A small, but rich habano, earthy, full of spice, with chocolate and vanilla flavours and that salty note. Great little cigar.
SANCHO PANZA CIGARS
Don Emilio Ahmsted registered this brand in 1852, then during the 1880's the factory was bought by Ramon Allones, who kept it's labelling, it's traditional trimmings and, more importantly, remained faithful to it's consistently superb quality. These cigars are named for the character of Sancho Panza in "Don Quixote" the famous novel by Miguel de Cervante.Sancho Panza cigars are medium bodied with the classical Cuban mellow flavour. Toffee, dark chocolate and coffee notes can be detected together with salt, pepper and spice, slightly floral, perfumed and distinctly aromatic . All of this range are handmade and, if you want to go for a dramatic effect, try the famous, enormous Sanchos or the shaped head Belicosos. Be warned, not for beginners but oh such wonderful cigars! Belicoso: CA 90, Sancho: CA 85, Non Plus: CA 85, Molinos: CA 86, Corona: CA 86
Aged Habano cigars taste different to the equivalent recent production. It is an acquired taste and not for beginners. There are auctions for thousands of dollars for cigars which date pre-embargo. There are very high prices paid for each decade after that. The cigars we are offering have matured a few years. The oldest are from 1998 and the youngest are from 2003.These cigars have matured in Cuba and have just been inspected for quality by Habanos and then in our humidor by us. A few of our VIP clients have had some and have already bought them in batches. We will soon run out of these and have no idea if and when we will get more. Although based on the comments by our customers, and especially by our long time customers, we will ask for more.Why smoke a matured cigar? This is what our supplier says, " During the early years the cigar is left to mature the general flavor remains but as the nicotine and ammonia disappear the cigar "mellows" and the flavor is less harsh" .As we said these cigars are for connoisseurs, and to them this is a treat. Enjoy.Note: Although the system states otherwise the codes are guaranteed for these boxes.
