José "Pepín" García comes from a family of tobacco makers and entered the business in December 1961, when he was only 11 years of age, working at a cigar factory belonging to one of his uncles in the town of Báez, Province of Villa Clara, Cuba. During his long career in Cuba, he received countless distinctions and awards for his work, including the "Productivity Prize" for rolling 320 Julietas (7 x 48) in four hours. His dexterity and agility were also repeatedly compared by the Cuban press with those of a magician. Today, he owns his factory in Miami's Little Havana. It is considered by many in the cigar industry as one of the few factories that consistently produce the highest rated cigars.
Coated with a caramel-colored Corojo wrapper, the Don Pepin Cuban Classic uses tobacco grown from the black, fertile soils of Nicaragua. The result is a wide variety of flavors swirling throughout your palate with undeniable hints of earth, toasted cedar and black pepper. The aftertaste and aroma are sweet and pleasant; completing an interesting smoking experience that will leave you satisfied every time. This is the strongest Don Pepin available and is great for fans of full bodied cigars!
Rated '92', the Cuban Classic blend from Don Pepin Garcia has been named one of the Top 25 Cigars in the world: "A lovely cigar that has an elegant draw and burn. The blend is pleasant, with a toasted almond flavor, notes of wood and touches of leather on the palate."
