Uncle Paulie’s Deli Lancero Aged 2 Years

Uncle Paulie’s Deli AKA The Good Morning

YO! Let me take you to the hottest city in the country right now: Los Angeles. EVERYONE who is anyone in fashion, film, tech, art, music or design wants to be in LA. Even iconic New Yorkers such as D-nice, Jay-Z and Casey Neistadt are switching teams and moving west. Now let me tell you about Mr. Jon Buscemi. Jon grew up in Long Island New York, skateboarding and listening to hip hop. He is a fellow sneaker collector. He HUSTLES HARD! And after a stint at being a stock broker, he decided it wasn’t for him and he ended up working as a creative in fashion and eyewear for some very iconic brands. He is Italian through and through, and incredibly down to earth and sweet. After building his name and network in the fashion world, he started his own sneaker company called BUSCEMI and became wildly successful. He, like the aforementioned, moved to Los Angeles a few years ago. After surveying the food scene, he decided LA is missing a good Italian NY style deli. He called his cousin Paulie in Queens and the rest is history. Bringing a modern take on the old school Italian deli, the pair created Uncle Paulie’s Deli.

A year later, the who’s who of LA’s non gluten intolerant movers and shakers often lunch at Uncle Paulie’s. Located in the heart of West Hollywood, this is a must eat spot when you visit the City of Angels. Check them out on YouTube for a sneak peak. As for the cigar…Oh Boy!! Ya gonna want to sit down for this. Grown, fermented, rolled and aged by the one and only Jochy Blanco. Jochy is a 4th generation tobacco farmer who owns Tobacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic. Like someone off the silver screen, his character emanates swagger and style. Jochy does it his way. Get ready for possibly the best Dominican Connecticut shade cigar you will ever have. Yes, I said that. Wrapper: Dominican Connecticut Hybrid. Binder: Cuban Seed Ligero. Filler: Cuban Seed and Criollo.

Tasting Notes: On the body, I get oats, sweet tobacco, and half and half cream. The foot is red wine vinegar and dried peach. The cold draw is Cheerios, apricot tea, dried fruits, and sweet grass. The first third is honey nut cheerios, amaretto, green tea, and white pepper. I get some roasted nuts, sweet creamy smoke, and a buttery quality. I keep waiting for the standard Connecticut shade bitterness to arrive and it never happens. Super impressed thus far. The second third begins with hints of florals, sweet croissant, creamy smoke, buttery mouth feel and more of the oats/grain. There is also an ever so slight citrus that reminds me of sprite. The final third gets warmer and rounder in flavor. The almond reappears along with buttered toast. There is a lemongrass citrus and the florals are present as well. Reminds me of chai tea. If I didn’t know any better I would think this is a Cuban cigar in the final third. Pairing notes: Coffee all day. I call this the Good Morning for a reason. Tea with honey. After a breakfast of pancakes or French toast. With an espresso that has some sugar and a lemon rind. With a cream or root beer soda. After an Italian sandwich or a BLT (Uncle Paulie’s makes the best BLT you will ever have). With brandy, bourbon, dry white wine or pilsner beer. With caramel or white chocolate anything or after a bowl of cereal. Please tag @unclepauliesdeli and show some love the Privada way. Next time you are in Los Angeles stop in for a sub and tell them PCC sent you. PEACE!

    Best morning smoke I have had to date and a lancero! Frankly I just wanted to bite into it thinking it was a breadstick.

  2. Scott Thornsbery (verified owner)

    Amazing stick! It definitely is box worthy! This cigar would taste great right after an Italian sub. If you love J. London or Atabey, don’t hesitate and pick up a few and enjoy.

  3. Jason Ylizarde (verified owner)

    one of my favorite sticks to have (either vitola) with a morning coffee…worth stocking up on for sure!

  4. David Kennedy (verified owner)

    Man what a stick to have with a cup of coffee in the morning. Flawless burn, smooth creamy smoke. Will most definitely buy again.

  5. Michael Nevins (verified owner)

    Nothing beats a nice Lancero early in the am or after work!

  6. Ryan Cameron (verified owner)

    Fantastic stick! I have found other great Connecticut’s but under $10, I’ve only had two (Uncle Paulie’s and Henry Clay War Hawk). Hopefully these come back in stock soon

    Another fantastic connie for a morning cigar!
