A cedary-tasting lancero with bursts of citrus throughout. Underlying notes of earth and rawhide lead to dry finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2015 | Score: 91

There's an unusual multi-seam cap atop this lancero, which produces ample smoke on the draw. Earthy and wheaty notes combine with a raisin and dried fruit sweetness, culminating in a maple finish.
