Cohiba Lancero

April 17, 2012 Puffing No Comments

I was fortunate to acquire a box of one of the most elegant cigars in the world, Cohiba Lancero.

Long (7.6″) and skinny (38), these guys are famed for starting life as Fidel Castro’s personal smokes. Produced in 1964 and named in 1969. Up until the early 1980s, they were exclusively given as diplomatic gifts. It was not until 1984 when they were made available for public consumption.

Really like the box.

I like that opening the box is an event.

And there they are. The vitola is Laguito No. 1.

Bottom of the box. This is a relatively new box, so like wine, these cigars will need to be put down for some ageing. Not lighting these right away is going to be a great exercise in self-constraint.

Cheers!
