What they have to say about the cigar:
Oh man. I brought the big guns to this fight.
Let’s start off with the name of it- yes, it’s “Don Pepin” a.k.a Jose Garcia of My Father Cigars, Tatuaje, Flor de Antillas, and many others. It’s called “blue.” If you’ve not had this one, and consider yourself an aficionado, you need to remedy this quickly. Peppery to start, peppery in the 2nd and all the way to the nub, this firecracker delivers in both flavor and potency. Despite its heaviness, it is still amazingly well balanced, not knocking you out initially, but gradually getting there.
I had the Exquisitos, which is their Corona size. They make a Toro Grande (6 x 62) that is box pressed that I would love a box of. You’ll find these for about $9.00 or so, depending on where you shop.
It got 90+ reviews elsewhere, but really, who cares about that? This is a 5 Star smoke all the way.
