Don Pancho

Don Pancho rosado robusto

Don Pancho’s is a small cigar shop in Kissimmee, Florida and the shop was recommended to me by a friend who’s a regular there. So when I was in the neighborhood I decided to drop by and get myself some cigars including some of the Bucanero made houseblends. This time I smoked a Don Pancho rosado robusto.

The cigar measures 5×47 and comes in cellophane but without a band. The wrapper is reddish brown with some small veins. The predraw is good but has a musty flavor. The construction feels good but the cigar smells like cart board.

I taste musty soil, mild sweet, and soon a musty, sweet and spicy wood flavor. After an inch I taste a musty and spicy wood with herbs and a hint of citrus.

Halfway I taste wood, herbs and cinnamon, the cigar is quite spicy and continues to get spicier and less pleasant. Towards the end the cigar is so spicy that it turns bitter.

The cigar lasted me an hour. The draw is great, just like the burn. The smoke is medium, both in volume and thickness. The ash is pepper & salt colored and firm. The cigar is full flavored and medium bodied. I got a big flame when I purged the cigar.

Don Pancho double maduro robusto

Don Panchos is a cigar shop in Kissimmee, Florida and the local hangout of one of my friends, so when I was in Kissimmee last fall I decided to drop in. I noticed some Bucanero cigars, we talked about the brand and the owner told me Bucanero made their house blends. I picked up a few, amongst them was this 5×50 double maduro robusto.

The wrapper is dark, shiny, oily and looks great. I see a few veins, which make the cigar look though. The construction is great and the cigar has a unique smell. I smell nut shells, walnut shells to be precise. The predraw is great and I taste walnut shells, just like I smell them.

I taste a dry flavor, kinda like the skin in peanuts with some earth and a little bit of salt. After half an inch I taste a nice sweet chocolate in the aftertaste. The flavors are full and the aftertaste takes long to disolve. Halfway I taste some earth, herbs and cinnamon. The herbal flavors are dominant.

Some puffs later I taste a fresh dark chocolate flavor too and after two thirds I taste dry nuts, lots of herbs and some white pepper. The flavors are dry. The pepper becomes stronger, something I especially taste on my lips with some freshness and something musty.

This cigar lasted me an hour and twenty minutes. The draw is great and the burn is good. The smoke is plenty but could be a bit thicker. The ash is nice, straight, light colored and firm. This cigar is full flavored and medium to full bodied.
