Southern Draw pre-release Lancero Take 2

The last time I smoked/reviewed a Southern Draw pre-release Lancero it had an orange ribbon at the foot. This one has a gold ribbon where the band would normally be. The wrapper is medium brown with smooth and spicy aromas and a closed foot. It has a fine firm bunch. The cold draw is flawless. Today’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.



Excellent spicy notes make me guess Habano wrapper. There is also a good cedar note in the plentiful smoke. The burn is even and the ash is light grey and pretty solid looking.



The first third is pleasantly spicy and surprisingly medium bodied while still full flavored. A blend of cedar and spices are blending nicely. The burn continues to be even although the ash dropped on me. And Topo Chico is always a great pairing for any cigar.



During the second third some leather notes appeared to round out the already complex blend. There is a light white pepper note in the retrohale. The burn continues to be even. The cigar is delivering a rich cedar finish.



Approaching the final inch the flavors remain complex and steady. This is a very well constructed cigar with an even burn throughout. 9.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
