Last year, the three lines of Sancho Panza were revitalized by the creative juggernaut known as Matt Booth. On Monday, September 25, the intrigue around Sancho will intensify with the launch of a limited-edition blend.
Booth says the “hyper-sexual blend provides both pleasure in the combustion experience and depth to the brand’s overall offering,” in what he refers to as a meaningful “next installment” and “responsible addition” to the Sancho Panza brand franchise.
Matt Wilson, senior brand manager of Sancho Panza broke it down further saying, “Following the big news around Sancho Panza last year, we agreed the brand deserved a heightened level of focus this year. So we developed a special blend to continue the dialogue around Sancho. By releasing a limited-edition blend of this caliber, we’re anticipating that Sancho loyalists and newcomers alike will spread the gospel of this great brand, as they expand their humidors with a new smoke to collect and enjoy.”
Sancho Panza Limited Edition was blended by Matt Booth and Justin Andrews, with the Oliva blending team. Booth explained, “We have always had both a respect and an adoration for the products that come out of the Oliva facility. And we felt it appropriate to produce with them because their signature direction to cigar composition aligned perfectly with what we were looking to achieve for Sancho Panza. We are also enchanted by Cory Bappert, President Oliva USA and were looking for any and all reason to remain close to him…related to production of course.”
Blended with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaragua filler tobaccos from Condega, Esteli and Somoto, the cigar is medium-bodied. It is, in Booth’s estimation “an episodic adventure in taste and transition” that “upon ignition, will take the smoker in a vice-like grip of enhanced enjoyment.”
