Southern Draw Cedrus lancero

7.5" x 40

I don't remember when I got this cigar. I think it was part of a sampler. I know this cigar has at least 1 year of humidor time. Box-pressed, shaggy foot, nice looking wrapper. Perfect draw once the shaggy foot tobacco was consumed.

NICE smoke. Decent burn with only a couple of minor corrections. Nothing mind-blowing flavor wise, but a nice depth to the flavor that I don't get from most NCs. The wrapper is Indonesian; maybe that's the secret? Dominant flavors are what you would have in a maduro wrap cigar. The flavor lingers on the palate between draws. Nice smoke volume. Medium 'strength' throughout. Not harsh through the nose at all. Slow burn. Total burn time was around 1 hr 20 min. I let this one die at just over 1".

Final thoughts...potential box purchase for sure.

Davidoff Millennium Lancero

Sup guys? Been a while since I posted a review on here.

I, against my better judgement, bought a box of these a while back.

Construction-wise, a fantastic cigar. Perfect draw, good burn.

Flavor-wise...a big giant 'meh.' At $29/stick, I expected a lot more. But this is just an OK smoke. Nice flavors, but somewhat muted and average. Mostly straight tobacco with some woodsy notes here and there.

Final thoughts...I regret buying these, honestly. I coulda acquired way more, and way better cigars for the coin I dropped on these.

Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 Fundador (7.5" x 40)

I recently added a 5 pack of these to a Cigar Page order. This is an AJ Fernandez cigar.

Visually, a very nice stick. Draw is almost perfect. Dull looking dark wrapper.

First few draws...spice. Specifically, Nicaraguan spice. Y'all know what I'm talking about.

About 1" in...powerhouse. Too 'strong', honestly. The flavors are good but the nose exhale is harsh. Smaller draws make it a bit more tolerable.

About 2" in...the 'strength' has settled down quite a bit, and the flavors have settled into a fairly typical profile of cocoa/coffee/coconut. A woodsy flavor in the nose and on the finish gives it a bit of a unique quality. One minor burn correction.

About halfway...a nice sweetness has come in on the draw, giving this maduro a nice depth that wasn't present at first. Dominant flavors are still the same, but I can really taste the sweetness when I draw on the cigar. It's nice enough to make me take a draw, nod my head, and say, "Nice."

A little past halfway...dominant flavors are the same, but with more depth, if that makes sense. A nice smoke so far. A significant split in the wrapper that surprisingly doesn't affect the burn. Props!

Toward the end...the 'strength' has come back a bit through the nose. Dominant flavors are still the same. The sweetness on the draw has disappeared. I let 'er die at just over 1".

Final thoughts...good smoke overall, but with limited space in the cabinet, not a potential box purchase.

Crusty old Cuabo No. 1. Only one left, they're tasty (not so) little smokes!
