This cigar is very attractive: nice box-pressed construction, good fuerte color. The burn is well above average for cigars in this price range. I have only had a few relights, and those can probably be attributed to some slow smoking on my part. This cigar is much more powerful than it looks. The taste is dominately "tobacco." It does have a nice, full smoke with lots of flavor, but there is a strong, spicy taste of fuerte tobacco that will immediately turn-off most inexperienced smokers (and many experience smokers that like mild cigars). If you like full-bodied, and you liked the general taste of cigar tobacco without all that frilly vanilla-mint-cherry stuff, this is definately a cigar for you. All of my experienced smoker friends have loved it, while my less-experienced ones have typically quit half-way through. Highly recommended as a strong cigar to keep in your humidor.
I don't understand how these cigars got such a lofty rating. Construction, draw, and burn were very good but I didn't taste anything. I smoked an entire box, with some of the cigars, having been in the humi over two months. I have to smoke inexpensive cigars for everyday purposes and most of my experiences have fallen in line with the ratings here. This, for me, was an exception.
These are great cigars,they have become my favorite. Some may be turned off because they are so affordable. If you are in need of the air of exclusivity I suggest lighting them with FIVE DOLLAR BILLS ! Great cigars that no one should shy away from trying.
This cigar out performs national and higher priced named brands big time.Sancho Panza has truly out done themselves with cigar. if you like sun grown and want all the flavor with out breaking the bank, you really should try this..This cigar is in both my humidors and back stocked like my AB Maxx and Nording"s in My Local Tobacconist smoke shop locker by the boxes..
"Boy O' Boy" Very Pleasant smoke. Dark, rich, and great construction. These will be one of my regulars after a nice dinner, and for a weekend of tuna fishing with my buddies! Try a box!
I won a 5 pack of these in an auction very fine cigar , with a rich tobacco flavor, excellent burn and draw, not over powering at all, good to the last inch, have had 2 of them so far right out of the package, no humidor time at all, a very good any time cigar.
I keep several humidors with lots of different cigars. I keep reaching for these. I also get a little nervous when I start to run out rich and full of flavor.
Being my favorite brand I never had a doubt that this smoke would be anything short of pure pleasure. Wonderful aroma, great burn, great consistency. Looking forward to trying all the available sizes, but I can already recommend this to all my cigar-smoking buddies. Stock up on this one.
I enjoy the full body flavor and consider this one of my favorites
Very enjoyable everyday cigar. Very good burn, great flavor, and impeccably constructed.
A truly outstanding cigar that reminds me of the Cuban Partagas Petit Coronas. So many of the "full" bodied cigars begin great and then drop their strength or become harsh half way down. Not this one. It changes strength from full to medium bodied and then picks back up full bodied toward the end. But best of all it offers a true cascade of flavors throughout.
I'm very happy with this brand and this paticular smoke is a close 2nd place favorite to the Double Maduro Quixote. I'll offer this to my friends who are afraid of maduros. Very consistent/even burn and taste great to the very end.
