Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Lancero Corojo Cigar Review

This 7×38 stick features a dark brown glove soft wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap, slight box press, oily sheen firm even pack and a soft hay and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with a very smooth, oily leather and tobacco on the draw with a touch of pepper flavor through the finish. The first third holds the same flavors, continuing perfect burn and smoke production. 40 minutes in near the 1/2 way point, flavors shift to a sweet creamy smooth earth, carrying a deep long finish of the same. Ending at 1:10 minutes the last third continued the same flavors to the last inch where it got too hot for my taste. Thank you very much to the Hemry brothers, Brian & Brandon for sending this in!

    I was wondering about these, since that big, bad PA online shop was pushing these like crazy for a while. Sounds pretty nice. One thing I’ve learned not to do with the lanceros is play “Chicken” with the ash. ;)

    I’ve wanted to try this 1 for awhile. I guess I need to pick 1 up. Good review

    Smoked a 5 pack of them over this last week. Construction on mine was much cleaner/neater, smoked exactly as Bryan’s, mine did have a somewhat tight draw at the start then perfect after first inch. Thank you Bryan for you quality reviews!

    Just ordered a box of these last night off of cbid…looking forward to seeing what type of burn and flavors I can get as I smoke one right away, and then age them a bit…nice review Bryan.

    Are cigars FDA regulated? Like, what keeps manufacturers from putting something bad in these things, and who makes sure the cigars handlers hands are clean? We DO put these in our mouths you know, so I would like it to be as bacteria and virus free as possible. Who regulates this stuff?

    • Scriptman44

      Really? The cigars have been sitting around for months, if not years, since the person rolled the cigar. No virus or bacteria can live that long. I’d be more worried about lighting yourself on fire than that!

      Also, no one regulates this per se. I guess you just have to buy quality brands from quality places; or just light up and enjoy!

        Not to be that guy lol but think about it, a dark warm relatively moist humidor could be a great place to grow mold or bacteria. The only thing that isn’t so great is the food. But bacteria are resilient, they can eat lots of things. Oh well.

        • JJO

          Yes, mold can happen. Read up on keeping proper temperature and humidity levels in the humidor to prevent that. As for risks, if you decide to smoke, you do so knowing that there are far worse possible implications than a bug. I’ve never heard of anyone getting sick from smoking a bacteria tainted cigar. Just don’t sit them on your raw chicken. ;)
          And please don’t bring the FDA into this. Their aim is to make smoking as difficult as possible to discourage people from doing it. What keeps the manufactures from tainting their product is their own integrity and knowing their customers won’t put up with it.
