Like other great Habano brands such as Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta, Sancho Panza takes it name from a masterpiece of world literature. 

In Don Quixote, the famous 17th Century Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes, it was Sancho Panza who served the errant knight as his faithful squire. His name was first used for a Habano in 1848 and since then it has enjoyed a reputation for quality amongst discerning smokers. 

The range today comprises three vitolas including the Molino or mill which is a Cervantes size. Don Quixote was, of course, famous for tilting at windmills. 

Filled with a medium bodied blend of filler and binder tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo zone. 

Tasting Notes

Mild toasty, salty and peppery tobacco flavours, but not much spice, very smooth and creamy. With an even burn and a perfect draw this cigar is ideal for a late afternoon taster.


89 / 100

"...A chunky belicoso with a slightly uneven burn. The creamy smoke is sweet and woody showing light notes of orange peel, cinnamon and cashews..."

Reviewed by Jack Schonhaut (June 2001) I didn't know I was going to be a taste tester until these beauties arrived with my order from MO. I have smoked this vitola before and found them to be pleasant with a mild to medium flavor. These looked darker than any Sancho Panza I have previously seen with almost a maduro hue. There was also a beautiful oily sheen that made them look like they were going to try out for the Mr./Ms Universe pageant. I grudgingly put them in the humidor to rest for a week before I started my tasting. The first candidate was smoked after lunch. It was a nice sunny day, perfect for a leisurely smoke on the deck. There cigar looked perfect. Smooth, no veins and firm to the touch. The cut was clean and the pre-light aroma was a smell of cedar. Upon lighting there was an easy draw with a medium to full flavor that included tastes of cedar and coffee. I'm not talking about a latte, I mean fresh ground Columbian, in a big cup. This was not the taste of the Sancho Panza I've had before. This continued through the first third of the smoke as a firm dark gray ash developed. After the first third there arrived a definite taste of honey with more of a sweet cedar flavor. The coffee flavor subsided at this point and the flavors just mellowed out. Clouds of smoke, smooth draw, never harsh or dry all the way to the finish. This was a great way to spend an afternoon. Candidate Number two was smoked after dinner the following evening. There was the same oily sheen but the cigar seemed soft to the touch. As I feared this one was too loosely rolled. The coffee flavor was there in the beginning and some cedar at the end. It just wasn't a smoke you would linger over because it smoked hot and harsh towards the end. The had the third the following evening. It mirrored the first in appearance and flavor. I would not suggest this pyramid for enjoyment after a heavy dinner. It does seem best to help while away a spring or Summer afternoon. Thank you MO for these wonderful smokes.

Reviewed by Steve Pulizzano (February 2001) Named for the rustic squire to Don Quixote in Cervantes' novel of the same name. The Sancho Panza is generally admired for its two larger cigars, the Belicoso and Sancho which is a formidable 9ΒΌ X 47. All are handmade and are mild to medium bodied. The Sancho Panza is one of Cubas oldest marques. A very well made Habanos of the vitola: campanas. A smooth, finely veined capa that covered a well packed and slightly boxpressed figurado with no hard or soft spots to its length. Of the three samples sent only one was subpar in its taste with an acrid and dry finish especially for the first ΒΎ to 1". The following notes are for the other two: Prelight draw gave rich ripe fruity overtones that were mellow and refined without any harshness and that unmistakable Habanos tang to the tobacco. Postlight taste and aromas of subtle honey/floral, spice, a touch of roasted coffee and cedar that were subdued yet left sweet and aromatic tones on the palate. The torpedo shape tends to condense the smoke and leave a heavy prescence in the mouth but is mild yet wonderfully rich. A very well rounded smoke. They all smoked very evenly with a good draw and nice volumes of creamy smoke on each pull with a dark gray and solid ash that held well. I smoked the two past the band to the nub where I placed them on a toothpick to get every puff I could muster from them. A very nice Habanos for anytime of the day although you might not want to follow a heavy dinner of beef with this subtle yet involving cigar. Thanks C.GARS Ltd for allowing me the honor of being in your first ever Taste Test Challenge and for your generosity in sending three of the Sancho Panza Belicosos.

Flavor:Mild, Burn: average to good, slower than normal Draw: Poor to low, rather hard Notes: mild vanilla,just a hint of a nutmeg finish but mainly light cocoa, no citrus at all unfortunatly,would need a strong drink to even think of buying this one again(Talisker maybe?) was not consistent with prior Sancho's I've had, thus the disappointing review.

I may be but a mere novice and not up to the aficionado stage yet but I stumbled across this Sancho recently and it is perfect for me! Not too light, not too harsh, keeps together nicely and burns slow and even. Don't have to draw on it too heavily either (unlike Romeo y Julieta Coronation which was a touch disappointing). These are very well priced for singles on this site and I will be ordering here soon!! written by Cliffy UK

I`d tend to disagree here, folks. The Sancho Panza Belicoso is often compared (unfairly) to a Monte 2 or Vegas Robaina Unico - it`s not the same kind of cigar and is probably more analogous to a Diplomaticos 2. This is a fine light to mild torpedo with an open draw and leathery, woody tastes. I like Sancho Panzas very much and the Belicoso is a good example. The heavy gauge, however, lends for a few sharp notes - hell, sharp notes are a good thing, try a Monte some time - this is a fine Cuban cigar and I`d be very pleased if someone bought me a box. Mine don`t go out too often, either. No more than my Monte 2`s do. written by Dave Francis
