Pinar Del Rio Sungrown Lancero Cigar Review

This 7.25×38 stick packed a whollup of spice through the first two thirds, that only calmed down at the end. I have had buffalo wings with less heat than this put off on my lips and tongue at the start! Besides the hot finish it offered a myriad of flavor combinations, changing up every 10 draws or so. Total smoke time to the band was 1:30 with a perfect firm draw and straight burn. Flavors included tobacco, leather, bread, barnyard and nuts – all very smooth and creamy with rich voluminous clouds of smoke. Thank you very much to Pinar Del Rio Cigars for generously donating this stick for review, it’s greatly appreciated!

    Nice review – I have one of these in a Robusto size in my humi waiting for me to try. I dont like spicy food though, so I may not care for this.

  • Thanks! I don’t know if the robusto is going to be like the lancero – but you definitely would not like the lancero lol!

  • Bryan,

    Great review, I’ve loved Abe’s cigars since I first smoked them. Waiting on the sungrown lancero myself, hopefully later this month. I’m a big lancero fan, you may want to try the Illusione hl, it is outstanding. Good work, man.

      I agree w/ above… Epernay Illusions are pretty darn good. I tried a couple of different sizes and my favorite is the petite size. It packs the most spice. The only thing I do not like about Illusions are that they are kinda expensive.

    I had the torpedo version today. Not as spicey as I had hoped. I was hoping for a serious spice bomb. Still a good cigar though. Gonna look for the lancero next time and give it a go…

    Love these. One of my top 5 sticks. I’ve spent three times the price and been dissapointed. Great review.

    The torpedo vitola in this is one of my favorites. None of the lip burn, and just enough spice to stay interested.
