Gotta love a Lancero!
I don’t know why, but the Lancero really has appeal. This is another cigar from Drew Estate who rarely disappoint.
The fresh scent is simply barnyard; the wrapper is nice and smooth apart from a wonky cap, but nothing to worry about it won’t be there for long. There are two simple but stated bands – ‘Limited Edition’ referring to the fact that it was only available during events as a promotional cigar.
When lighting up pepper is all I can taste until nearly the second third. From there on it settles and leather, oak and hay show with a little sweetness for the finish.
From now on the flavours stay pretty much constant with a large pepper presence. There are slight fluctuations between sweetness and earthiness. The strength just makes it to medium with a considerable increase in smoke output for the last third.
Overall pretty boring, rarely disappoints doesn’t mean never disappoints.
