In late 2006, when Rocky Patel's Fusion was rapidly climbing the charts, nipping at the ankles of his own Vintage series, he was on to the next challenge: creating yet another unique handmade, the Double Maduro Lancero. As the name implies, the cigar utilizes two wrapper-quality Broadleaf Maduro leaves for extra richness. One is used as the wrapper, the other as the binder, which is typically a coarse, purely functional leaf. With its dark, oily, toothy appearance and its slight box press, this stick is a beauty. Handmade in Nicaragua, the blend is comprised of well-aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long-leaf ligeros. The result is a complex medium- to full-bodied smoke with heavy notes of chocolate toast and espresso. Look for a long-lasting, spicy sweetness on the finish. The draw is excellent, the burn even. This is one you can enjoy down to the nub. Pair it with a VSOP Cognac or Armagnac.
