    LANCERO FEBRUARY!

    Just under a week away from everybody's favorite month where we smoke the long and skinny cigars which take 2 hours to burn while most of the country is still freezing!

    Lancero February is a celebration of what is considered to be the connoisseur's vitola. Some say the lancero is the perfect ratio of filler/binder/wrapper. Prone to construction issues, known to go out frequently and require relights, incredibly easy to smoke too quickly due to it's small ring gauge; A demanding vitola which requires the smoker to concentrate his/her attention fully on the stick...

    But sometimes great demands = great rewards, and I want to share the rewards with you. As is customary, this February I will be smoking one lancero everyday and I want you to do the same. So I'm running a contest and every BOTL member in good standing is eligible to participate. It's real simple smoke a lancero each day and get a raffle entry. At the end of the month I will randomly pick four winners who will receive a random 5-pack of premium sticks including one of these bad boys:

    So who's in?


    CONTEST RULES

    *To enter post a picture of your smoke in this thread. Make sure you tell us what brand/name/marca the stick is so we know what you are smoking.

    * You may submit one entry every day between February 1 and February 28, for a maximum of 28 entry's per person. Any entry's submitted before or after the contest dates will not be counted.

    * Each submission to the contest must be a different cigar. For example, If you smoke 25 Headley Grange Drumsticks and post the pics you will get 1 entry into the contest, not 25! An exception will be made for cuban cigars and LE's, for which you can enter one from each vintage year.

    *Contest is open to any member in good standing on BOTL.

    *Winners will be chosen by random number generator and be posted in the Contest forum sometime after February 28.

    WHAT IS A LANCERO?

    From my research for this contest a lancero falls into the panatela family.
    See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factory_name#Factory_Names_and_Sizes

    To open the contest up to a wider number of participants, and because not every lancero is a Laguito No. 1 (7 1/2" x 38), especially in the NC world, I will be accepting entries in a few of the panatela categories.

    To put it simply, your entry:
    Must be at least 5" in length.
    Must not be smaller than a 36 ring gauge.
    Must not be larger than a 40 ring gauge.

    I’ll trade you for a box of BHK52s. But you gotta throw in some REs to sweeten the pot, LOL.
