Welcome to this weeks review of the La Riqueza Lancero which I got in the 10 count lancero sampler as seen in the above picture. All of these cigars are 7.5×38 and I hope to be doing all of them at some point. Might be some short quick 5-10 minute videos, I am not sure. I talk about it in the video and if you have any suggestions, please throw a comment down below.
This La Riqueza Lancero starts off with wood and cinnamon while staying mild with a spice that hits the back of the throat on the retrohale. Ramps up fast to a medium. Within half an inch. Spice hits every part of the palate with the base woody taste and a subtle bread note. Flavors are consistent with a bit of a minty and chocolatey taste coming into play. Solid medium with full flavor.
Second half of this La Riqueza Lancero starts out with the same flavor profile and smoking beautifully. Minty taste came back once but has not resurfaced in the first part of the second half as of yet. Chocolate taste has become more dominant over the wood but the peppery spice is above all. At the end the woody and peppery profile took back control with a little of the bready taste here and there.
Would I buy it again? Yep. I hope the other nine smoke and burn this well. Really impressed with it.
