Got this one in a lancero/lonsdale trade on C-Bid.

Not much flavor at first, a woodsy finish. About 1" in, a nasty chemical aftertaste comes in. This is a bit comical to me, since the only other Muestra de Saka cigar I've tried had the same issue. I pitched this one pretty quick.

EDIT: I just looked up this cigar. $120+ for a box of 7? HAHAHAHA muthaf*kka please...
Those Saka cigars ain't cheap, Mark. I liked the Umbagog and a couple others that were gifted to me on another forum. Haven't had the Muestra, and sounds like I am glad? :-) :-)

I'm not surprised at this. Steve Saka has said it himself that he's not a fan of lanceros. But then he makes a lancero to please all those people asking him to do so (supposedly). The name of the cigar says it all. I like most of Saka's stuff, but I'll stay away from this one.

First up is Crafted by Casa Fernandez (7.5" x 40). I had never heard of this line, but added a bundle of 10 to an order from Serious Cigars a while back. No exaggeration, these are probably the best cigar I've smoked so far this year, including CCs. Bold but smooth, good draw/burn, lots of subtle flavor changes, no harshness or ammonia flavor even at the nub. Halfway through my second one, I ordered 4 more bundles.
Just Ordered A Bundle. Hope They're As Good As You Say, Mark!:-)

The panatelas are seconds of the La Barba Reds.

These are very good--virtually identical with the La Barba Red firsts imho.

Just try some--you can thank me later.
Site Says No Longer Available.:-)

Tonight I tried a Balmoral Anejo FT Lancero and was underwhelmed. It looked promising at first. Great appearance and construction, perfect draw, good smoke production, even burn......flavor fell flat though. It was on the verge of being very good at times, but just couldn't get there. I wouldn't purchase it again based off of that one smoke, but it was pleasant enough to take me through an episode and a half of Top Gear. I'll try the Oscuro version next and see if it's any better.

Now this was the cigar that last night's Lancero FT was trying to be. Very nice cigar. Again, it's hard to form an opinion from just one cigar, but based on this one, it's box worthy. Certainly stronger and much more flavorful, nice smoke production, nice construction and appearance. Balmoral Oscuro FT lancero is definitely worth a try.

Update....apparently they only released 500 boxes in the US. Bummer.

Thanks for keeping this thread going, guys.

Murcielago lancero (7.5 x 38)

The Murcielago line has come and gone several times over the years. I believe the first generation were made by Pepin. This latest version are made by AJ Fernandez. I've smoked through several 5 packs of toros, which are pretty good and can be had on C-Bid for as little as $11, but I nabbed a fiver of these lanceros from Cigar Auctioneer.

Box-pressed, dark maduro wrapper. The cigar is a bit light in the hand, but the draw is surprisingly not loose.

Interesting flavors at first. I was expecting the typical maduro flavors of coffee/cocoa/etc. but the first inch or so has an herbal and earthy flavor.

Toward the middle, the more typical maduro-like flavors start to come through. The draw has tightened a bit, which tells me that I need to move the rest of these to my low humidity humidor for a while. The draw really closes up and the flavor starts getting sour in the last 1/3.

Gonna store these in a low humidty box for a few months and revisit. Definite promise, though.

Hmmm. I was eyeballing those just the other day. Might be worth a look.
