The Cain F Lancero is packaaged in aluminum tubes and sold in the Limited Edition Studio Tobac Cigar Sampler. This is the only lancero sold in the tubo format. The effort and time taken into producing the lancero version of the Cain F is best said by John Gazerro:
“I really don’t care if anyone else likes this cigar. I love lanceros so I’ll smoke every one of them myself. The blend on this cigar is fantastic. They nailed it at the factory.” says Executive Board member John Gazerro. “Seriously, lanceros are the perfect size for something limited like this. It’s not a size that sells well, but it’s probably the most respected size in the super-elite cigar community.” Gazerro continued “This cigar isn’t for novices. It’s definitely strong; but the real aficionados will appreciate the huge flavor and lack of harshness.”
Well Mr. Gazerro you shouldn’t worry that no one will like the Cain F Lancero and you certainly won’t being smoking them all.
The Look: Has this peaked your interest? It should. The Studio Tobac Cain F Lancero Tubo smoked for this review came fromm a box with a clear lid displaying ten Cain F Lanceros inside styled red aluminum tubes prominently reading Cain F Straight Ligero with a fitting yellow cap. Braking the seal and taking out one of these tubes and unscrewing the cap it showed to hold a 7 x 38 well constructed mid range brown cigar with with some prominent veins.
The Start: This cigar gave off an aroma of spice, cinnamon, pine, and a mixture of earthy barnyard hay tones and the foot gave beheld an aroma of spice and barnyard. After v-cutting the cap the predraw produced spice, light red pepper, and barnyard flavors. Lighting the Cain F Lancero and taking a few initial draws flavors of caramelized sugar, spice, and a dominate woodiness was present.
