Cigar Review | A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler. This cigar is the crown jewel of the A.C.E. Prime (A.C.E. stands for A Cuban Experience) portfolio. It’s a nod to co-founder, Luciano Meirelles. The cigar features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper covering an Ecuadorian binder and Ecuadorian and Peruvian fillers with Pelo de Oro. It comes in at 7 x 46 and retails for $17.

Pre-Light

The cold draw gives me graham cracker flavor. Pre-light, the wrapper smells of barnyard and earth, while the foot smells similar with cocoa. Once lit, the first light reveals a general toastiness. Through the nose, flavors turn to grassy toast. The finish gives me cocoa with toast and slight black pepper.

First Third

Forty minutes in, the first third comes to a close. On the draw, I pick up herbal cocoa with cedar. Through the nose, toast blends with a nuttiness and grassy earth. The finish hits me with hints of cocoa, floral notes, and leather. Strength and body settle in at medium-to-full.

Second Third

The second third gets me to an hour and fifteen minutes. The draw sees more cedar and light nutmeg. On the retro-hale, there is more toast with sweet and smoky nuttiness. The finish is delightful with light brown sugar, citrus, and hints of cocoa. Strength and body remain at medium-to-full.

Final Third

Two hours in, the final third wisps away. I find oily leather on the draw with more cedar and added citrus. Through the nose, molasses pairs with floral notes and toast. The finish exudes spicy nutmeg with cocoa and smoky cedar. Strength and body finish out at medium-to-full.

Thoughts

The A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler is a phenomenal cigar. It offers up some serious flavor with solid complexity. Everything blends together exceptionally well, and the cigar simply tastes more refined than most. Construction is top notch with a perfect burn and voluminous smoke output. Price is a little high, but the experience justifies it. I highly recommend giving this one a try.

Smoke on!
