Thanks for keeping this thread going, guys.

Murcielago lancero (7.5 x 38)

The Murcielago line has come and gone several times over the years. I believe the first generation were made by Pepin. This latest version are made by AJ Fernandez. I've smoked through several 5 packs of toros, which are pretty good and can be had on C-Bid for as little as $11, but I nabbed a fiver of these lanceros from Cigar Auctioneer.

Box-pressed, dark maduro wrapper. The cigar is a bit light in the hand, but the draw is surprisingly not loose.

Interesting flavors at first. I was expecting the typical maduro flavors of coffee/cocoa/etc. but the first inch or so has an herbal and earthy flavor.

Toward the middle, the more typical maduro-like flavors start to come through. The draw has tightened a bit, which tells me that I need to move the rest of these to my low humidity humidor for a while. The draw really closes up and the flavor starts getting sour in the last 1/3.

Gonna store these in a low humidty box for a few months and revisit. Definite promise, though.
