It’s quite unusual to see two lanceros on our Top 25 list, but the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Lancero has earned a spot here for the second time, and this year with a better showing (it was No. 23 in 2017). Any time you read the words “double ligero” on a cigar band from La Flor, you know you’re in for a strong, spicy smoking experience.
And the Lancero did indeed impart all of that, but with this cigar, you also get the sense of an estate and region. The internal tobaccos all came from the same farm in La Canela, a dry, hot area of the Dominican Republic that makes the strong ligero tobaccos even stronger, and the flavors more pronounced.
