Don Pepin Vintage Edition

Toro Gordo 6 × 60 DPVETG

The name behind some of the most notable and popular cigar brands in the industry, Jose ‘Don Pepin’ Garcia, master cigar-maker and legend in the world of cigars, has a history of vehemence and big dreams. Blended by Garcia himself in in Estelí, Nicaragua some of the finest, handcrafted, premium tobaccos were made in the My Father Cigars factory. As a whole - his son Jaime Garcia eventually joined ranks - the Garcia family has consistently excelled at producing top-notch, premium cigars creating a portfolio of award-winning My Father brands. Doubling as a contribution to the esteemed Tobacconists’ Association of America’s (TAA) Exclusive Series Program and to commence the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Don Pepin García brand, My Father Cigars released a new line evocative of a vintage vibe. An ode to its rich history of determination and drive culminating in a success- Introducing, the Don Pepin Vintage Edition a Nicaraguan Puro debuting in three sizes. Every aspect of the cigar from the packaging to ingredients is a snapshot of the dawning of the cigar industry. Beginning with its housing, likened to vintage music box, its artful presence is well-suited as any centerpiece in an array of spaces from your home to on display at a cigar store. A conversation starter all on its own, the rustic wooden box is clean and simplistic as it carefully conceals its treasures. Boldly on display in multiple iterations is the brand name and signature logo featuring strategically placed post-card like accents. At the interior the logo is large and in charge as it is proudly displayed on the lid before the eyes are drawn to the real reason we are all here. Haughtily, a red and gold band gleams and glistens against a dark, and slightly oiled cigar, the perfect backdrop to showcase the signature logo beautifully written in script. Said to be the original artwork and band from one of Pepin's very first cigars, one simply cannot quite express in words how visually striking seeing the Don Pepin Vintage Edition cigars are resting in all their glory. And now for the piece de resistance, the cigar! Rich in hue and giving off a slight sheen, the cigar utilizes a wrapper that has become quite popular and was once almost exclusively specific to Cuban cigars for decades - the coveted Corojo 99. An illusive hybrid made by Cuban engineers; the leaf is distinctively quite spicy flaunting its dark reddish-brown hue. Additionally, this variety often contributes a bit of nuttiness to the flavor profile. As a full-bodied Nicaraguan puro, its center is also hearty and lush with Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos enticing smokers with its medium to full body smoke. One will delight in a full range of delicious tasting notes of toast, cedar, pepper, and cream rounded out by a sharp and potent, but not overpowering spices. After spending decade after decade perfecting his craft and executing his vision, Jose Pepin created an indisputable legacy creating some of the most prestigious brands in the industry before migrating to America to continue his journey. No small fete, his accolades include holding down the No. 1 spot on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year list, not once but twice with the 96-rated Flor de las Antillas and the 97-rated My Father le Bijou 1922 respectively. All in all, the Garcia family can say they have another exceptional addition to their profile with the Don Pepin Vintage Edition.
