I am a spice wuss so boardering on over powering with the spice being about jalapenos on the heat level. The good thing is there are other flavors to consentrate on so thats a plus. The other flavors are on the back end and consist of butter and campfire and nuttyness" -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)92.5MediumMedium-Full"All spice leaves, complexity widens. The cigar does lose some power. Draw has been a little tighter than i like burn has been great with no touch ups so far. Still alot of butter and earth and leather. The butter may be leaning more toward sweetend cream." -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)87.5MediumMedium"Last third becomes a little bitter and charcoally. Burn needs corrected and draw becomes tighter yet. Molasses is nice in the last third" -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)87.5"It was a little tighter than i perfer especially in the last third" -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)92.5"Needed one correction in the last third" -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)85"An overall ugly cigar but produces very nice flavors" -<strong>Ryan H. </strong> (Ryan H.)90"A very nice experience.

A skinny Churchill with a dark brown wrapper and a little pig tail at the cap." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90"I am detecting a nice aroma of a good strong cup of tea. There is also a slight hint of wet grass in there as well." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90Mild-MediumMedium-Full"This is full of wonderful flavors. Notes of tea, coffee, chocolate and oak. A very nice start. Well balanced and very pleasing to the palate. I like how everything has started off so well. I only hope this will continue throughout." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)90MediumMedium-Full"The strength of is moving between medium and light-medium. I am now picking up a mild peppery taste leaving a slight tingle on the lips. My favorite part. The flavors are all remaining nicely balanced making this an enjoyable experience thus far." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5MediumMedium"The flavors are beginning to blend into a strong, coffee and oak flavor. The peppery taste is still there but it is hard to distinguish between the tea, coffee and chocolate that were there in the beginning." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)82.5"The draw was like trying to drink a thick milkshake through a small straw." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5"The burn was good." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5"While the construction was good, it did get soft between the fingers." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)87.5"This cigar had some personality. The beginning was nicely balanced with teas, coffees, chocolates and some oak. The peppery tingle came in about half way though but soon everything gelled into a strong cup of coffee or tea. In the final third, near the end, it leveled off into a good cup of tea. Overall I enjoys this one. I just don;t like the length of time needed. This would be a good one for the humidor if it were shorter." -<strong>Eric </strong> (smalls29)7800001010001

There are a few tiny chips at the foot that reveal a binder that is much lighter than the wrapper." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)95"The aroma on this lancero is captivating. It is a mix of molasses and rich compost with a sweet undertone." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)95Mild-MediumLight-Medium"The initial flavors of this one are mild and filled with savory baking spices. The finish is short and clean and leaves me fresh and ready for the next puff. Through the nose there is a slight blast of white pepper." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)92.5Mild-MediumMedium"The second portion of this cigar brought in some intermittent flashes of black pepper along with the baking spices. Not at all over powering and just a nice level of change and complexity." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)95MediumMedium"The final third ramped up the strength a bit as the baking spices left and the pepper stepped to the front. Through the nose I'm detecting a hint of cloves and a faint white pepper zing." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)92.5"A really nice draw on this skinny stick... As a result my smoke stayed nice and cool while giving me plenty of flavor." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)92.5"The burn on this cigar was spot on even with an ocean breeze." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)95"I had absolutely no issues with this cigar. My punch did split the cap a bit but it still held together very well." -<strong>Jason H. </strong> (Jokey Smurf)95"This was a joy for me to smoke. I was able to discern some flavor shifts along with just plain enjoyable flavors.

Nice dark wrapper when a vey cool end cap. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95"Lots of pepper and cocoa from the foot of this cigar. Wrapper smells fantastic, and I'm expecting this cigar to pack a punch. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95Medium-StrongMedium-Full"The cigar begins with a spicy blast both in the retro hale and in the body. This is something I alwasy enjoy. Starting out pretty strong overall. It will be interesting to see if this cigar changes up more or just continues like this. Not detecting any of the chocolate I picked up before lighting though. Lots of cedar, earthy flavors to start. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95Medium-StrongMedium-Full"Strength and body continues to be a very nice strong cigar. Really enjoy the earthy / wood flavors this cigar produces. Its strong but still contains some complexity that some cigars lack. Some nice floral elements appear along with salty peanut flavors. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)92.5MediumMedium"The final 1/3 of the cigar changes a bit into more of a medium bodied cigar. A lot of the flavors carries over into this stage of the cigar but sadly the cigar becomes a bit ashy and muted. I tried to purge the cigar at this point but not much improvement. Still a tasty cigar but wished the flavors were are bright and enjoyable as the cigar started out. I'm still enjoy the spice this cigar brings. Not as much in the body but still a nice strong blast of pepper in the retro hale. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)97.5"Longer lanceros can usually carry with it a tight draw that can be difficult to smoke. Thankfully not this cigar. Very smooth draw with a fair amount of resistance but enjoyable to smoke. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95"The cigar didn't hold a very tight ash but had a nice clean burn line throughout the entire smoke. No issues at all. " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95"Sadly the cigar had some wrapper damage but I'm pretty sure that was my fault. I keep my review cigars stored in a small airtight container (with Boveda pack) and as this was my last cigar to review, it might have been bumped slightly over the last month or so. I will not take the wrapper damage into consideration as I do not think it was delivered to me this way. Overall a nicely constructed cigar (even if it may have a easy to damage wrapper). " -<strong>David F. </strong> (dfafjf)95"I really loved the first 1/2 of the cigar. Sadly the final 1/3 of the cigar started to get very muted and ashy tasting. Cleaning my pallet didn't help. Purging the cigar didn't help. But this is a long cigar and I have had similar experiences from other companies. Even though the final 1/3 of the cigar wasn't perfect, it was still a very enjoyable cigar throughout. Lots of spice, earthy / cedar flavors, mixed with a great amount of salty peanut flavors.
