50. Bespoke Cigars Traditional Grand Café Limited Edition (Lancero)

Sponsored by Bespoke Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors.

Wrapper: A luscious dark chocolate, oily wrapper.

Construction: A little spongy but it feels well filled with tobacco.

Cold draw: A rich note of 70-80% cacao and hay.

1st third: Instantly greated with the rich flavours of 70-80% dark chocolate, a earthy and leathery notes fill the mouth. There is a slight hint of white pepper as I go for a puff. A very robust taste as I dive in to the first part.

2nd third: Entering the second part, the white pepper is showing more on top of the tounge and the other flavours from the first part are more hidden in the background.

The burn: Burns well as long as you don’t forget to puff. The ash is white and firm.

Smoke: It’s light and quite warm to the touch.

3rd third: It’s well consistent on the flavours, keeps the same all through.

Conclusion: It’s a full bodied cigar, maybe a bit to much for my palette, but definitely an interesting evening smoke. So if you are into a heavy cigar, this is definitely something for you. I’m a fan of the regular Grand Café, with its toasty and more round feeling, so I’m a little disappointed. But hey not all cigars can suit me.

Result: In my book this is a 87 points cigar.

49. Bespoke Cigars Basilica C No.2 (Lancero)

Sponsored by Bespoke Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate brown, sandy feeling with tiny veins.

Construction: A little spongy but it’s evenly distributed tobacco.

Cold draw: Hay, almonds, cedarwood.

1st third: It starts with a shaggyfoot or for you that don’t know what it is, it’s when you get a bit at the end that has no wrapper so you just get the taste of the filler and binder. So it starts with a chocolate orange tone, a hint of pencil wood. After a cm in the wrapper joins in, now you get a combination of ginger and nutmeg with the initial tastes aswell.

2nd third: most of the flavours are still there, but now I’m starting to feel a white pepper feeling on my lips. It feels almost like smoking a gingerbread man, you have the nuts, the citrus, ginger, a little bit of cinnamon. I really like this, very interesting.

The burn: Really steady and sharp burn. The ash was a little flaky at first but firmed up after the shaggyfoot. It’s white as chalk.

Smoke: Very voluminous and fluffy like a cloud. It’s also cool to the touch.

3rd third: into the 3rd part there is no more gingerbread, it’s more like a dark oak, with a sponge cake with a touch of citrus.

Conclusion: Very pleasant and interesting flavours. I haven’t smoked anything like it before and I would love to try it again. It’s definitely a medium to full bodied cigar.

Result: In my book this is a 92 points cigar.
