I had been meaning to try some of Don Pepin's other cigars.  I mean, I don't want to turn into a one-trick-pony and looking over my slew of Tatuaje reviews, I realized I am getting close to becoming just that.  So, typically on Sundays, I visit The Wharf and enjoy a cigar or two before heading to the grocery store - you know, to calm my nerves before I brave the crowd.  This weekend was no exception and I ended up grabbing a Tatuaje that I love and a Don Pepin " original" blue label.  How was it?  Let's find out....

Construction: No surprises here.  Flawless construction.  Not a blemish on the thing and it weighed quite heavy in the hand.

Pre-light Aroma and Draw: There is a nice rich fermented tobacco aroma out of the cellophane with the blue label.  After clipping the draw was nice and open - allowing me to taste more of that tobacco flavor that the unlit aroma provided.  Expectations were high.

Light and Burn: Two cigar matches blazed up and the blue took to life.  The burn was simply excellent too with nice light gray ash that liked to cling to the cigar for a long while before dropping off.

Tasting: Very earthy and leathery with that hallmark opening spice that Don Pepin is known for.  It was positively delicious and I kept looking at it saying " dang that is a good cigar" ....Always a good sign.

Value: The toro size I smoked runs just under $10.  Not too bad but certainly not a bargain smoke.

Final Thoughts: Don Pepin continues to impress the heck out of me with offering after offering.  Try as I might, I can't find one cigar he has created that I dislike.  All I have to hear is his name and I will smoke it.
