Embark on a journey through tobacco history with the Don Pepin Garcia 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Toro Extra. Before the era of My Father cigars, the legendary maestro Don Pepin Garcia, hailing from Báez, Cuba, laid the foundation for what would become an extraordinary second act in the tobacco industry. As the early 2000s dawned, Garcia transitioned from his illustrious career in Cuba to establish his own cigar empire, formalizing the El Rey de los Habanos factory in Miami in 2002.

Unveiling Excellence: The Don Pepin Garcia Legacy

Before My Father's cigars, there were Don Pepin Garcia cigars. In the early 2000s, the maestro de maestros from Báez, Cuba was just starting what would soon become one of the tobacco industry’s greatest “second acts” ever. After rising to nearly unparalleled success in his home of Cuba, José Garcia was turning the page and launching his own cigar company. In 2002, he formalized his El Rey de los Habanos factory in Miami and got right down to business.

A Celebration of Success: Don Pepin Garcia 20th Anniversary Limited Edition

Now, 20 years later, everyone who knows tobacco knows his name – or at least his nickname. And so, Don Pepin Garcia's 20th Anniversary Limited Edition cigars are a celebration of a lifetime of success. And he ain’t even done yet!

Craftsmanship and Flavor: The Essence of Don Pepin Garcia

This blend is the first part of a trilogy. It includes Don Pepin’s signature Nicaraguan tobaccos, including the fragile but flavorful Pelo de Oro leaf in the filler. The wrapper is a handsome Nicaraguan Habano 2000 that is absolutely dressed to the nines and ready for a proper formal event. You pour the whiskey (or perhaps pop some champagne?) and the cigar will do the rest.

A Symphony of Flavors: Experience the Don Pepin Garcia Difference

For those who have been living under a rock, Don Pepin has earned two Cigar of the Year awards (one for My Father Le Bijou 1922 and another for Flor de Las Antillas). He’s a master not just of flavor balancing and blending, but also of cigar construction. He can supervise the process from end to end and hand you a cigar that will absolutely have you swearing off anything else. Once you smoke a Don Pepin blend, you’re going to look at half the stogies on the market sideways afterward. It’s hard to measure up. And in this Don Pepin Garcia 20th Anniversary Limited Edition cigar, you’re getting his classic notes in total harmony.
