It is kind of funny that with IPCPR on the horizon and my last Week in Smoke mainly containing new releases that I turn to the Sancho Panza Double Maduro. With Walt recently reviewing the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte I thought this would compliment his review. Plus, with us trying to get back to basics and focus on having fun than dealing with some of the bullshit that has come our way over the course of the last eight years, I though it would be good to review a cigar that I remember smoking back when we started.
A lot of things have changed over the course of eights years. What was full bodied then, is not now. My likes/dislikes have changed, crops change year to year, new rollers…the possibilities are endless so it is always nice to revisit a cigar and see what it has to offer.
Video runs close to 9 minutes and not only do you get to spend 9 minutes admiring my beard but you also get a quick tour of my garden. Eight years later and the Sancho Panza Double Maduro still delivers a consistent, enjoyable flavor profile with no significant construction issues. Lots of value that can easily be enjoyed by the new/occasional cigar smoker but still be appreciated by the seasoned cigar veteran. Sometimes, whats old is new again and the Sancho Panza Double Maduro still holds a steady spot in any Top 5 Under $5 list.
