Sancho Panza cigars originated in Havana, Cuba in 1852 and are still made there today with an amazingly mild taste for traditional Cuban cigars. In 2001 they were finally available to the United States market when General Cigars starting making them in Honduras. Brand new to the Sancho Panza line up, the Triple Añejo Gordo is a full-bodied powerhouse that features a blend US Broadleaf and Brazilian Arapiraca long-fillers underneath a savory Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and all wrapped up in a stunning golden brown high-priming Nicaraguan Jalapa Sun Grown wrapper. Together, this lip smacking stogie delivers powerful flavors of hearty spice right from the start with notes of pepper, earth, leather, and coffee with a subtly-sweet undercurrent dotting the finish. Pair it with an after dinner scotch.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
