Another one of old Castro's favorites, the Cohiba Lanceros is a cigar rich in history, not to mention flavor!
Long and thin, a very original cigar in appearance.
Seeing this cigar brings on two interesting view points. One is that they are very knobby, with a lumpiness to them. The interesting part is that though one might think that this is a bad aspect, further inspection shows that these cigars have very excellent little hand rolled construction. I must say that, when closely viewed, it appears if great care were taken in the building of this beauty.
Early into this cigar I was thrilled to find a smooth, grassy sensation, with no harshness at all. 2/3 of the way in, still no overwhelming sensation. Smooth and lovely as could be. The finale was outstanding. This is one of the very few cigars that seemed to maintain an equal consistancy from beginning to end. It's a pity Castro kept this one to himself as long as he did. A creamy smoke, this is one of those very few early in the morning with nothing on your pallet cigars, good with a latte, perhaps.
These are really some pricey cigars, but wow, are they truly worth it. I strongly suggest these for special occasions only, such as the day of your daughters wedding, right after you get up. Sit back and smoke these and just remember when she was a little girl. It's a great "once in a lifetime event" smoke.
Overall Rating :
There are only a select few cigars that I am this pleased with. I haven't aged any yet, but you can bet that there are a couple in my Humidor.
