Sancho Panza Extra-Fuerte

A serious Sancho for a serious Sancho enthusiast!

Take one puff off this Honduran handmade and you’ll instantly notice some serious power. Wrapped in a shiny, reddish Honduran-grown Cuban-seed leaf and boasting a long-filler blend of hefty Nicaraguan and Honduran leaves, this baby starts and ends with a kick, while adding a few punches in between. Balanced to the T with an assortment of rich, bold flavors backed by a little pepper, the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte is perfect for any seasoned enthusiast and will add a great finishing touch to that hearty steak dinner.

Sancho Panza Extra-Fuerte received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "A big, pressed corona gorda with a rough cap and a silky wrapper. It has balanced flavors with a hint of caramel and cherry sweetness. The finish smacks of light spice and pepper."

Very close to Cubans
I smoke my share of authentic Habanos Cubans and my eight year old SP EF Madrid tastes very close to the Cubans that I smoke. Very close.

A new favorite
What a bargain: deep delicious flavor, burns right, with great flavor. Only downside- it’s box pressed, but - no big deal.

I like cigars you can
I like cigars you can taste and the Sancho Panza Extra-Fuerte Cordoba delivers. It is a very strong cigar. Some people may not like that, but I love it.

Great sticks for everyday smoke.
great flavors at a price I cannot achieve where I live! I do expedite shipping on all my orders but even so the price is well worth it.

Sanco PanzaExtra-Fuerte Madrid
I believe this to be the best full bodied cigar in it's price range. Fantastic Value !!!!!!!! 5 Vegas Series "A" would be my other choice for best value in a terrific full bodied smoke. Many great other fine choices, but not a their reasonable prices.

Best of the Sancho Intro Sampler Lot
This box pressed beauty is a nice smooth smoke and full of flavor. There is no harsh first third to deal with. It's definitely a fuller bodied smoke but never intense. My first exposure to these was in the intro sampler and it was the best of the bunch by a landslide (not that the others were bad at all. Construction is nice. A good solid pack that draws nicely and doesn't burn too hot to last a solid hour +. This stick is certain to find a nice corner of my humidor. Don't let the price fool you. It's on par with others at twice the price easily.

Consistent Quality Cigar
Remains a favorite and I have gone through many boxes these over the years. While I am disappointed to see the prices increasing, the reality is the cigar has been under-priced considering the consistent quality box after box. Well formed box press, no looseness, even burn, not harsh toward end, complex taste and great aroma. Names states "extra fuerte (strong), but it tends to be more on the medium side. Worth a shot if you're on the fence. I think you will find them a mainstay in your humidor.

Great cigar... especially for the cost
This is one of my favorite inexpensive cigars. I always keep a half dozen in my humidor, I've given these to cigar friends and they usually think it is a more expensive cigar. Full, smooth. leathery, with the slightest bit of black cherry hidden in there.

Good cigar
If every cigar maker took a lesson from sancho panza we would all be very happy herfers. There are lots of tasty cigars that are made poorly and lots of cigars that taste terrible but are well made. I have enjoyed how well made and good tasting these are and the price for value is good. Overall i reccomend and will buy again

Old Reliable
I've bought at least twenty boxes of these in various sizes over the past few years. Always a good smoke that will impress even your most finicky buddies. One of the great go-to sticks.

Sancho Red .... You 'know' you are smoking a great cigar
When I smoke a cigar I want flavours! This guy has it all for me. Nice box pressed texture, a deep start and nutty taste down to the end. A terrific value.

Much better than expected.
I smoked a Sancho Panza a while back (much earlier in my cigar smoking days), and found it to be nothing worth trying again. Then I had a few friends tell me about the Extra-Fuerte Madrid. I can't say this would be an "everyday" or a "go-to" cigar for me (although the price was excellent). But it was a surprisingly good smoke. Fuller-bodied, hint of spice, easy draw, and an even burn w/o a lot of touching up required. And in a box-pressed stick, no less. I urge those who either haven't had a good experience with Sancho Panza, or those looking to try something a bit different, to give this one a shot.

Best bang for your buck
This cigar is rich with oils and flavor. The smoke volume was good, but the wrap was a little tight. If you have never tried Sancho Panza do it now! This cigar is one of those hidden value gems! Great taste and quality with out the enormous price. I will definitely be keeping these in stock in the humidor.

Customer Testimonials
Indeed, this cigar is full strength! It is very robust in flavor and truly fits the profile.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
I have purchased many boxes of the Extra Fuerte. Usually I purchase the ring sizes leaning toward Churchill, and the EF has always been consistent and better than most cigars, even if I spent a lot more money on other cigars. But as good as this cigar is, I found myself hot boxing the Churchill sizes wanting something more from the Extra Fuerte, even if I didn't know what that something was. I purchased another box of EF a month, or less, ago, but this time I purchased the Madrid size, which I had never smoked. I also purchased 5 or 6 boxes of other brands that cost much more apiece, some of which were new to me, but they all had high accolades on reviews with corresponding prices to match the esteemed wisdom of the reviewers . I have sampled them all, but ole Sancho put them all to shame. When I smoked my first Madrid, WOW and WHOOPEE! It had everything I wanted, looks, bite, price, I could go on and on, but you may not like it so don't get carried away. If everyone catches on to this brand it will explode in prices like other cigars I think are good such as Hogshead, etc. and I don't want that. I have smoked my last Madrid, and I am on here now buying some more.

I am not a man inclined toward brand loyalty. I figure quality talks and, perhaps, that justifies saying, "that brand is the best." Experience taught me that Levi's is my go to blue jean, period. Pick a number, see which line looks and feels the best according to my taste. Just like my .40 caliber Glock 22. It fits, feels good and delivers every time. I started with the Sancho Panza Dulcinea when I wanted to try a high-rated milder smoke. A bounty of expletives gushed at my involuntary excitement. Yes, the outermost wrap seemed a little loose in my hand, but it was exquisite construction that delivered. So, when I ventured further into this company & tried the double maduro I was so impressed that I asked," What else do these guys have?" I am writing this as I work my way into the final 3rd of the Extra-Fuerte, and I'll be damned… Man up, boys and girls. This is the real deal. And you simply cannot beat the price for this kind of quality. "With a rebel yell… more, more, more!"
PS of Decatur, GA
Can't believe this cigar only costs what it does. Thick, rich smoke. Pleasant aroma, and to top it off, it's freakin delicious. What more can you ask for? They are easily as good as anything twice their price. The humidor will rarely be without some of these.
I'm in Afghanistan right now deployed. And around month 2 here people started smoking cigars, and I did not know much about cigars, but I know that I liked strong cigars that leave you light headed after words. And being the rank I am I cant afford smoke 5-8 dollar cigars on daily basis. So I decided to try this cigar, and I smoke about 2 a day, when I had my first cigar I was impressed, and as time went by they got even better, the price is great and they do draw smoothly which I cant say about many cigars. When I smoke cigars I usually think when is the kick gona happen? with this cigar before you know it, its there already. Its really good. This a great cigar, the price is great, its just really good cigar especially if you don't want to spend to much money. I thought to my self to save money and not buy anymore but 2 weeks after I was out I could not wait anymore so I just bought 2 more boxes. If you reading this and your shopping cart is full and you looking for that last box of cigars, this is it. You wont regret it.
VJ of Klamath Falls, OR
Been searching for a bargain priced, great tasting, and full-bodied cigar on C.I. for a long time. Finally found it! I have been so pleased with the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte line (love the Madrid size) and its great build quality, taste, and full-bodied flavor. I can't recommend this highly enough. Keep up the good work S.P. and thank you C.I. for selling them at such an incredible price!!!
GQ of Simi Valley, CA
Bang for the buck, one of the best cigars available. Great flavor, near perfect draw... can't go wrong picking up a box of these sticks!
JB of Coon Rapids, MN
In my view, the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte is a fine cigar and certainly not over-priced. It smells good to start with, give an very good draw and even burn. It's got plenty of strength without a hint of harshness and offers a fine smoke from one end to the other. I'm certainly a Sancho Panza fan.
MM of Leesburg, VA
I agree with cs, that a little time in the humidor makes this a great cigar, but if you can't wait its ok because its a fantastic smoke. just the right amount of pepper, a perfect draw and construction, smooth and tasty to the nub.
MS of Milford, CT
This is an absolutely excellent brand. If you would like to mellow them a bit let them set for six months. They are just EXCELLENT!!!
CS of Rock Springs, WY
You won't go wrong with these. Forget the cheap price and order one or two "vitolas." I will send anyone who thinks these stink some free top dogs and they won't be any better.
CS of Rock Springs, WY
Picked these up on the Jambalaya and let me say I was more than pleased by the smooth strength and flavor of this cigar. Full strength with no harshness whatsoever. Don't sleep on this one.
SA of Jackson, MS
It’s not as pretty, or complex or as high performance as all those twice the price boutique brands but it stands on its own for value, taste and consistency. I let one sit for six months in the humidor marinating. Came out strong and smooth blanketing the palate with a solid leather core, a dark wine tartness, and cloying earthiness you’d expect in a full bodied cigar. Recommended as a go to cigar when others fall short from their price tagged expectations.
LH of Marysville, CA
I've yet to have a " Madrid " that was anything but REAL good ! Seem to be consistently well rolled and have that extra full taste you come to expect with the Red label ' extra fuerte ' line of Sancho Panza, also think highly of the Double Maduro escudero guys too ! ! !
VT of Blue Springs, MO
This cigar is another fine blend (Sancho Panza Extra-Fuerte) by Sancho Panza.I find myself keeping these beauties in stock by the boxes. The flavor is excellent, with a mellow grand taste. The construction of this cigar is awesome. SMokes cool and consistent. A very good cigar. One you should at least try. For the medium to full flavor.This cigar is a favorite of mine.
KD of Broken Arrow, OK
Ever since trying, and becoming a fan of the Sancho Panza Double Maduro, I thought I'd give the Extra Fuerte a try. I was not disappointed. Hearty and smooth flavor just like its bretheren, but with a spicy kick added, and very consistent from one cigar to the next. Now this cigar also remains a regular fixture in my humidor.
DP of Pinehurst, NC
if you want to be pleasantly surprised (and as cigar lovers, isnt that the greatest?) pick up any of the Sancho Panza cigars. for me, the Extra Fuerte is perhaps my favorite. just give em a month or so in the humi and you will be walking into flavor country with the strike of a match. they usually dont go higher than 5-6 bucks you will not feel bad spending too much on a cigar that, to be honest, wont be voted the prettiest girl at the prom but dammit she's got personality. a solid 88.
MC of Azusa, CA
Sancho Panza Extra-Fuerte Been drooling over these in the CI (You guys ROCK!) catalog for some time and finally decided to break the seal and grab some. Padron/ Rocky Edge fans rejoice! Great flavor from the first puff with a finish that makes you want to light another right up. Full flavor but not too strong even at the nub. Better get some before I buy them out.... Thanks CI.
W of WAtlanta, GA
I've been a loyal fan of the Sancho Panza brand for a number of years. The Extra Fuerte is an excellent cigar when you are in the mood for a fuller bodied smoke with a little extra kick. I'd rate the EF right up there with some of the super premiums, but at a fraction of the cost. As always CIs prices and service are great!!. I'd highly recommend the Extra Fuerte to anyone who enjoys a full bodied cigar
