Cigar of the Week: Gran Habano Triple Lancero

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Though listed as “full-bodied,” to my taste, the blend has more of a medium-bodied character. Like most Gran Habano cigars, the smoke is thick, creamy and aromatic. An earthy-toasty flavor kicks it off, then builds to an impressively complex smoke offering flavors of cocoa, almonds, and sweet tobacco, making this slim jim quite a treat. Moreover, due to the Lancero’s narrow ring gauge, you get a lot of flavor from the wrapper, which balances well with the all-ligero core.

Coincidentally, a few years ago George Rico, Don Guillermo’s son and the man behind G.A.R. cigars, once gave me some Lanceros that are made only for him. Although he wouldn’t divulge the blend, he obviously likes this shape. If you think the Lancero is a “girly” cigar, or doesn’t supply enough tobacco for your buck, you just might want to think again and give the Gran Habano Triple Lancero a try.
