Sancho Panza is a historic name in cigars dating all the way back to 1848 in Havana, Cuba. Matt Booth of Room101 fame was recently named creative directer over at General Cigar after they acquired Room101. Since arriving at General Cigar, Matt has been working to revive some classic cigar brands, and this time, he has turned his attention to Sancho Panza.

Toasting the foot on this dark beauty produces bold notes of cocoa, leather, coffee and chocolate. See what this new collaboration is all about, and pick yourself up some reborn Sancho Panza today!

I gave this cigar three stars because I couldn’t give it a 2 1/2. I don’t know if it is dipped but when I did a v cut and dry draw it has a very nice leaf chewing tobacco taste. The draw is slightly tight with a slightly reduced smoke output, the burn is a little wavy but nothing to touch up in the first third. The wrapper looks and feels oily and it’s toothy. The smoke is blended and light flavors of leather and sweetness with a red pepper retro hale without a burn or a punch to the nose. It’s sweeter than most of the Maduros I smoke, almost reminds me of cracker jacks. The wrapper is really smooth feeling in the mouth. It has some light milk chocolate notes. It pairs well with black coffee with the sweetness it produces. It brings back memories of my beach nut chewing tobacco days. If it wasn’t $8.50, I would consider this as an everyday smoke. Into the second third the chocolate has turned more coco, and the smoke production has picked up. The burn keeps correcting itself. Very oily smoke. There’s a lot to be said about the dark sweetness this cigar is giving off. It has become a bit lumpy. Very smooth retro hale. I read somewhere it scored a 91 rating, myself, I’d drop it into the high eighties range, but there’s not a lot to complain about. The ash is somewhat dark grey, and holds on for about an once and a quarter. I’m getting a little black pepper in the end of the second third. I did my first touch up near the first band. It’s medium body, full flavor, the nicotine is medium as well. Going into the final third the sweetness is starting to fade but it’s still very smooth, pepper has come in more. Over all I’ve enjoyed this cigar.
