Default LONSDALE love!

OK, so the lancero thread is still going strong after quite a while, so let's start a thread for the lancero's slightly fatter cousin...the LONSDALE.

Tonight, I smoked a Siboney Reserve lonsdale. This is a Famous Smoke Shop exclusive line made by Casa Fernandez.

Great smoke. Medium 'strength' throughout, with a nice baking spice flavor present through most of the cigar. A bit of a crooked burn that required several touch ups, but all in all a good cigar. And at the auction price of around $5/stick with shipping and taxes, the Siboney Reserve lonsdale is a winner.

I like the SR lonsdale, too!

I’ve got a long relationship with the Oliva Connecticut Reserve lonsdale. It’s sorta a Sunday afternoon tradition with me. A little mellower than the O, which is regular rotation for me.

I love lonsdales. Unfortunately as a 90%+ Cuban smoker, the regular production choices have become super limited in the last decade+.

I do like some of Caldwell's lonsdales, and a few other NC ones as well.

That being said, think I may smoke a Ramon Allones 898 for Xmas.

They are indeed a nice smoke, and can be had for under $4/stick on both C-Bid and Cigar Auctioneer.

Guardian Of The Farm Apollo Seleccion De Warped Natural


This 6 X 44 dandy is a nice smoke indeed. Rich and medium 'strength' with that recognizable flavor that I call Nicaraguan Spice. Long finish that lingers on the palate between draws. Mellows a little at around the halfway point and the flavor profile changes. Dominant flavors are still the same, but the nose exhale has taken on a woodsy flavor, with a nice anise flavor on the finish.

Mucielago Rabito (6.5" X 46)

Having tried and enjoyed the Murcielago toro and lancero, I was pleasantly surprised to find a lonsdale size on the Famous auction site. Snagged a fiver and have had one nekkid and in the low RH humi for a couple of months now.

A bit less bite in the nostrils than the lancero, more prominent coconut flavors than either the lancero or toro. Solid medium "strength" in the first half, kicks it up a notch around halfway.

Like the other sizes I've tried, no major twists and turns in this cigar. But it was very enjoyable.

I have a handful left from a '00 box. Unfortunately most have suffered from tight draws. But when the draw is just right, it's an amazing smoke with several flavor transitions.
