Pinar Del Rio Classico Exclusivo Review
Pinar Del Rio Classico Exclusivo Lancero - 7 X 38. W-Connecticut (Ecuadorian), Binder-Habano (Dominican), Filler-Nicaraguan. I found this cigar to be medium bodied. I really enjoy Lancero size vitolas because you really get a predominate taste of the wrapper and with the Ecuadorian Connecticut, you get a nice peppery taste with a creamy, woodsy undertone. As the cigar progressed, I picked up a very nice light creamy coffee taste as well. I even got some notes of cinammon which I really like. About 2/3 into this cigar, the pepper subsided a bit and a tea-like quality came into the cigar. With about 2 inches left, the pepper came back with full force to remind you that it is still there with with the creamy coffee & woody flavor. Construction, draw & burn was perfect and that was with smoking outside here in NY with a windy 45 degrees. I recommend trying this line.
