Sancho Panza Sanchos 1998


An impressing cigar is coming into sight when you open the box... it promises a long time of pleasure which was fulfilled by a smoke lasting nearly 3 hours. Without any pressing and firmly rolled the cigar with the fine, oily and colorado-coloured wrapper lies in the hand.

Toasting and lighting it up... cutting, blowing through and now the first draw. A creamy smoke fills the mouth, more than expected due to this format.... The first third is light.... some grassy notes (not as intensive as for a Cohiba), some kind of bloomy taste.... Nice beginning....

In the second third very intensive honey is coming up... reminds me a bit like a Por Larranaga... wonderful... but everytime there is some grassy taste, sometimes more like fresh grass, sometimes more like hay..... it wins some strength by the time....

In the last third reminiscences of wood join, honey is fading away and gives way for the stronger tastes: leather and pure tobacco! What a final! The last hour of that smoke becomes powerful and after drinking water all the time before I now took a Port to attend it... a perfect match which doubles the pleasure....

The smoke is thick, almost quite creamy and very mouth-filling, the ash is stable and dark grey.

The cigar begins reserved but could increase its potential during smoking course even further.

3 hours of pleasure... a nice Friday evening.....
