Spotlight Brand: Sancho Panza Triple Anejo

February 19, 2016 |

A refined, full-bodied blend.

When it comes to value, Sancho Panza cigars occupy a lofty perch. Debuting in the late 1990s, the Sancho Panza line quickly earned high ratings and accolades, and due to their affordable price point, became a favorite every day smoke among astute enthusiasts.

Sancho Panza Triple Añejo is outfitted with a Nicaragua Jalapa Sungrown High priming wrapper sitting atop a blend of Ecuador Sumatra, U.S. Broadleaf, and Brazilian Arapiraca long-leaves. Full-bodied yet smooth, expect to be greeted with flavors of pepper, earth, leather, and coffee with a subtle sweetness noticeable on the finish. Try Sancho Panza Triple Añejo if you’re looking for an affordable, delicious full-bodied cigar to add to your everyday rotation. 

Q & A: Wetting Your Cigars?

Q.
I read somewhere that some people rinse their cigars under water. Is that as crazy as I think it is or is there some reasoning behind it?

2/19/16 | by HC of White Lake, MI

A.
​​​As crazy as it sounds, there are a few proponents of this technique. Min Ron Nee, one of the world's foremost authority on cigars and collecting/ aging, has stated he sometimes employs "cigar wetting" to enhance a cigar's flavor and intensity. It entails simply placing the cigar under a running tap for a few seconds, carefully ensuring even water distribution along the wrapper while avoiding contact with the filler tobacco. Experiments here at CIGAR.com have resulted in the overall opinion of nothing wrong with "cigar wetting" if done correctly, but the potential problems outweigh the perceived benefits including an uneven burn that may require more effort to stay lit.

Review: Ave Maria Argentum

Dave Morning Star gets a maduro makeover
This stout, 5.0”x58, figurado offers up a unique experience. You may have had a chance to visit this limited edition size dubbed ‘Morning Star' when it was released under the original Ave Maria line featuring an Ecuador Habano wrapper. Argentum, on the other hand, is topped with a thick and flavorful Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper which boosts the strength up a notch, offering ample notes of spice, pepper, and leather. I found this cigar to be medium to full- bodied while still retaining that signature smoothness the Ave Maria brand is so well known for. If you love the original Ave Maria line but looking for an added kick, Argentum delivers tenfold.
