I have never been a fan of Rocky Patel. Let me be honest about that up front. I find this brand overpriced, overhyped and just not that good.
That said, I got the Fusion Lancero in a sampler pack and decided to give it a shot.
This stick burned much too fast for my liking. It was as if it was trying to snuff itself out! The draw was very tight. I had a mind to call one of my plumber friends and borrow their drain snake!
Joking, of course, but I did have to ditch my tip and even then found myself really having to do some deep puffing just to keep this one from going out. It was as if I was working for the cigar!
The smoke was weak throughout, offering no taste to speak of, leaving an aftertaste similar to what I imagine licking an ashtray would be like.
The Fusion is not completely un-smokeable and if you’re given one at a party I’d certainly give it a try, but for the price ($4 a stick) you’d be better off with another selection.
Color me unimpressed on this ‘gar.
