The Red Habano is full bodied, medium strength cigar with a Brazilian maduro wrapper and Habano binder surrounding a blend of: Seco Cubano, Ligero Piloto Cubano, Ligero Olor Dominicano, and Ligero Nicaragua in the filler. Like our PANACEA Black Maduro - this cigar is smooth and balanced. The difference is in the taste and strength. PANACEA Red has all the nutty, spicy, and sweet flavors of the black, but in a bolder body and pallet. If you like a strong cigar but insist it be balanced, this cigar will become your favorite.

These are my big red wine cigars. They are ideal for pairing with a hearty Cabernet, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot, and any red wine that has a "red fruit flavor". You can also pair them with a Guinness Stout and a Speyside Scotch with fruity undertones and corn-sweet Bourbons like a Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek or Evan Williams.
The Red has a fruitcake spice that offers up candied fruit flavors and a rich full complexity over our signature toasted walnut flavors. This is a wonderful pairing for fuller bodied red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. It is an ideal pairing with corn-sweet Bourbon whiskies, and fuller bodied stouts and bock beers.
