The floral first puffs of this slender smoke become woody with clear notes of graham cracker, nougat and cinnamon. There's a hint of brown sugar on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2018 | Score: 87

A slim smoke with a veiny wrapper and tight pigtail cap. It draws well, though the burn is a bit uneven. Initial flintiness dissipates to show notes of nutmeg, ground pepper and a saccharine sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Apr 01, 2017 | Score: 90

Long and slim with a tight draw. The smoke begins light with sweet tea and a bit of gingersnap before chewier notes of molasses and cinnamon emerge.

Tightly packed with tobacco, this lancero has a bit of a firm draw but still produces a sweet and floral smoke full of nougat, vanilla bean and incense notes.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2013 | Score: 88

A lightly wrapped lancer with a pigtailed cap and firm draw. Floral, perfumey notes settle down to show black tea flavors and a hint of coffee.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Dec 01, 2012 | Score: 93

Nearly perfect in appearance, this slim cigar has some resistance to the draw but burns evenly. Earthy and peppery flavors layer the palate before a dried cherry sweetness and a subtle spice.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Sep 27, 2011 | Score: 92

Long and thin with a pigtail cap. The draw is a bit firm, but this lancero shows lots of coffee bean character balanced by touches of spice and earth.

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

A thin, veiny cigar with a very healthy, oily complexion and easy draw. Leather notes complement flavors of roasted nuts and dark coffee before a medium-bodied, gummy finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2005 | Score: 86

A panetela with a near-perfect pigtail. The draw and burn are fine. The smoke is cedary and a bit harsh at times, a good performer without much intensity of flavor. A smoke that might come back alive with a few months' age.

Well made, with an oily wrapper and a pig-tail. It's leathery and peppery, with a rich aroma. At the time, this cigar was sold for 46 Canadian dollars.
