Quick Smoke: La Palina Classic Lancero

18 Mar 2018

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.”

Often overlooked in La Palina’s now-expansive portfolio is the La Palina Classic. The line has been updated with three wrapper varieties (Rosado, Maduro, and Connecticut) in three sizes each (Robusto, Toro, Lonsdale) made at General Cigar Dominicana. Today, though, I’m smoking the orginal Classic blend in a Lancero size ($8), which was made at PDR Cigars with a Brazilian Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The cigar features balanced, medium-bodied, roasted notes: coffee, cream, milk chocolate, cashews, and light cedar. Lanceros have a tendency for finicky construction, but this one was razor straight from start to finish.

Verdict = Buy.
