"The King of Consistency"
I love the torpedo vitola but hate the construction issues many seem to have. This stick delivers typical Pepin flavours of coffee, white pepper and leathery tobacco with a perfect draw and burn, and has done so 48 times out of 48 from the two boxes I ve smoked. This is the cigar I hand out to people I can t afford to disappoint.

Strong, flavorful, well made. Very good cigar. Almost as good as the toro size.

"Wood and Perfume"
A woodsy mild perfume tasting cigar, this one will deliver. Don Pepin Garcia Imperiales.
This size departs from the pepper, coffee, and leather blast that some of the other Pepin Blue sizes deliver. Good smoke, just different.
Based upon 4 taste test out of the same box of cigars.

"ONE OF THE BEST CIGARS - PERIOD"
The Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic was rated a 92 by "Cigar Aficianado" and ranked #17 in its Top 25 Cigars of 2007. The last tasting of the Imperiales was in March 2006 sponsored by "Cigar Insider" and was rated 90. Most of Don Pepin Garcia's cigars enjoy ratings of 88+ and his company, El Rey e Los Habanas, is synonomous with quality cigars. Headquartered on a little side street in Little Havana, Miami, and expanded to Nicaragua, he also makes the Padilla and Tatuaje. This great lineage really comes through with the Imperiales. A perfectly constructed torpedo in an oily wrapper. Its fine draw delivers complex cedar, leather and coffee flavors. The nutty finish has a hint of graham cracker. Simply an exquisite smoke!

Had one of these last night while watching to town's fourth of July fireworks. It was extremely tasty!! A liitle strong but smooth so that I didn't start sweating or feeling sick or anything. The only complaint that I have is that it burned a little fast. I was done with this in 30 minutes which I wished it had taken longer based on what I paid for it.

"One Great Cigar!"
Since being introduced to this brand, it has been my favorite cigar. The construction is superb-great roll and perfect draw. The cigar is full flavored without being overpowering. All this and it's made in America.
