Sancho Panza Extra Chido

At the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, General Cigar created a fourth regular production line under the Sancho Panza brand, the Sancho Panza Extra Chido.

What’s different about Sancho Panza Extra Chido is it is being produced at General Cigar Dominicana in the Dominican Republic. This marks the first time a Sancho Panza has been produced in the Dominican Republic. Extra Chido features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper developed by Justin Andrews and Matt Booth. The remainder of the blend uses a Nicaraguan binder and a series of multi-priming tobaccos, including Nicaraguan ASP and tercio-aged Dominican Piloto. Sancho Panza Extra Chido is presented in three sizes packaged in 20-count boxes. The price point ranges from $8.79 to $9.99 per cigar.

“I’m stoked to be collaborating with Justin again on this extension to the Sancho Panza product saga. It is an honor to contribute my part to such a classic brand. More to come…,” said Matt Booth in a press release.
