Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Lancero

Initial Thoughts:

Over the past couple of years, I've developed a love/hate relationship with My Father Cigars. Some of Don Pepin's sticks I love. Others, well, not so much. But today we're smoking and reviewing the My Father La Promesa Lancero.

One of the first things I notice about this cigar is the flattened pigtail end. After cutting the pigtail with my guillotine, the cold draw flavors were very mild.

Through the first third, the burn was almost razor-sharp, the draw was fantastic, and the flavors were creamy with hints of spice.

Final Thoughts:

After smoking the My Father La Promesa Lancero for right about 90 minutes, I have to say that the experience was mostly pretty good. Mostly.

The first 75% of the cigar was great. The cigar burned well, it had a wonderful draw and great flavors. However, in the final third, the burn became uneven, the wrapper leaf started to tear, and the flavors became almost bland, then harsh.

At the end of the day, I enjoyed this cigar despite its minor flaws. And, for $11, you can experience this cigar for a solid hour and a half. I like the flavors and the value of this cigar, and I'd smoke it with you, so the My Father La Promesa Lancero earns a CigarScore 4.
