Oh boy, what can we say about Miami? It’s an absolute haven for cigar lovers. During the revolution in Cuba in the 50s, a number of the nation’s best tobacco farmers, cigar makers, and others fled the country. Tons of them landed in Miami, forever altering the character of the city. Today, about a third of people living in Miami are Cuban, if that tells you how many people came ashore in sunny Florida over the years.
“Don Pepin” took his time, though.
Born in Cuba, master blender Jose “Pepin” Garcia didn’t start a company in Miami until the early 2000s – but what a company it was! His work for Tatuaje put the brand on the map and helped it climb onto Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 lists year after year. With Tatuaje’s Miami cigars made in the sunshine state at El Rey de los Habanos, Don Pepin has scored yet another hit. It’s a continuation of a long and successful partnership.
What makes this one special? It’s the first generation Cuban-seed tobaccos that transform this one from a decent quality Nicaraguan cigar into a top shelf smoke. Light it up and you’ll get the flavors of leather, earth, wood, and a potent pepper punch that will wake you right up. For real, don’t play with this one.
One thing to keep in mind: this one is impossible to find sometimes. Production runs are limited and when it’s out, it’s often a wait to get it in stock again. If you see it available, get it.
