"Pretty much any amount of inattention would result in a relight or touch up. Half of the cigar would burn and it would take some time for the other half to catch up. There were no visually identifiable flaws, but I am sure there had to be something off kilter about the construction to have such a tight draw and tough burn. I would not be eager to smoke it again, but it was not unsmokable." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
"This was a great little cigar. Nice transitions, and a flavor complexity kind of right in the middle. Not too simple, not overly complex. Burn and draw made for a fun enjoyment factor, and the flavors definitely leave you wanting there to be more to smoke when it is done. Mild-mannered, and no stronger than medium, this would be a good anytime cigar, especially if you are wanting to reach for something with some good flavors and don't have a ton of time to sit and enjoy. " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"I liked this a ton. Great flavors in one of my favorite vitolas. Pretty powerful cigar, but there was still a nice range of flavors, and pretty dramatic transitions from yeasty sweetness to dark rich coffee. Only drawback was the rapid burn which seemed to be due to being rather under-filled, at least in the early stages of this smoke. I'd still buy a whole bunch more. " -John I. (John I.)
Lampert Cigars will be showing off its latest line later this week at PCA 2022. The Lampert Family Reserve 2021 is a limited release blended by Hendrik Kelner Jr. and rolled at the Kelner Boutique Factory (KBF).
"This was a supremely flavored smoked with plenty of variations and flavor notes that gave me a very relaxing experience; I only wish it wasn’t so large! Definitely recommend giving this big guy a chance as you may fall in love, especially if there are smaller size options. Two thumbs up!!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
