Earlier this year an industry veteran, long time shop-owner, and passionate cigar connoisseur Sanj Patel of Sanj’s Smoke Shop (Bloomfield, N.J.) announced the re-launch of the brand he developed and sold throughout the early 90’s and price these the same way they were back then. Blended and produced by Chico Rivas, the Love N’ Passion line uses Corojo-seed tobaccos from various growing regions in the Dominican Republic. The result is a captivating cigar that over-performs its great bang for what’s invested in the blend approach. The ultimate goal was achieved, a solid cigar that didn’t break the smoker’s bank. We’re excited with this partnership as we’re part of a small network of retailers that will carry this product and have it available for our members’ enjoyment. The limited SP1014 Lancero is well-balanced with a lovely texture and punctual flavors. A mildly earthy start is masked by sweet undertones that naturally follow Corojo seed’s evolvement, with a presence of vanilla, honey, a ginger-like spice and overall goodness.
