Southern Draw pre-release Lancero

I am going at this cigar mostly blind. It was in a bonus pack I got at a Southern Draw event. Pigtail cap, rustic light wrapper with a closed foot. The bunch is firm. The cold draw is perfect . Today’s beverage is a Chameleon Cold Brew.



Opening notes of cedar are prominent with light white pepper notes in the retrohale. The burn is even and the mottled grey ash looks fairly solid but drops at about 1/2 inch.



The first third is medium bodied. The cedar notes continue with a very light touch of bourbon. There is also a creaminess to the smoke. The burn continues to be even.



Nearing the second third coffee notes have emerged to add to the complexity of the flavors. The construction of the cigar is excellent. The burn continues to be even.



For a medium bodied cigar this is very full flavorful. A well balanced complexity of flavors makes this a great morning cigar with coffee. Approaching the final inch it continues to be creamy and smooth. The white pepper notes in the retrohale are pleasant and not overwhelming. The only problem I had was that the cigar went out several times. But it was worth relighting every time. 8.5/10, now I want to know the details of the cigar. Joe Bob says check it out.
