Picked up one of these at a quality local shop after looking at several reviews - brand has reputation for goodness at an exceptional price point - which may change as these are smoked and demanded...they're that good. Get a box while price is still low. Very nice point construction and overall look and color but the test is in the taste and they don't disappoint. Rich, smooth, lovely draw and burn. Can't comment on the consistency, as I've only tried the one but I can't imagine what you're waiting for - well, I did lay mine down for a few weeks prior to smoking (it always seems to make a difference) but it will be hard to wait for the next.
I received this cigar in a sampler and took it for a spin. First the good points. I was very impressed with this cigar's construction. The construction was excellent and it did burn very evenly. The draw was solid as well. Bad part.....there was no flavor. It was damn near flavorless. Very disappointing. I would pass this up even if you receive it in a sampler.
Amazing smell, amazing taste, slow burn and great quality.
Don't let the reasonable price fool you. This cigar is about as good as a medium strength cigar gets. Good and complex flavors. Always good construction. Llaneza hit this one out of the park.
This is my go to Cigar if I'm not sure what to grab I grab this one. It has a nice cedar note and is a consistent easy smoke. Please tell them to stop lacquering the inside of the box NOT a good idea I move the cigars to another box as soon as I get them in.
Feel and construction of a $16 stick, burn and draw of a $12 piece and the taste of an $8 big name fancy band brand. But only it's $3.50!!!
Tried 1 and was amazed. Thought I should try another before I bought a box just to make sure. 2nd one was better than the first!! Smooth, creamy, nutty, complex, excelent draw, even burn; a near perfect cigar. New favorite.
GLORIOSA! Has a place with my Valiente's. This cigar is a perfect size, balance, burn, and taste. Just a delight to come home to or smoke any time. Earthy rewards from a brilliant roll, with cocoa notes and an absolute wonderful aroma. Bravo! --Makes me think about running off to Honduras and becoming a roller myself.
My local tobacconist just started to carry this line so I bought 5 of these to try. The cigars are medium to full bodied, and are a pure pleasure to smoke. It has a mild peppery flavor and a light leathery undertone that I find pleasing to the palate. The cigar is exceptionally well constructed and burns very even with a good draw. I smoke my cigars to the band, and of the 5 cigars that I purchased and smoked, one had a had a harsh finish but the other four remained smooth and consistent to the end. I would rate these as a 8.9 or 9 on a 10 point scale. I strongly recommend this fine cigar.
THIS CIGAR TASTES MORE CUBAN THAN CUBANS! ABSOLUTELY PHENOMINAL TASTE, APPEARANCE, AND CONSTRUTION. I CHOOSE THIS CIGAR ABOVE ALL OTHERS IN MY COLLECTION. RICH, FULL, DELICIOUS, AND UNMATCHED IN ANY CATAGORY, SANCHO PANZA MAKES YOUR MOUTH FEEL ALIVE. *YOU MUST HAVE THIS CIGAR IF YOU HAVE ANY.
A nice complex smoke. Great burn and draw. I ve smoked them with up to a year in the humidor, and they remain excellent.
