The Lyon Cigars brand was created by the Canadian Patrick Nikiema. Many different sizes are produced, including the this Lancero. The blend has not been fully declared by the manufacturer. Distribution covers the US market and some African countries, while for the European market it is distributed only in Luxembourg. The boxes contain 21 cigars.
The cigar is rolled in a slightly opaque Maduro wrapper. To the touch it is slightly rough with fairly present veins. Construction is good, with a closure “pig tail” finish. The draw appears to be slightly tight.

Lyon Cigars Lancero: unlit, aromas of dried fruit and wood are perceived, enriched by an earthy nuance.
Ultimately, this Lyon Cigars Lancero returns a simple but not trivial smoke. The relationship between the flavors and strength is well balanced. It is only slightly disappointing in the final third, when the bitterness impacts the palate to much.
