The history of cigars Sancho Panza
The Cuban cigar brand Sancho Panza was born in 1848. It was founded by a German, Emil Ohmstedt, who lived in Cuba. When he creates his brand, it passes almost unnoticed. He set up his factory at 48, Calle de Angeles in Havana. When he died in 1874, he bequeathed his company to the Catalan Salvador Perito. The company often changed owners because of the economic difficulties it encountered. In 1898 it is the total bankruptcy and the factory stops its production temporarily until it is taken over by Muñozo, Alonso y Cia. The new owners did not succeed in redressing the financial situation.
In 1920, they sold the brand to Ramón Allones who in turn sold it to Cifuentes.
In 1930, following the economic crisis of 1929, Sancho Panza was bought by the cigar brand El Rey del Mundo. This purchase marked the beginning of a renaissance, the beginning of an era of glory that has not yet come to an end. Notoriety is acquired following two new creations: the Sancho Panza Molinos cigar (Lonsdale module - calibre 43) and the very cult Sancho cigar. These Habanos powerfully conquered the palates of puro lovers who succumbed without any resistance to their elegance. The success is phenomenal in Spain. In fact, throughout the 1950s, Sancho was one of the best-selling cigars in the country. Thanks to the record sales in Spain, the brand was spared the Cuban Revolution. At present, it enjoys an excellent reputation among the great smokers of Habanos.
The creations Sancho Panza
The brand's cigars are among the smoothest puros you can find. They all release a creamy taste. Sancho Panza opts for the handmade production of long filler cigars. The vitolas are characterized, among other things, by a composition made of a blend of tobaccos cultivated in the plantations of the Vuelta Abajo. Today, Sancho Panza offers 7 modules. Its catalog has among others the largest cigar modules such as the Grand Corona carried by the legendary creation Sancho. This cigar is 234 mm long and attention, it takes 2 hours to finish it. We can also quote the cigar Sancho Panza Belicosos which has a pyramid module (calibre 52) also called torpedo. Less long than the previous one since it is 140 mm, the cigar can be tasted in one hour. Its aromatic panel is composed of earthy notes, woody with a nuance of leather. The whole is decorated with tastes of chocolates and spices. Another example, the cigar Sancho Panza Non Plus has a module straddling the corona and le petit corona (calibre 42). It has a woody aroma and an earthy taste. Last example, the shortest cigar of the brand is the Molino which reveals a bitter sweet taste.
