WHAT IS A PANETELA? – I’m sure you’re curious as to what is unique about a Panetela cigar. Well, at first glance you will see a long and thinly shaped cigar. The length can range anywhere from 5 to 7.5 inches, with a ring gauge of 34-38. They hold a pajero shape – like many Cuban cigars these days. The petite size and lesser use of filler means the cigar roller needs to pay these bad boys some extra care. They will vouch for us when we say; they aren’t easy to make. We’re certain you will notice that the flavour of the wrapper leaf proves more prominent than the binder and filler tobaccos in Panetelas. They’re great for all you smokers who enjoy plenty of concentration, with a longer burn time. So now you have the low down on what exactly to expect from a Panetela, here’s some of our much-loved recommendations:
