Leaf by Oscar Adding Lancero in November


The Leaf by Oscar line will be adding a limited edition lancero vitola to all four of its blends in early November, but don’t expect to see it everywhere. The new size will only be made available to approximately 50 retailers in the United States, according to Jim Robinson, owner of Leaf & Bean in Pittsburgh, Pa. and the distributor of the Leaf by Oscar line.

Currently, the Leaf by Oscar is only offered in a 6 x 50 toro or 6 x 60 vitola, so this new size is a departure from what existing customers have seen. The new size will retain the Honduran binder and filler while being offered with four wrapper options: Honduran Connecticut, Nicaraguan Jalapa Maduro, Honduran Corojo or Ecuadorian Sumatra. Regardless of the wrapper, each cigar will sell for $8.50 before taxes, and like the other sizes, the lancero will come wrapped in a tobacco leaf.


The list of retailers who will carry the new lancero has not been disclosed, nor have production numbers or packaging options.

The cigars are made at Oscar Vallardares’ factory in Danlí, Honduras.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
