New for IPCPR 2016 - Protocol Lancero

This Lancero sports a beautiful dark and smooth Ecuadoran Habano Oscuro wrapper with a firm bunch. The foot smells of leather and cocoa. I get an easy clip and a perfect cold draw.

An easy light leads to a nice full draw with plenty of smoke. Notes of tobacco, leather and cocoa emerge with a bit of pepper in the nose. A light sweetness from the wrapper lingers on the lips. The ash is light grey and the burn is razor straight.

There is a slight harshness near the beginning that disappears almost immediately. The leather and cocoa notes are complemented by a Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout. Smooth nutty notes also emerge as the flavor develops.

Tobacco notes subdue into a smooth creaminess that takes the flavor to another level. The creamy cocoa notes make the flavor quite exquisite. The ash is not flaky, but taps off easily every half inch or so.

No “double clutching” is needed to produce plentiful smoke from the perfect draw of this cigar. And even deep draws don’t heat up the smoke. The uncut remainder of the cap unraveled, but this had no negative effects. The smoke is thick enough to allow for smoke rings.

The tobacco notes return for the final third of the cigar without affecting the creaminess of the smoke. Like most Lanceros the flavor has continued to develop for a truly complex smoke. Pepper notes have returned to complement the overall flavor.

At about one inch the cigar becomes too hot to hold, but it still qualifies as a nubber. Fractions off for two touch-ups; 9.5/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
