Don Pepin Garcia cigars are a royal, full-bodied treat for cigar smokers who crave rich, spicy tobacco taste. Created by Cuban-born master blender José Pepin Garcia (of Tatuaje and Padilla Miami 8/11 cigars fame), these hearty puros are worthy of having his name on it. Each cigar blended with Nicaraguan Corojo & Criollo long-filler tobaccos seamlessly rolled in Nicaraguan Corojo wrappers. The cigars are identical in color and burn evenly with a bold, balanced, yet non-overpowering flavor.
This cigar was a sheer pleasure to smoke heavy in the hand excellent construction a perfect draw with hints of cedar,cocoa,and white pepper through the nose with a long sweet finish Bravo Don Pepin Very Well Done ; )
Well I now have two of my six humidors stocked with Don pepin Garcias and I do beleive there will be more and more taking over my collection. They have become my all time favorate cigar. I never Had a cigar like this that was so well balanced and full of flavor before in my life. He must be the best blender ever IMO to make a cigar with so much taste and flavor but leaves no bitter after taste what so ever behind on the palate. I tryed the robustos and they were so Good I had to express my opinion again. I had the honor of meeting Mr Don Pepin Garcia at a cigar party and he is one of the nicest and most humble induviduals you probably could ever meet and now everytime I light up one of his masterpeices I not only enjoy such a wonderfull cigar but relive my once in a life time experience of meeting him .Thankyou famous Smoke for offering his cigars at such reasonable prices and thankyou Mr Don Pepin Garcia for taking so much pride in your cigars and it really shows in the end result.
This is definitely one of my favorite cigars. It just tastes amazing. It is on the full side, but never harsh. I would describe it as spicy and woody. As soon as you put the cigar to your lips you can feel that spice. It definitely has that Pepin-esque quality about it, so if you like Pepin's work, you should love this cigar. The only downside to this cigar is that the burn sometimes is not even. A few touch ups may be required, no big deal. If you are anal about a perfect burning cigar then look elsewhere, but if you are looking for one of the best tasting cigars around (including Cuba) than look no farther. Definitely a Top 5 smoke in my opinion.
I ve tried a few different versions of Don Pepin Garcia over the years, some I didn t care for; however, this one is a very nice cigar. After allowing them to rest in the humidor which I do for all my online purchases , these really came on with tons of flavor, some pepper and a hint of sweetness. They have an easy draw, with a lot smoke output, with medium to full flavors; slight pepper, cocoa, and hint of coffee with a clean, white ash. One of my favorites... one that I need to re-order!
