Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic by My Father Cigars

COVID-19 Day 841:
 Ashton Cigars, La Aroma De Cuba, Mexican Cuban-Seed Oscuro, New Blend, San Andres Oscuro Well, to the point and blunt… not what I expected from this coveted name and brand in this Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic by My Father Cigars…

Pretty benign and straight forward dry tobacco flavors… not quite the spicy pepper blast that I was expecting or hoping to experience, but there was some spice there nonetheless …

Not as full and rich as I expected… I have another one so I’ll try it again in a month or so.

Stay Smoky
Stay Chill

In 2016 My Father Cigars released an exclusive Connecticut wrapped version of their Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic line for Thompson Cigar. The Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic Connecticut uses the same blend as the original Cuban Classic that has been on the market since 2006 but replaces the Corojo ’99 wrapper with an Ecuadorian Connecticut. – Blind Mans Puff
