Sancho Panza Double Maduro Gigante Cigars

Sancho Panza Double Maduro Gigante is no doubt a cigar whose name rings a nostalgic bell for many a long-time connoisseur. One of the favorite old-time classics, the Sancho Panza brand has unfortunately fallen into the shadows in recent years, its glory days but a distant glimmer in the rear view mirror and its present situation best described as “still hanging on.” However, in a recent, dramatic turn of events, the brand has been rejuvenated, reworked, and given new life, as one of the edgiest names in cigar history, Matt Booth, is now the creative director at the industry giant General Cigar, and has vowed to make Sancho great again! Okay, so maybe he didn’t actually say that verbatim, but the magic he’s worked with the brand is causing quite a stir in the world of premium cigars. In the case of this Double Maduro variety, the second release in the trio, we have a bold and flavorful concoction brewed up at the STG factory in Danli, Honduras using a filler blend from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. As for the “Double Maduro” part, both the binder and wrapper are aged maduro leaves, the binder hailing from Esteli, Nicaragua and the wrapper being an Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf that ties the whole package together in gorgeous harmony. For a modestly-priced cigar, this stick is definitely something to talk about.

All-new blending meets all-new packaging, and that means new bands and boxes alike. According to Booth, the branding of the new Sancho Panza cigars is inspired by the Latin culture of West Los Angeles. We will just say, however, that it is a classic Latin style font that resembles something you’d find on a high-end Cuban cigar. The simple and modern packaging houses a simple and modern style cigar, in this case a precision-rolled stick that produces boatloads of smoke, holds a thick ash, and burns like a razor’s edge. Sancho Panza Double Maduro starts off with a heavy presence of cedar and raw tobacco, along with a steady blast of white pepper. The pepper resides quickly, however, leaving a cross between a classic maduro flavor profile and that of a classic medium-bodied Cigar Boom style stick. This includes notes of wood, nuts, and coffee, along with subtle floral notes on the retrohale. The finish is very clean and neat for a cigar of this stature, and overall the body finishes on the heavy side of medium-full. The Gigante comes in at 6” x 60, ready to produce mellow, flavorful smoke over the course of up to several hours. Can you handle it?


While there is plenty of “oomph,” Sancho Panza Double Maduro is never close to being overpowering or imbalanced. It makes a great stick for mildly experienced smokers looking to get into stronger cigars. However, it’s doubtless the major audience to be attracted to this blend will be the old school cigar nuts that grew up with the original Sancho Panza blends. If you happen to be one of them, let us reassure you that this blend will absolutely not disappoint! It pairs well with coffee, port wine, or dark beer, and serves as a great way to wind down the day. For anyone not familiar with the blend, if you have been drawn to cigars such as Flor de Las Antillas Maduro or CAO MX2, this cigar is definitely for you. It has been said many a time that nothing beats a classic. That may be true, but most would agree that the all-new Sancho Panza Double Maduro Gigante beats the classic version of itself every single time.
