Not as tasty as the Robusto but still very good, with excellent construction and 60-minute burn. 88-90 points

Thought this stick would be good, boy was I wrong. The flavor was like grass and burnt charcoal with a hint of bitter cheese. Not what my palate is used to. Also, the burn was VERY fast and hot and I could hear the cigar snap and pop as I smoked it. I had to put it out before the halfway point because the wrapper and binder both split completely from about the halfway point to the shoulder. It looked like a fire cracker had exploded inside the filler. I would rate it at a solid 01/100. one point because it did not go out. I will not be buying these again and I can't recommend this cigar to anyone.

"Should be Los Blancos Nine-Point-Five"
I'm loath to do a review after a single cigar, but this one (lancero) was just too impressive to let go. The pre-light draw seemed tight, but actually produced a nice volume of rich, full-bodied smoke, featuring a coffee-tinged earthiness with a bit of balancing sweetness. The burn was nearly flawless. My remaining precious few are now going to be saved for special times. The only drawback is having to choose between buying either singles or a box of 50.

"great lancero, my favorite of this size"
beautiful construction, nice unlit flavors on draw, a little tight draw, burns even with nice ash, love the dark oily appearance, seem to be very consistent between sticks. hope they keep this one.
