Sancho Panza Double Maduro Quixote
#1
This is one of the two Cigars bombed to me by Sergio.  It is a Sancho Panza Double Maduro - I believe it to be the "Quixote"  it is a fairly short box pressed Hunduran cigar with a gold label.

Pre-light - The cigar had a nice dark color to it and smalled quite nice.  I could barely wait to cut it and get it lit.  I like to moisten the head before clipping my cigars - this is where the trouble started... the top of the cap came off effortlessly while I was lightly wetting the end - this has never happened before on any other cigar.  When I clipped it the whole cap fell off (not a deep clip - just enough to remove the minimum)  I figure the roller did not use enough of the paste to affix the cap - oh well.  The pre-light draw was too tight IMO.

Light - The cigar lit well - Still tight on the draw.  I squeeze down the body of the cigar and find it is pretty firm near the head.  I squeeze and roll it a while with my fingers to no avail.  The flavors are nice though.  I detected some semi-sweet chocolate along with some toasty notes.  There was a background flavor that made me think of capuccino. Really nice.

 

Thoughts - The flavors remained consistent through the entire cigar, but in different strengths.  I would put this as a medium-bodied cigar.  It was a shame that the cigar seemed partially plugged - maybe I am just too used to larger ring gauges.  All in all I would do it again, but I would probably go with a corona or a robusto to see if it had a better draw.  Because of the cap falling off I had to fight the wrapper to keeep it from unraveling at the head.  Not a huge deal, but it was annoying.  The wrapper was increadibly thick though.  I have not seen any other wrapper as thick as this one.  Pretty neat. 

Thanks for the cigar Sergio!  I will have to try another!

Tasty, tasty lil' cigars, they are. I agree with you about the caps, though---they do tend to fall off a bit.

I keep smoking up my box of 'em, though. Big Grin

I think I could deal with that a little better.  I hate to fight a cigar for smoke.  It was still a good experience that I can see myself enjoying again (and again...).  Thanks for the comments guys!

I tried to unplug it by rolling the really hard part in my fingers a while.  I don't have a draw poker or anything.

bwahahah i sent u the plugged one on purpose bwahahahaha.[devil]Wink

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #b9af9f"just kidding though. I havent gotten a plugged one but I do get a few that have a tight draw, though I dont get lots of smoke the flavs are great. the boxes on these are inexpensive so if you commit to a box im sure 19 out of the 20  will be great events in your life Big Grin.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #b9af9f"thanks for the review mark, great job but sorry bout the bad construction
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

No problem Sergio!  Thanks for the cigar!  The flavors were great even though there was not much smoke coming through.  It bellowed smoke from the lit end though - I guess it was teasing me... Wink
