Latitude Zero Experimental

It’s alive!

Where would we be as a species if Sir Isaac Newton never had that apple fall on his head, or if Benjamin Franklin had decided, “No, I don’t feel like experimenting with my metal key and kite in this lightning storm tonight.” I for one certainly couldn’t even imagine, and that’s why I’m delighted to take on my own experiment and apply massive discounts to these prices—that’s right look at our price vs MSRP, and see the monstrous deal I’ve created. Some may say I'm mad, but they haven't put me in the looney bin yet.

Experimental Blend is a home run, and is poised to surpass even the original Latitude Zero core line, which would be no easy task. Graced with that extraordinary, easy on the eyes Ecuadorian Cameroon wrapper from 2009 that is literally one-of-a-kind hailing from the fertile farms of Oliva Tobacco Company. Underneath this fine cloak, a rare Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 binder from Oliva’s La Joya farm envelopes a mix of Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 long-fillers. Medium-bodied and brimming with nuances of cedar, sweet-spice, and oak, all at an outstanding price, Latitude Zero Experimental Blend is one experimental success.

These are really good.
I took a chance on these and was not disappointed! I have tried and liked the other Latitude Zero cigars that I have bought in the past. Well constructed and it burned nicely. The best part was the taste. Has a great flavor, but not too heavy. These are in the top shelf of my humidor!

Great lancero.
Rich, well constructed, smokes well, what else are you looking for? I tried the lancero. Good draw, yet didn't burn too fast. Still developed a nice rich flavor, despite the thin profile. One of my favorite lanceros.

Almost a Successful Experiment
This would easily be a five star if it weren't for the ridiculous ring. The fragile but tasty wrapper tears when removing it (which of course you have to do). What a shame!

Unless it's just a made-up name, I find the Latitude Zero to be an excellent smoke, easy drawing, and pleasant to the taste.

Not Bad
Tastes like the fall season. Not a bad stick for the price

Different in a good way
I like it better than the original Lat Zero. And I really like that one. The Cameroon wrapper is what makes this one so special. I'm not real good at identifying the flavor undertones but ceder is unmistakable here. It is full of flavor but easy to smoke with no bitterness or lightheadedness. This is my new favorite.

Latitude Zero Experimental Lancero
I love the cigar. I have a preference for the lancero size, although I would consider it more of a lonsdale. It smokes smooth and consistent for me, and the price is right! I'm curious to know why they come of a 10 count box. However you plan to keep them in stock, you have a longtime customer in me.

Watch out Clint Eastwood
Ever since I saw my first Clint Eastwood western, I've been intruiged by the Lancero size, but there aren't a whole lot out there. So I was interested to see that Lat Zero offered one. I've smoked a few of their other sizes and was impressed enough with the brand, and was a bit surprised to see a Lancero show up. I really like the feel. The strength is on the mild side of Med, but the taste is great. Because of the size, it's a lot of fun to smoke. I think there will be a few boxes on my next order.

Quite good for the price, tear the comically large band easy
Bought this on sale. From the description I could tell this would be a cigar that I would most likely enjoy. The comically large wrapper didn't tear my cigar like some said. I did let it heat up 1st and slowly tore off the wrapper. This did not cause the tobacco to rip off. I will say it was a very smooth draw and not overpowering in the flavor category. Just a very good tobacco flavor. I sometimes struggle to find the differences in flavors of cigars. I just know what I like and if a flavor tastes good then I will buy again . I will most likely purchase another box or two of these just because after smoking them I fully enjoyed my experience with the limited release cigar. Hopefully they will make more like these in the future.

Overblown Cameroon hype
I was a little disappointed in the smoke I expected at least a good profile of the nice Cameron with sweet spiciness this was just a flat cigar but not much flavor at all I definitely prefer real Cameron wrapped cigars not the Ecuadorian Cameroon

I bought these the first
I bought these the first time because they would available for a brief period of time and I probably couldn’t get them again. They were a pretty large ring size and I brought them for a get together with friends. They were a lighter bodied cigar then those I usually get, but they were good . There was a slightly bitter taste at the beginning and end of the smoke, which I wasn’t crazy about. They were not in a class like a RP vintage 1990, Diesel unholy cocktail or Ave Maria, but were pleasant.

Sweet change for a Maduro, Ligero, Oscuro, Corojo, Criollo type guy!
I just smoked one of these today. I first tasted one in a sample or free bonus gift that CI so generously gives out and was intrigued by the sweetness, depth, and flavors. The atypical and seemingly light wrapper for me made this skeptic say wow!!! I really like this. On top of the taste, the nice draw and good burn moved me to store it in my humidor at the great sale price.

I have purchased these numerous times and gifted many to friends. Everyone agrees it is one solid smoke. Great burn, great flavor, and just an enjoyable smoke. And affordable as heck too! Use your savings to buy a stupid bacon wallet!
Customer Testimonials
A good cigar, but not as good as the original Latitude Zero. The major problem I encountered is the 3 to 4 inch wide band on the cigar which can not be removed without destroying the delicately thin wrapper. Same result no matter whether you remove before lighting when cigar is cold or after lighting and letting burn line get close to band and cigar is warm which should soften the glue....
This is a great cigar, very smooth, creamy, nutty, and barely hits medium body. I really enjoyed this one. Unfortunately, the band is the only drawback. Like others mentioned, you have to be extremely careful when removing the band. Mine had too much glue, which resulted in me peeling a piece of leaf off the wrapper.
This was a phenomenal cigar. One of the few I have smoked down below the one inch mark. Note: I did have to use a small sharp knife to get the very large label off without damaging the leaf.
The smoke is dry on the tongue and palate and there is a metallic aftertaste to the smoke that I find off-putting. The comically large band is almost impossible to remove without damaging the fragile wrapper.
What a nice smoking cigar, for the most part. It smoked nicely with great flavor the whole way down. Though I usually prefer a more full cigar, this was very good for a medium. However, they need to rethink the wrapper as it was glued to the cigar and caused some damage upon removal, causing a weird burn in that area. Overall though, worth the smoke!
I got a 5-pack free when I bought a box of the regular Latitude Zero about 4 months ago. I've smoked two so far, (just finished one), and had no issue with the band sticking to the wrapper on either one. The cigar is good-looking, well constructed, draws nice and easy, and burns slowly and evenly. But to my taste, the flavor seems a bit off. I don't know if it's just the Ecuador instead of a true Cameroon wrapper, but it tastes "green" to me, as if it needs more aging. I think I will let the other three rest for a year or so and re-visit them then. But not to worry, I can still enjoy my go-to Cameroon smoke, the Black Pearl Moardo. A wonderfully flavorful and enjoyable cigar at an equally wonderful price at C. I. Very highly recommended. By the way, the regular Latitude Zero is also a very good cigar. You can read my review of it and the Morado, too.
I purchased 10 of these to give them a try. I've had 3 so far, and each and every time that humongous band has split the wrapper while taking it off. Not worth the trouble or frustration to keep this up. The cigar actually tastes good, but you have flaking, flaming ash to deal with when it gets to the torn wrapper sections.
Fantastic. Don't even waste your time with a 5 pack, just get a box. One thing against it, you have to be very careful taking off the band or you risk damaging that beautiful wrapper leaf.
This is a very fine medium-bodied smoke that has a slow even burn and just a hint of sweetness that complements the mellow oak from start to finish. I normally smoke medium to full-bodied cigars tending towards full but decided to try a 5-pack of this one. It will be an exception as long as it's available. My only complaint is the you must be careful taking off the paper wrapper band or it can damage the wrapper leaf...
The Latitude Zero Toro I smoked was interesting, the mild nuttiness of the Cameroon seed leaf and the more bright and spicy filler left me wondering what this cigar was trying to be. Complex, but not in a way I prefer, the flavors seemed incongruous and counterproductive. The draw, burn and construction was perfect and if you like these flavors together, you may like this cigar.
Without a doubt one of the finest most well balanced Cameroon wrappers, simply gorgeous. Hurry don't cheat yourself, get this one PDQ before I buy them all...outstanding cigar.
