Cigar Journal gave the Panacea Red Habano 760 a 95 rating, second highest rating in their September 2012 issue. In summary, " This gigantic caliber is on of the most exciting aroma and taste explosions. Earthy, floral and elegant woodsy aromas, candied fruit; an elegant and spice and delicate sweetness can be found in the creamy smoke of this extremely harmoniously blended medium bodied cigar."
Brazilian maduro wrapper with a beautiful, slightly oily appearance and Habano binder surround a blend of Seco Cubano, Ligero Piloto Cubano, Ligero Olor Dominicano, and Ligero Nicaragua. The Red has all the nutty, spicy, and sweet flavors of the black...but in a full, bold body and pallet. If you like a strong cigar but insist it be balanced, this cigar will become your favorite.
We call the 760 the Peacemaker. It is a MAN'S cigar, but spicy enough for those spicy women that want to be seen with a BIG, beautiful, cigar in their mouth. The 60 Ring Gauge provides a big canvas for our master blender, giving him room to paint with bold and spicy flavors. This is worth the investment of a couple of hours, trust me!
- Strength: Medium
- Body: Full
- Taste: Molasses, semi-sweet, hint of spice, caramel, coffee
This is my big red wine cigar. It is ideal for pairing with a hearty Cabernet, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot, and any red wine that has a "red fruit flavor". You can also pair it with a Guinness Stout and a Speyside Scotch with fruity undertones and corn-sweet Bourbons like a Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek or Evan Williams.
Red Habano pairs nicely with medium to full bodied red wines. In the larger ring gauges the Habano is less dominant but is still bold enough to pair nicely with strong spirits if you like a slightly milder cigar -
