My Father El Centurion cigars started small, as a limited edition release. A couple thousand boxes or so hit the market in 2007, and that was that. But in true cigar fashion, a decent blend never really dies, it just goes to the back of the shelf for a while, to be revived if and when the time is right. Maybe it’s the quality of a certain crop, maybe it’s consumer demand, maybe it’s just a whim, but eventually, cigars can come back to life.
So it is with My Father El Centurion cigars.
The occasion this time was the 10th anniversary of the creation of the company’s first cigars, which originally happened in the early 2000s. Don Pepin Garcia had labored for decades in Cuba, becoming a master roller and blender. Eventually, he left the island to seek his destiny and formed a company in Miami. He called it, “El Rey de los Habanos,” and put it right in Little Havana. Early success creating blends for Tatuaje helped Garcia make a name for himself in the US and elsewhere, and the company was well and truly launched.
This incarnation of My Father El Centurion cigars feature a different blend. There are four different kinds of Nicaraguan tobacco: Criollo, Corojo Habano, and Sancti Spiritus, with Criollo ‘98 for the wrapper. The flavor of the smoke offers leather, pepper, and is both spicy and sweet. It’s an intriguing mix of tobaccos from a highly accomplished blender that few can match.
