The draw and burn of this lancero are even and lush. Woody, nutty notes are most prominent, with touches of pecan and almond paste. Hints of saltine crackers also emerge, as do the earthy qualities of freshly dug roots.

Oily and alluring with a reddish tinge to the wrapper and slight resistance on the draw. It's earthy, mineral qualities are matched with fruit notes and a hint of maple sweetness.
