I bought a Valiente as part of a Famous robusto sampler. I was very impressed with this smoke: I found mine to be very complex, with hints of nuts, coffee, and cocoa. Definitely the type of cigar for a contemplative mood when you have the time to think about the tastes and smells. I'm sold! This may become my standard robusto.
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.
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.
have smoked about half a box of these and every one has been great! the box press shape and construction make it a great find,your sale prices make it impossible to resist.super taste and great draw and burn.
This cigar is rich in flavor,smooth as silk, with a very pleasant aroma. Ihave smoked 5 and must compliment Villazon on a well made cigar,very nice draw,all burned evenly with a firm grey ashtill i nearly burned my lips!im going to make a special place in my humidorfor this one!!!,
I received two of these in a sampler pack, and I'll likely be buying more. I agree with the fellow who said these taste like a Cuban. I checked the prices on these. Unbelievably low! The draw was excellent, the taste smooth, slightly sweet, slightly woodsy, just like the Cubans I've had. I don't if others have had bad sticks, or what. I've only had one of the two from the sampler, but based on this one smoke, I'd buy an entire box of these!

This was a gift from some friends and i am definitely grateful for it. This is a solid smoke with a little bit of spice and an occasional sweetness. Solid burn and draw with a good oil wrapper feel and at a great price.
Got mine in a sampler. Perfect draw for a nice enjoyable slow smoke. Tried to burn a little uneven but I slowed down and everything was just fine then. I enjoyed the flavor of the cigar chew very much. Will add a box soon when I have room.
I recently got a box of these and they are good. Nothing great but I'd still give them a 7 to 8 overall. Mild with a little spice. They do smell better than they taste, but if you want something in this price range for an everyday type of smoke, I think they are worth it.
