Weird, I tried those Ninfamaniacs several years ago and thought they were awful. Different strokes...

Enjoying an Oliva V lancero. I really liked the last (first) one I smoked, so I wanted to try a few more before committing to a box.

I must say...this is a damn good cigar. Oliva has been not so great for me in the past few years. In fact, with the exception of the Connecticut Reserve, Oliva has been on my 'do not buy' list for quite some time. I think it's time to rethink that. And it's time to snag a box of V lanceros.

What should I smoke while in the deer blind? Yeah, I thought so, a lancero sounds like a good idea!

The other Ninfamaniac sound like a wonderful idea. A nice smoke, not quite what the maduro version is, but a decent smoke. Decent burn and abit more subdued and one dimensional in comparison to its darker twin.



Another day in the woods, and since I had does around while smoking, another cigar sounds like a good idea. The Balmoral Anjeo smoked wonderfully. It is complex with hints of a hearty wheat bread, mild hints of pepper, and ephemeral gleamings of citrus.

Revisiting the Cuban Crafters Medina 1959 lancero tonight.

This one was much better than the first one I tried. I would imagine that it's because of the nekkid humidor time. I really need to break myself of the compulsion to try every new cigar right off the truck. They always need at least a short nap of a month or so.

Class 34 Sungrown Blend lancero (7" X 38)

Not much in the way of real flavor at first; smoke burns my tongue. What's crazy, though, is the aroma coming from the foot is really nice. About 2" in, a nasty mildewy hay flavor comes in. I pitched this thing pretty quickly.

I've bought new/unknown cigars from Cigar Page before and been disappointed. The Class 34 Sungrown lancero is no exception.

That's the Skinny Drac, Greg. Ok, not my favorite of the bunch. That would likely either be the Mummy or the Frank.

Sending cigars to a friend implies no mooching involved.

Default Re: Lancero love

So, I am always looking for a deal on great smokes. So, there comes an advert from Cigar Page about their Class 34 cigars with the usual cover story of "these cigars come straight from the same factory as their famous counterparts but without the middle man and the fancy bands or packaging" story. I really enjoy lanceros, so I put the maduro #9, mad #47, sun grown #14, and Connie #1 in the cart. Then I ought, "what am I gonna do with 76 cigars I don't like." (Figuring I tried one of each and they were not good) So I got in touch with another pastor up here who enjoys cigars but is always looking for a deal. He said he'd buy half of them at that price $2.00 a stick.

Well, I have each of the maduros and while I did not plan to review them and so did not take notes...they were both very good. 9 had hints of coffee and cocoa, burning to a short nub. The 47 was a bit bolder with some spice, also burning to a short nub. No burn issues for either.

At this point I am glad of the order.

I am looking forward to the other 2 now. If they are even close to as good as these, I will be glad to have made the purchase. I like the sticks I like, and I like trying new things. It is nice however when you can go out fishing, or sit on the tractor clearing the driveway, or when you out mowing you have a cigar - and let's face it, not pay 100% attention to it. BUT... it is a decent tasting cigar when you do pause to ponder it.

So, it appears these may be in the category.

Or, when you go to a pastoral conference and a few guys are mooching because the only smoke cigars around you, you can give them something that isn't going to break the bank.

Peace of the Lord be with you.
