At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, Bombay Tobak unveiled a new installment to its MBombay Vintage Reserve Series. This one is in the form of a lancero containing some very old vintage filler and its called the MBombay Vintage Reserve Lancero 1973.
The blend consists of an Ecuadorian DesFlorado wrapper, a Dominican binder and a combination of Dominican and Peruvian fillers. Owner Mel Shah says there are some very old filler components used in the blend, some dating back to prior to 1973. “Smoke it and see,” commented Shah.
The DesFlorado wrapper is the same one found on the other installment in the Vintage Reserve Series – the MBombay KeSara Vintage Reserve Nikka.
The lancero itself is in the company’s signature lancero vitola size – an 8 1/2 x 38. The cigar itself is covered with a large cedar sleeve extending from the footer to the band. The cigars are packaged in 25 count boxes. The cigar has limited production gated by the availability of the aged tobacco components.
The MBombay Vintage Reserve 1973 Lancero is currently now heading to retailers.
