"It is a great lancero. The flavors were bold and crisp with enough strength to provide body and depth. I realize that I forgot to mention this earlier but the smoke output was fantastic and the ash had a constant plume of smoke coming off of it. It's an easy recommendation for me and worth picking up a fiver. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"This cigar checks all of the boxes. Great construction, wonderful changes in the profile, and impactful. It kept my attention for the whole smoking experience. If you are a lager ring gauge fan, you should seek this out. It has something for every level of smoker. At a little over an hour it makes for a great smoke for any situation. Find some and share it with some friends. You won't be disappointed" -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi

"This was an excellent cigar for the size and time commitment. Sometimes you just need a cigar for 40-50 minutes but still want a kick in the teeth. I definitely got that here. I'd be interesting in picking more of these up to add to my rotation." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This is a cigar for an experienced smoker... lots of flavor, but it really packs a punch! I’m certain that I’ll buy these once I know what it is, and I’ll certainly recommend it to my friends who like a strong cigar. For me, this hit the spot!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"I feel the only downside to this cigar was the draw but because of how much flavor I got off cigar, it ended up not bothering me that much. I felt the second third was the best part of this cigar. Although it smoked fast, the flavor of slight pepper, salted pretzels and caramel was enjoyable. For a mild to medium cigar I though this was very flavorful. For me this would be a perfect cigar for a golf course." -Jake P. (Jake P.)
