Sancho Panza is among the oldest Cuban brands still in operation today. The cigars fill the medium-body range and are often recommended as a great introduction to Cuban cigars for the non-Cuban smoker. Today’s brand retains an extremely simplistic look, showcasing a band nearly identical to the pre-revolution appearance of the 1960s and earlier.
The cigars are known for their larger sizes, with the intricately-crafted Belicosos vitola being the staple offering for the Sancho Panza brand.
