It’s not every day that a new lancero comes out, but a new lancero that’s also a barber pole is even rarer. That is what is heading to The Cigar Shop, a retailer with two stores in South Carolina and one store in North Carolina.
Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co. has sent the store the new 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole Lancero, a 7 x 38 vitola, which is offered in 10-count boxes and priced at $9.97 per cigar or $99.70 per pack.
As with the 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole Toro, which debuted at The Cigar Shop in December 2017 before becoming a widespread release, the cigar is distinguished by a barber pole wrapper made from a Mexican San Andrés maduro leaf and a candela of undisclosed origin. Under that are a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. Valladares makes the line at his factory in Danlí, Honduras.
The new size is being added as a regular production release.
