Size: 7.5×40, Lancero (Laguito Especial).

Wrapper: Reddish milk chocolate, smooth texture with small veins.

Construction: Firm and even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a cedarwood, floral (white flowers), balsamic vinegar sweetness yet tart note & gingerbread spice.

2nd third: No changes in taste but it have gotten out at least twice which is a bit annoying.

Burn: Burns hasty and a little wonky and hasty, with a firm and and stable white-ish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue with a medium light draw.

3rd third: No particular changes in taste just a tad bit more spice like white pepper from the start. Kept going out a few more times and it’s not because of the wind.

Duration: 19:15-20:25, 1h 10min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile, enjoyable but a bit lacking in the complexity and while it kept going out a few times the flavours kept on par.

Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
