PANA Cigars was formed for the simple love of the Moment. Moments in the day… Moments in thought… Moments in life. Ultimately, we all have different reasons as to why we choose to share an hour’s worth of a Moment with a cigar. Smoking a PANA Cigar is just that, for the Moment.

– Pablo Enchinton, Owner and creator of Pana Tobacco Co.

Being that I am from Arizona I have taken special interest to the Pana Cigars.  Pablo Enchinton is a local here and his cigars have been drawing local chatter in shops. With his current distribution only in Arizona, and his launch only just in July, it is only a matter of time before he blows up and ventures out.

He currently has two cigars available, the Ligero Maduro and the Connecticut Especial, which is what I am talking about today…

The Connecticut Especial has a Beautiful Bronze Connecticut wrapper on it with minimal visible veins.  The robusto is sturdy and firm with no soft spots…  It is finished off with a perfect pigtail cap that really brings the cigar together.  The cigar has a simple band that flows well with the golden connecticut wrapper.

When I first lit up the Pana Connecticut it had a very distinct and pleasant taste.  Flavors of hay and grass were predominant with a faint mild sweetness to it.  

The Pana Connecticut lit right up with ease and the draw was comfortable, with lots of smoke.

The middle third kept up with the same great flavors as the first.  Bursts of grass and hay with a mild strange sweetness on the back end.

The final third picks up a bit with a bits of spice and  some nutty flavors.

The Pana burned great, jagged at times but never needing corrections.  It had a very nice, white, bright ash that stayed strong on the cigar.

I very much enjoyed the Pana Connecticut Especial.  It was a great mild smoke.  Lots of flavor and very smooth and consistent.  The Pana would go great with a cup of coffee or a wheat beer.

Pablo has decided to keep his cigars for now off the internet and sell exclusively to brick and mortar shops as they are the “backbone of the industry.

It is only a matter of time before the word gets out on these great sticks…
