The Lancero is the third in the 1502 XO series. The XO series is an annual release, each year getting a different vitola. 2015 saw the wide release of the Toro, and 2016 was the Churchill, and 2017 saw the Salamon. There is a total of 8 vitolas planned. A limited number of 1502 XO Lanceros were sold in 2016 to keep ahead of the FDA deadline with the wide release happening now.
The lancero comes in a 7 x 40 vitola and comes in 10-count boxes. Each cigar is priced at $16 and is rolled at Plasencia Cigars in Nicaragua. Production for this shipment is only around 200 boxes. The blend is undisclosed other than the fact that Enrique Sanchez says it uses 18 year old tobacco.
