El Centurion Gladiadores by My Father

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, My Father | on 13 Jun 2013 | at 12:33 PM | 1978 views

It's pretty well known in the cigar world that Tatuaje is celebrating their tenth anniversary this year.  But did you know that Don Pepin is as well?  To commemorate the release of his first limited release cigar, Pepin has resurrected the same brand that he released a decade before with the El Centurion.  If you were lucky enough to have smoked the original this new one may be a bit of a shock.  It's a totally different blend sporting the same name.  In perusing the web looking for specs on this cigar, I have to give my thanks to Halfwheel.com for his amazing review of the pre-release El centurion 2013.  So, how do I think this new release of an old brand is?  Let's see.......

Flor de las Antillas toro

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, Flor de las Antillas | on 21 Feb 2013 | at 11:34 AM | 4142 views

I look forward to Cigar Aficionado's top 25 list every year.  It's no secret that I love anything Don Pepin blends.   So, this year, I was happy as a clam to see their family garnered numero uno for 2012.  I smoked one of these during the summer, and while I didn't review it, I did recall it being a terrific cigar.  The Wharf got them in at the end of January and they went through two boxes in 8 hours!  They re-ordered 12 boxes and they are, at the time of this writing, down to a box and a half remaining.  If that is any indication as to the quality of the Flor de las Antillas, it would appear that we have a cigar...

San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol Belicoso

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, San Cristobal | on 01 Dec 2012 | at 3:21 PM | 2022 views

I have walked past the San Cristobal in several humidors since they popped up in 2009.  I always chalked them up as a run-of-the-mill cigar with an old Cuban name.  What I didn't know was that they are a Don Pepin creation.  During our trip to Gatlinburg Tennessee last weekend, I picked one up from Smokezy Tobacco Shop.  So, was it worth the wait?  Let's see.... Construction: The Seleccion Del Sol is covered in a very nice red-brown sungrown wrapper.  Like most of Don Pepin's (and Pete Johnson's for that matter) creations it has a distinctive old world rustic appearance.  The veins were slight as well.  One of the things I was most excited to see was the blunted point....a true belicoso.  Most of the...

The Last One....

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia | on 05 Oct 2012 | at 2:34 PM | 1344 views

Well, I am finally down to my last Tabacos Baez Serie H.  Ah, it breaks the heart.  I can say that I intend to get a replacement batch as soon as I can.  Although that might be a while.  Cigars International has dropped the price significantly.  Check my review for details of this wonderful cigar.

Don Pepin Le Bijou 1922 Petite Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, My Father | on 03 Oct 2012 | at 4:49 PM | 1650 views

Today was Wharf Wednesday and I decided to try something I haven't had before.  So what did I choose?  A miniscule My Father selection.  I love Don Pepin's cigars so I just had a feeling about this one....and boy did I pick a good one!  I am typically leery of smaller cigars so a petite robusto in this case is a big step for me.  Enough babble....Let's see how this cigar smokes.... Construction: The Don Pepin Le Bijou 1922 Petite Robusto is a pretty little cigar.  Really...little...the size of two wooden matches.  A nice pale chocolate brown wrapper with only a few small veins covers this baby.  I noticed it was also fairly heavy for something so small.  The foot also had a nice open...
