La Barba Petite Lancero Cigar Review
This 6×38 stick features a dark brown buttery firmly packed wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible backwards running seams, double cap and faint tobacco and cedar aroma. First light reveals a tight draw with good medium-full bodied smoke output showing an oily smooth sweet musty tobacco with a campfire like smokiness through the long finish. The first third keeps pouring on the flavor, going to a syrupy caramel, tobacco and earth all very smooth and rich continuing through the long finish with a zing and oil through the mouthfeel. Hitting the 1/2 way mark at 25 minutes flavors change very little just knocking the sweetness down a bit and the overall aftertaste going deeper and darker. Ending at 45 minutes the last third held the same body and flavor but brought in a huge strength rush going to full, more I can handle. It made me a little green and sweaty so watch out! Thank you to viewer John Steckman for sending this along for review I greatly appreciate it!
