Bellas Artes Maduro Getting a Limited-Edition Lancero
The Lancero measures 7 inches by 40 ring gauge and ships in 10-count boxes. Only 2,000 boxes will be released.

When A.J. Fernandez released the Bellas Artes Maduro last year, it came in four sizes. Now, it has a fifth: a 7 inch by 40 ring gauge Lancero, but it’s a limited smoke. The company says that it’s only producing 2,000 boxes of 10, or 20,000 Lanceros, in total.

Each box-pressed Lancero has a suggested retail price of $10 each.

Like the rest of the line, the new smoke is wrapped in a strikingly dark Brazilian Mata Fina cover leaf. Underneath, a Mexican San Andrés binder holds together a filler blend of Nicaraguan tobacco grown on Fernandez’s farms. It’s made at the Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua factory in Estelí.

The Bellas Artes Maduro Robusto scored 90 points in a Cigar Aficionado blind tasting.

According to the company, the Lanceros will start shipping to retailers on Monday.
