    The fact that this line of cigars was re-blended by Don Pepin Garcia should leave it as no surprise that a Lancero was eventually added to the card. Pepin has a reputation for being partial the old-school Cuban way of doing things and he seems to have a love of the traditional connoisseur vitolas like the Lancero. Not only that, but he seems to have a special talent for masterfully blending for the Lancero as his Lanceros tend to be the best on the market in my opinion. That said I have been looking forward to trying this cigar given how much I have enjoyed the other larger sizes in the line.

    Like a lot of Lanceros it isn’t the prettiest cigar. It is a bit bumpy and lumpy looking but the draw is excellent and the burn is razor sharp. It starts off a little peppery before falling into a woody/nutty core complimented with leather and occasional subtly sweet caramel notes. There weren’t any dramatic changes in flavors but rather shifts in intensity between the present flavors and a build up of black pepper near the end of the smoke. Watchout for the ash on this one. It is a little flaky and falls off easily. If you don’t pay attention you’ll be wearing it. All in all the Nestor Miranda Special Selection Lancero is an excellent cigar that I will smoke again.
