The terms “lancero” and “panatela” both refer to the same cigar, an elegant shape and size that is usually at least 6 inches long — often 7 — and has a narrow ring gauge of between 34 and 38. They can be delightfully mellow or quite robust depending on the tobacco chosen, which in the case of the Joya de Nicaragua Antano Lancero is pure Nicaraguan tobacco that produces a rich, bold, peppery profile.
