In April 2019, Privada Cigar Club received an exclusive lancero size of Sinistro Cigar’s Last Cowboy Maduro line; this summer it’s getting a lancero in the Last Cowboy Connecticut line.

Like the maduro version, this new vitola measures 7 x 40, and like the four other sizes in the line, uses a Connecticut shade-grown wrapper, dual binder of Cameroon and Ecuadorian habano leaves while the filler comes from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru. It is also finished off with a small strip of candela tobacco that closes the foot of the cigar.

A total of 8,440 cigars were produced in Dec. 2019 at the La Aurora Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic, and while some will be included in Privada Cigar Club’s August cigar of the month shipment, there will be some available for purchase as well. Pricing is set at $11 per cigar, and they are offered in 20-count bundles.

It joins the other four regular production sizes in the line:

  • Sinistro Cigars The Last Cowboy Churchill (7 x 47)
  • Sinistro Cigars The Last Cowboy Corona (5 1/2 x 42)
  • Sinistro Cigars The Last Cowboy Petite Belicoso (5 x 52)
  • Sinistro Cigars The Last Cowboy Toro (6 x 54)

A representative from Sinistro Cigars told halfwheel that the company is considering making the lancero a regular production size, but did not set a timeline for when that might happen.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
