Room 101 Master Collection Three Mutante Cigar Review

This 7×38 lancero features a dark chocolate, smooth, firmly packed slightly oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a triple coiled cap and rich cocoa and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with copious amounts of thick creamy, chewy full bodied smoke with smooth flavors of a zingy meatiness, soft earth, slight pepper and sweetness with a long finish.  The first third brings a big creamy leather in while the rest of the blend continues all the way through the finish with perfect construction.  The ash drops in big 2″ chunks and by the 1/2 way point 35 minutes in, the leather is replaced by a dark chocolate and coffee while some heat is added to the oily finish.  Ending at the hour mark, the last third drops the cream just leaving the deeper cocoa and coffee flavors while the finish drops the pepper and spice staying long and smooth.  That’s what she said.

Thank you to Room 101 for providing this sample for review!

    Once again a great review of a very good cigar

    Just an FYI, “mutante” means pretty much what it sounds like, “mutant”. I have no idea why they call it that or what it is a mutation of but with my Spanish knowledge (pretty low), that’s what the name means.

      Well since it says “Three Mutations” I am gonna go with it has three different flavor transitions, since mutation doesn’t have to mean mutant, but rather a change.

        Upon looking, they have a 1 and 2 also, so this is likely just the third series of their “mutation” cigar probably named this for its flavor transitions instead of staying one note the whole way through.

    This sounds wonderful. Maybe save it for The Cigar Obsession Ultra Premium Sampler Part 2, not that the HIdden Treasure 2 is doing so well.

    I just pulled the trigger on a box! I hope it gets here in time for the big herf at my house this coming weekend!!!

    Going to have to try this one. This would actually be a good idea for a future sampler pack that you put together: favorite lanceros.
