16 years ago, Habanos SA introduced to the world the very first Reserva in 2003. It was the cohiba selection reserva. The reserva (and the grand reserva) series allow aficionados to enjoy cigars made entirely from a single year crop.
In the case of the Cohiba Robusto Reserva (reviewed here below), all leafs come from 2014. The cigar comes in 5000 numbered boxes of 20 cigars.

Cigar Review – Sancho Panza Gran Quixote Exclusivo BELUX

Origin : CubaSancho Panza
Format : Romeo
Size : 162 mm x 52
Ring : 5
Hand-Made
Price : USD 20-

Sancho Panza appeared on a cigar in 1848. The brand takes it name from the novel of Miguel Cervantes: Don Quixote.

The marca develops intense medium strength cigars with a high ageing potential. If you have the chance to enjoy a Sancho Panza Sancho from the late 90s they are pure pleasure and they are still around on the market.

I was very pleased to receive an early Christmas gift from La Casa Del Tabaco Knokke to review this cigar.

It took me some times to post this review as the first one I smoked was plugged. The second one was tight, the third one as well and the fourth plugged...
We all know how much Cuba is rushing their production since few years, but this is getting ridiculous. I would rather wait longer than having plugged and tight cigars all the time. Smaller sizes are most likely to be tight or plugged as the error margin is smaller.
Therefore this review has been done on the least tight of all of them.

When I bumped into Davidoff Of London I was very excited to direct myself to the new Davidoff 50th anniversary. I almost never smoke new world cigars but when you talk about Davidoff 50th anniversary you tell yourself about what was happening 50 years go. When in 1968 the genius Zino Davidoff started his journey with an amazing Cuban Chapter.
