A densely packed lancero with a dead-even burn. It's toasty and rich, imparting sweet notes of marzipan, dried fruit and coffee. Complex and enjoyable.

A reddish-brown lancero topped with a pigtail cap and very oily wrapper. Though the draw is a bit firm, it imparts profound nutmeg notes, along with gingerbread, cinnamon and light earthy flavor.

There's a slightly firm draw to this pigtailed panatela, but lots of complexity that ranges from cream and cumin to more full-bodied flavors of coffee and rock salt.

A bumpy lancero with a notably firm draw and primarily salty, earthy flavors, though dark roasted espresso notes come through as the cigar is smoked.

This handsomely rolled lancero burns well but has a firm draw. Earthy flavors come through on initial puffs, but warm to show coffee, cocoa bean and some leather.

A pigtailed panetela with a well-oiled wrapper. Its tight draw inhibits the leather, toast and sweet flavors that would otherwise fully materialize.

A lovely lancero that draws very well. It has a rich core of chocolatey, nutty flavors peppered with earthy spices. The finish is long and complex with cinnamon notes.

An oily cigar with a nicely finished pig tail. The draw is firm, and the cigar burns evenly. It has an easygoing start, but blossoms into a fuller bodied spicy, leathery cigar with rich, sweet coffee notes.

This cigar has an attractive pig tail. The draw is slightly tight, but it is smooth and spicy with an earthy quality to the smoke.

A benchmark for this size. It's silky and smooth with cedar, chocolate and spice highlights and a long, flavorful aftertaste.
