Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 88

A rustic-looking lancero with a matte wrapper and pigtail cap. Its firm draw offers some woody, oaky notes, touches of salted taffy and a bit of roasted coffee bean. The finish is dry and gritty.

This dark lancero is very woody with some tarriness and spicy licorice notes. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2012 | Score: 87

Packed solid with tobacco this lancero starts out soft and floral picking up touches of anise and charred wood, but a firm draw and insubstantial smoke hurt the score.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2010 | Score: 89

Dark and toothy, this lancero has a slightly firm, but workable draw. A sweet cigar overall with vanilla notes and cocoa powder complemented by a subtle peppery spice.

Richly colored with a pigtail cap. The Simple smoke is woody and papery with spice on the finish.

A very dark, thin lancero with a tight draw and uneven burn. It’s leathery and toasty with significant dry, woody notes. Medium bodied overall.
