Unfortunately, that's the story for almost all the CCs I smoke.

Been enjoying the lanceros by Aladino lately. The corojo, Cameroon and Vintage Selection. The Maduro cazadore is more impressive than the lancero, imo.

All the Aladino cigars I have tried have been excellent, Greg.

60-63 is what I shoot for. The desktop is what I smoke from, so I'm not opening the cabinet all the time.

Shop here was running a special on Oliva so one of the ones I picked up was an Oliva V lancero. One of my favorite cigars in this size.

Just saw an article were they are coming out with a lancero for the Classic line soon, too.

I have tried everything they offer and all have been quite enjoyable except the Corojo Reserva. It's good too but not $4-5 better than the regular Corojo, imo. That is the only negative thing I have to say about Aladino. That's coming from a snob, too.

I believe I got my first Aladinos from you, Greg, and I've really enjoyed most of their stuff too.

Hey man, sorry for the late reply. I wasn't smoking cigars for 2 months (Covid).

I honestly don't know what is too dry. My humidors have gotten down to the high 50s a few times for a week or so, and the sticks were all fine.

Found my old fiver of the original Don Pepin lanceros. Going to try them with a friend. Fun to see how they all turned out.
