Lanceros are the deep tracks of the cigar world, embraced by connoisseurs but ignored by many casual cigar lovers. The long, slim cigars are tough to make, and when made right they are exceptional, with a great amount of the flavor delivered by the wrapper. Such is the case for Luciano The Dreamer, the signature smoke of Ace Prime owner Luciano Meirelles. The cigar was born as a limited-edition in 2020, but its reception led Meirelles to change strategy and make it a regular release in 2021. Its combination of tobaccos from Ecuador Havana wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler, with just a touch of Peruvian leaf, give it sublime flavors of chocolate-covered almonds, café au lait and just a bit of spice.
