These came n a while back and I’ve been sitting on a few of them in the new lancers size, along with some of the minis which also are reblended.
As you know, Don Cervantes is a luxury blend put out by ACC Cigars and tend to consist of aged tobaccos, some of which may be as old as 50 years n age. The cost of their cigars is due in part to the age of the tobacco and the skill required to roll tobacco that old.
Per usual, the cigar has an even burn. The pre-light notes are typical of raisin and light stone fruit, but a torch to toast the foot reveals a semi-sweet smelling smoke. The first draw is easy, and the burn line is razor straight. Nots of wood, pepper, intense leather and hints of oak come from the cigar at various points, but the pepper and spice remain up front.
A medium finish with an easy draw makes this an even better cigar for those who don’t prefer the stronger taste of maduros.
