I was privileged to have received the Black Gold Lancero from House of Emilio to review. This was exciting as I loved the 1502 Emerald I had a month ago. 1502 cigars described the cigar on their site; “This particular cigar is made to satisfy the discerning smoker who enjoys bold and strong flavors.” A fantastic description that fits this cigar to a T. The super dark brown maduro wrapper has a nice spicy and sweet scent to it. I get a slight hint of pepper from the cold draw. The foot has a partially closed tip which is unique, as I have never seen the foot presented this way before.
Overall a fantastic smoking cigar that is definitely made for the seasoned smoker out there. The pepper is the main component used throughout this cigar but the cocoa really hits your sweet tooth. I would not go near this cigar if you are a light smoker or a newbie, the strength is on the full side all the way through. For the seasoned smokers however, this is a must try.
