"This cigar was exactly what I needed right now. Lots of sweet creams and cedar notes to hold my attention while throwing in hints of cinnamon here and there to really keep me on my toes. It stayed right at a mild to medium in strength from beginning to end. I would definitely like to have more of these on hand, and I bet this would pair amazingly with your morning coffee. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"I won't lie; I have a love-hate relationship any time I come across a lancero. When done properly, they're typically the best means of expressing a profile for me. The problem is the consistency overall with them. Some require constant relighting if you're not tending to it perfectly with your draws, some burn super hot when you do, others draw like you're trying to suck a marble through a straw. None of these experiences are ideal in my book. Fortunately, this one gave me none of these problems. It was a nice profile mix of chocolate and cinnamon with some heavy doses of pepper starting out. I'd be willing to smoke it again, but probably not enough to run out and pick up a box or two. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

"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)

"I am usually not a huge fan of Lanceros. However, this one could convert me. Box worthy for sure if the price was right although I expect this to be a super premium." -James H. (Keikan Jim)
