We all know how busy life can get; even overwhelming at times. With that in mind, we would like to re-introduce “Short Reviews” which only take a couple minutes to read and hopefully provide a small break for you during your day. So, without further ado, please enjoy our short review of the Coronado by La Flor Lancero (Serious Cigars Exclusive)!
In 2008, Serious Cigars in Houston, TX approached Litto Gomez of La Flor Dominicana about producing a Lancero format of the Coronado by La Flor. Litto’s response: “I can do that.” And so the Coronado by La Flor Lancero was born!
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun Grown Jalapa
Binder: Dominican Corojo
Filler: Dominican Sumatra
Vitola: Lancero (7.5×39)
Construction: This Lancero is simply beautiful, it is rather light in weight but seems to be packed well with no soft spots and a great cap with a bit of a pigtail.
Flavor: White pepper, cedar, and rich tobacco fill the smoke to start the cigar off with subtle molasses on the finish and a bit of cinnamon on the retrohale. As the cigar progresses a bit, notes of cocoa and leather appear with a soft undertone of dried cherry. Towards the end, the strength increased a touch with earth notes and white pepper taking prominence along with the persistent rich tobacco flavor that adds a beautiful depth to the flavor profile.
Closing Thoughts: The Coronado by La Flor Lancero is an incredibly rich and deeply complex cigar with flawless construction, which is very impressive for any cigar, especially a Lancero. The burn was even, ash was solid, and flavor was wonderful. My only complaint is that I can’t find more!
