Today’s cigar was provided to me by the folks at PD Cigars located in Atlanta GA. The cigar is the Lancer which comes is at 38 X 6 1/2 inches. The wrapper is Brazillian maduro, and the binderis Dominican along with a Dominican, Nicaraguan, Cuban seed filler. In my observation of this cigar, I found it to be well wrapped with no signs of imperfections. I did though however found the cigar to be soft in certain spots, but I must make it clear that this cigar did not spend anytime in my humidor and with the recent weather “HOT!” I believe this could have something to do with it. Ok with that finished, it was time to smoke this baby.
Now it was time for the clip and toasting phase. Clipping this cigar went well after I cut the pig tail away from the end of this baby (Nice touch Laz). The toasting phase was easy and this cigar took right off with loads of clear smoke which was obtained from the easy draw.
The flavors of this cigar consisted of spices which were easy to detect right off the bat. I also detected a creamy buttery flavor on my pallet that seem to be followed by a nut creamy flavors. I have to tell you that I was very impressed by this cigar. The flavors seem to just keep coming and that is important because it keeps things interesting.
The ash on this cigar was grayish and seem flaky but kept its own due to the way this cigar was constructed (Very nice). The cigar had an even burn as well which contributed to my smoking enjoyment.
So, I sure you all know how this review is going to end so without further ado here is my final verdict.
