The blend that started it all for Jose "Don Pepin" Garcia is also the first cigar to bear his name. We're talking about the Don Pepin Garcia Original Blue Label. While most production of Pepin's cigars are made in Nicaragua, the Don Pepin Original Blue Label is still made in Florida. They were originally made on Calle Ocho in Miami, at the small El Rey de Los Habanos cigar factory but they are now made at My Father Cigar Co. corporate headquarters in Doral, FL.
The Don Pepin Garcia Original Blue Label cigars have served as both the benchmark and inspiration for many of the My Father cigars produced. Utilizing a great blend of Nicaraguan-grown filler and binder tobaccos along with an oily cinnamon-brown colored Corojo Oscuro wrappers, it's easy to see why this has been the hallmark brand of Don Pepin Garcia since it was introduced.
Expect the Don Pepin Garcia Original Blue Label cigars to be medium-to-full in strength but full of flavor. Tasting notes include leather, cedar and hints of pepper. This Nicaraguan puro is a shinning star in Don Pepin's portfolio of premium cigars and it's easy to understand how this cigar received ratings as high as 93 points from Cigar Aficionado Magazine!
