees of the PCA 2021 Trade Show. Le Pâtissier translates to 'pastry chef' in French. The new brand got its inspiration from the Crowned Heads Le Carême line, which was inspired by French chef Marie-Antoine Careme.
"Eh, this cigar wasn't really for me. It wasn't bad, but it's was kind of boring, Gave me typical flavors of wood, cinnamon, and white pepper. The strength was a medium at best. If given to me I would smoke again, but wouldn't actively seek this one out." -Mickey T. (irratebass)
La Flor Dominicana has announced a new cigar, the Golden Bull, but it will not be sold in a way that has been done before. The company will sell an NFT for the cigar. Owners of that NFT will then have access to purchase the cigar. With only 7 NFT's being sold, the availability of the cigar will be very limited. An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token, meaning a digital representation of a real-world object that cannot be copied or stolen. They run on the same technology, Blockchain, as cryptocurrencies.
"The Lonsdale vitola is quickly becoming one of my favorite sizes. The flavors seem to really pop in this format.

"It is easy to say that this cigar was phenomenal. There are so many areas where a cigar this size could go wrong but when done right it can be transcended. This will be a box worthy cigar once I find out what it is. If you are a fan of a profile that is sweet and savory with some great spice that lingers, this will be the cigar for you. Enjoy." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
