El Centurion Gladiadores by My Father

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, My Father | on 13 Jun 2013 | at 12:33 PM | 1853 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.......

La Duena Belicoso No. 2

Posted by Jack | in La Duena, My Father | on 10 Jan 2013 | at 11:30 AM | 1714 views

One of the cigars I searched for in 2012 with the most fervor, the La Duena finally made an appearance in the area.  While I had to purchase it from one of the shops that over price fairly regularly, I just couldn't pass it up.  Being blended by Pete Johnson and Don Pepin's Daughter, Janny Garcia, the pedigree of this smoke speaks volumes.  How was it?  Let's see.... Construction: Like most of Pete and Pepin's creations, it's a rustic looking cigar.  The band is elegant with a nice cameo feel and it really stands out against the deep almost black wrapper.  I love the cigars with substance rather than looks approach that Pete Johnson takes to his creations and this is a great example. Pre-light... Continue reading »»

 


 

My Father Special Edition 2012

Posted by Jack | in My Father | on 29 Dec 2012 | at 3:16 PM | 1437 views

When my Fianceé 's Mom gave me a gift certificate to The Wharf for Christmas, I already had a plan for it.  They just received a box of My Father Special Editions (blended by Don Pepin's Son, Jaime) and the day after Christmas, I stopped in and cashed in for one.  Anything the Garcia family puts out gets me excited like my Son with a new video game.  So, was my giddiness well founded?  Silly question...but let's see..... Construction: This is a beautiful cigar.  The wrapper is milk chocolate brown, smooth with very few veins, and perfectly rolled.  The band is simply beautiful - a real work of art. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: I picked up a nice sweet tobacco and woody aroma out of... Continue reading »»

 


 

Don Pepin Le Bijou 1922 Petite Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Don Pepin Garcia, My Father | on 03 Oct 2012 | at 4:49 PM | 1527 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...
