I loved this dark double corona. Its a great smoke to end a long day. Take the time to enjoy it.
When I took the cellophane off, I saw what was probably the ugliest premium cigar I've ever seen - dents, divots, lumps, and a funny looking, very dry, two-tone brown/black wrapper, with petrified tips coming unravelled. Undaunted, I sparked it up, and that was even a bit of a chore. It took three touch ups, but soon was burning evenly, leaving a bent, dark grey ash. I was unimpressed with the taste due to its inconsistency - sometimes it was quite good, a touch chocolaty. Other times, I thought I had an overgrown Camel Light in my hand - very hot, harsh draws at times. All in all, very disappointing, especially since I consider the Sancho Panza Dulcinea (the figurado w/ the natural wrapper, always to be found in my humidor) one of my favorites. I will probably stay away from this one - you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
I Padron had a an adopted child, it would be Sancho Panza!0 1
This is the best cigar on the planet. I have smoked others that cost way more than this and they don't even come close to this stick.0 1
These are one of the best cigars you can buy for the money. Excellent constuction, appearance, and taste. You will smoke these down until they burn your fingers.0 1
I really enjoyed this cigar. Great draw, nice white ash and very taste. The wrapper was peppery and the smoke had hints of chocolate in it. For the price, it's definitely a good every-day smoke.0 0
After 2 boxes I simply cannot find anything but praise for the Sancho Panza La Mancha cigars. Pick whatever category you can think of and the score is perfect. If you like the taste of Padron maduros you'll undoubtedly love the La Mancha. The tastes aren't identical, but both have that delicious, even, "all the way home" zest. Get two boxes - these are absolutely Fine! You will be pleasantly amazed. An' Thass a Fac, Jac !0 0
I Ordered this cigar after reading an article online called ?The Ten Best Cigars for Under 2 Dollars.? I ordered a box and I was very surprised! This full bodied Maduro was smooth, great tasting, and was wrapped well. I highly recommend it!0 0
This is an excellent cigar. I'm usually a bit wary of maduros because of the "pepper" and "anise" tastes that you often get, but I got one of these with a sampler and loved it. Bought a box of the La Mancha. Very slow burn - even this little corona lasted a good 45 minutes. Terrific flavors of cocoa and vanilla with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Very smooth and not at all overpowering. I can't think of a better way to spend two bucks.10 3
One cool and cloudless spring midnight, illimitable stars dance on the velvet bay. Shore birds chirp in harmony with the last of the copulating frogs, complimented only by the driftwood embers' prattle of the fire. Sitting with my just-lit Sancho Panza Double Maduro Escudero held loosely in my fingertips, her ambrosial haze drifting with the ghost breeze. The next hour and half that could have been an instant or an eternity; an unforgettable encounter with my new love. Sweet, Spicy, Saucy, ButterNutty, Amazing. Easy light, even burn, unbelievable flavor. Smoke affectionately and puff infrequently. A lasting body buzz afterward.0 0
Everything you want in a good everyday cigar. Great draw and burn along with a yummy taste at a really good price.0 0
