As if the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero blend wasn't powerful enough, the Lancero size rendered the strong, spicy smoke even more intense. Lanceros might give less smoke in terms of volume, but the thinner ring gauge tends to concentrate the smoke, especially as it flows from cigar to palate during the draw. The cigar is bracing from the very first puff, letting you know that, despite the skinny dimensions, this is a formidable cigar. Initial puffs are seriously spicy, but the piquancy is balanced by leather and coffee notes—even a sweet hint of honey on the finish. Brand owner Litto Gomez grows the Dominican tobacco in this cigar on his own farms in La Canela, which is dryer and hotter than many other tobacco growing regions in the Dominican Republic.
