Quick Smoke: CyB Lancero Fino

7 Jul 2013

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Since its inception, I’ve enjoyed the CyB line (formerly Cuenca y Blanco), the first blend from Joya de Nicaragua to use binders and fillers from countries other than Nicaragua. So I was encouraged to hear the company is adding to the line with a Lancero that will be exclusively available to members of the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA). (I received this sample from Joya de Nicaragua, but the TAA exclusive cigars will feature a secondary TAA band around the foot.) The Lancero (7 x 38) seems to have a looser draw than other CyB sizes, which makes for a slightly milder cigar, although the same flavors I’ve come to enjoy from this blend are largely the same: dry oak, cedar, floral notes, roasted nuts, leather, and spice. If you like the lancero format, this is a must-try.

Verdict = Buy.
