Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Lancero Cigar Review

This 7.5×38 stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with minimal veins, a few spots and stretch marks, tight invisible seams, double cap, soft even pack with a dry buttery feel and slight damp wood aroma. First light reveals a fairly snug draw with good medium bodied smoke output showing a big creamy sweet draw with a grass and tobacco taking over the smooth finish, carrying the sweetness through. The first third burns just ok but only after having to take multiple draws to keep it going, the whole thing going soft and very squishy just a few minutes in. Flavors go very blah with just a dirty peppery earth leaving quite a damp aftertaste. 25 minutes in starting the 2nd third performance gets much better, still with a snug draw but putting off normal smoke and back up to a medium body. Flavors are still a peppery damp earth with a long finish. Hitting the band point 45 minutes in performance goes a bit frustrating again needing double puffs to smoke well. The pepper dies down a good bit and the cream comes back on the draw. Ending at just over an hour the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you to viewer Tan for sending this in for review I greatly appreciate it!

    Acrid? Thanks for the review. I’m a lancero fan, but I’ll save my money on this one.

  • Love the new introduction for your reviews Bryan! Great effects and nice music too.
    I won’t be having one of these thanks to your review.
    I’ve searched your reviews for humidors but haven’t really found what I was looking for. Do you have a recommendation for a humidor source? I’m looking for someplace I can find a quality humidor without breaking the bank. Something in the $100-$200 range.

      Cigar.com is great. Just my optinion, i think they take care of their products very well.

        cheaphumidors.com is good too

        • Thanks, I’ll look at them too.

      • Thanks, I’ll check them out.

      I was thinking more like fucking shitty.by the looks of it bryan would have been better of smoking dried up camel shit wrapped in cow manure.

    Really thought this was going to be a good stick. Glad youre getting to the backlog, im anxious to see what you think of the two sticks i send you last year!

    Yeah this blend in lancero is notorious for having issues. Which is a shame since I at least like the Antano 1970 blends.

    A good review and I will stay away from this stick

    Bryan, the word you were looking for is “Acrid.” Google it.

  • tjbear

    I was waiting for the over-the-shoulder toss at the end of the video….oh well!

  • natethebrewer

    Bryan, a little off topic but didn’t no where else to post this…

    Did you know you were named in Famous Smoke’s top 10 bloggers of 2013?


    I found out about it from a Cigar Craig post (who also made the list).

    The new intro is nice, but I keep expecting porn to follow 🙂
