This 7.5×38 lancero features a dark chocolate oily toothy wrapper, feeling like gritty sandpaper. It has a couple small veins, tight seams, a small pigtail cap and a rich chocolate aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good medium-full bodied smoke production showing flavors of a thick almost chewy slightly sweet earth and pepper. The first thirds adds quite a bit of heat and spice to the mix, leaving a tingle and spice on the lips. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, the ash has been holding on an inch at a time, construction is flawless and flavors are the same but very creamy and mellow. A bit of chocolate is creeping in, and the finish is the same as the draw lasting well until the next draw. Ending at 1:15 the last third loosened the draw and burned faster after the band point, keeping the same profile just getting warmer. Thank you very much to viewer James Glenn for providing this for review!
