SWAG Elite Lancero Cigar Review

This 7×38 stick features a dark tan wrapper with a dry smooth feel, firm pack, small veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and sweet wood and hay aroma. First light reveals a good draw with full bodied flavors of a peppery spicy deep wood with an slick long finish. The first third burns very well as expected from any lancero. Body is still way up with the same naturally sweet deep wood core but the pepper and spice has ramped up. It’s not an intense heat but like a big dose of white pepper, sticking around all the way to the next draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes in, the pepper calms down significantly, leaving a slicker medium-full body with the wood core and a sweet earthy finish. Ending at 1:05 the last third kept the same great construction ans flavor profile but significantly brought down the strength hammer, matching the body at a medium-full making me quite light headed and buzzed. Thank you very much to viewer Bennett for sending this sample in I greatly appreciate it!

    I recently decided to the lancero vitola. The Oliva series V lancero to be exact. I was immediately hooked. I went on a Lancero, and Lonsdale Trying almost every one they had available at my B&M. There just better, almost every time. I am totally converted. I find I have no desire to buy larger ring cigars now. It just makes me wonder why so many blends do not come in a Lancero or Lonsdale size.

    Thanks for the review. Decided to get some based solely on the review. Haven’t tried any of this size so I’m looking forward to it.

    Hey bro, glad you enjoyed reviewing this. I’ve found I’m partial to the Dominicans over the Nicos and this is a Dominican Puro. Definitely enjoy the lancero and lonesdale sizes also.

  • these remind me of a la flor dominicana double ligero maybe even tastier I think maybe because of my low expectations of this cigar
