possibly my favorite cigar size . . . my only problem is February is still minutely the center of frozen hell for people like me in the midwest - hence still on short smokes/pipes
Totally understand, but it wasn't I who selected the month.

We are going from 0 degrees today to the 60's this weekend here in KC so I will be able to get in one on Saturday and Sunday. I have missed out on the last couple of Lancero February's due to different reasons so I have a nice selection saved up and looking forward to smoking one of my favorite size cigars. Thanks for the contest!

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.

? Count ?
"They" call it a lancero.
And honestly they're damn good right now too. Well, at least 6 months ago they were.
