"This was a splendid and sagacious cigar, with notes including honey graham cracker and rich baking spice, all of which I really enjoy. That being said, the open draw and feint ending were a bit of a downer for me. Overall, it is one I could see myself revisiting, as these drawbacks could be one-off issues and the next experience is much more fulfilling. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

"The combination of salted nuts, butter, white pepper, and peanuts really sets this cigar apart from other mild cigars. Mild in strength but full of flavor. I would highly recommend this to any cigar lover. A perfect morning cigar or really any time of day cigar. Would love to see how this pairs with a Chai tea or a lighter roasted coffee." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"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)
"I really couldn’t be happier with this cigar in regard to performance and the flavor profile. It was never overpowering but had the fuller flavor profile that I prefer. I paired this with a barrel-aged stout (2022 Black Tuesday) and it was a perfect match. I would gladly recommend it to any of my cigar-smoking friends, and I will absolutely seek out more when I find out what this is! Very good cigar!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"Though it smoked tighter than I like, the flavors were very enjoyable. It is a nice after-dinner Maduro with heavy chocolate, molasses, and toffee notes. The addition of increasing spices throughout the blend hit my palate well but I could see it putting off some who would just enjoy the sweetness of the cigar." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

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. The flavors in this cigar were impressive and there were enough transitions to keep me interested. This is definitely a cigar I'd try again. Thanks for the opportunity. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77
