sancho panza double maduro cervantes

The Double Maduro Cervantes is a highly enjoyable cigar. There were virtually no issues with its burn. The flavors were really nice, and it was especially good with a cup of coffee. Chocolate lovers might really enjoy it. The best part of all, however, is the price. At around $3 to $4 each, the Cervantes really seems like a bargain for the quality you are getting. At that price, getting a box of 20 is not too much of a gamble. I would recommend it as an everyday smoke, as its not extremely harsh and the price allows for it. Those who enjoy Maduro wrapped cigars will likely enjoy this stick. I wouldn't recommend it to beginners, though, because it might be too strong.

For its value and great overall performance, the Sancho Panza Double Maduro Cervantes earns a high grade of 3.5 out of 4 stars.

Don Pepin Tabacos Baez Favoritos


Tabacos Baez is a line produced by the revered Don Pepin Garcia. This line has a bit of a twist to it, though, because it is not as strong as other produced by Don Pepin. It is also unique in that it is the only Pepin creation to use a Connecticut wrapper.

The Tabacos Baez measures 5 1/2x52 in its Favoritos size, which is a Belicoso shape. It comes in just one other size, the 6 1/2x52 Monarcas, which is a Toro shape. In case you couldn't decipher it from looking at the names, Favoritos means favorites in English, and Monarcas translates to monarchs. The Favoritos' filler is composed of Nicaraguan Cuban-seed tobacco, and the same holds true for its binder. Topping it off is a rich Connecticut wrapper, as mentioned. The Tabacos Baez is considered to be medium-bodied.

The Tabacos Baez Favoritos is basically a standard looking cigar without much that stands out or screams for attention. The wrapper itself is a bit dark, and it has an oily sheen when put under light. There are also a few veins that are visible throughout the cigar's body. The band near the head is very basic, and nothing extravagant like you would find on some of the other cigars being released today. The band is beige, white, and red and features the Tabacos Baez name in large lettering. Feeling the cigar gives off a sense that it is well-packed with tobacco. A quick scent and taste prior to lighting reminds me of something sweet that I cannot put my finger on, but it is pleasant.

New to Cigars
Doesn't take long after one learns how to smoke one.
Spent $60 on a box.
Lesson learned.
Started with samplers and based my buy on Macanudo Maduro.
Some may enjoy
It all depends on your taste.
I want something that is not as intense.
Burned well, even, and good draw.
