The Lost City Lancero measures 7 ½ x 41. The Lost City line also comes in various other sizes: the 4 9/16 x 50 Love Affair, the 5 3/8 x 48 Robusto, the 5 ¾ x 48 Double Robusto, the 6 1/8 x 50 Piramide, and the 6 ¾ x 48 Toro. The rare Lancero and Love Affair sizes were supposedly released as a tribute to Andy Garcia. All of the sizes have similar compositions, but they do vary a bit in flavor since their blends had to be adjusted to accommodate their different shapes. All of the cigar's components are made up of Dominican tobacco, including a summer-grown wrapper that is supposed to give the Lost City complexity in terms of flavor. As stated earlier, the tobacco used was originally intended just for filming purposes. It has also been aged for five years before being put into production. Fuente lists the Lost City as being medium to full-bodied in strength.

There is plenty to talk about when it comes to the Lost City Lancero's appearance. From top to bottom, this is one attractive stick. It's also quite thin and long. The light-brown wrapper is incredibly smooth and features hardly any imperfections whatsoever. There are a few veins that are visible, but that's about it. A slight oily sheen is visible when the Lost City is placed under direct light and is brings out the cigar's smoothness nicely. The cigar is topped off with a neat pigtail cap, and there are two extravagant bands that decorate its body. The top band has a large X stamped on it that is surrounded by intricate graphics in gold, black, and red. The second band denotes the Lost City tag in black and gold. The bands themselves tend to give the cigar a somewhat of an Indiana Jones motif. The cigar is firm to the touch but not too stiff. No soft spots are present at all. Before lighting, it has an peppery aroma and an earthy cold taste.

The solid appearance of the Lost City carries through with its solid burn. It does appear as if it may want to stray to the uneven side, but it corrects itself. There are no touch-ups necessary. The same holds true for any re-lighting as well. The white ash is a bit flaky due to the cigar's shape, but that's acceptable.
