Don Pepin was one of Cuba`s most respected rollers when he fled the country and started rolling cigars in Miami with some other prominent defectors. The cigar is marketed as full bodied and is promoted as some of the most Cuban tasting non-Cuban cigars. The Cuban Classic is billed as a spicy cigar made from very select tobaccos. I had the opportunity to sample their Natural Robusto and what follows is my review of this cigar. This cigar comes from his “Black Label” line and is manufactured in Nicaragua.

My Father El Hijo (Quick Smoke Series)

My Father El Hijo

Origin : NicaraguaMy Father Cigars
Format : Robusto Extra
Size : 5 x 50
Wrapper : Ecuadorian Habano 2009
Filler : Nicaraguan
Binder : Nicaraguan
Hand-Made
Price : $9.75

The El Hijo was one of four exclusive cigars made for Smoke Inn's 15th anniversary last year.

The El Hijo is a light brown box-pressed cigar with visible seams and a few large veins. The triple cap is expertly placed; the cigar has a pretty open draw and features about a quarter inch of filler tobacco protruding past the foot of the wrapper. The wrapper and filler tobaccos smell strongly of black tea leaves. Construction is perfect with no soft spots, good amount of filling, and razor sharp burn that needs no touch-ups.

1st Third- Filler tobaccos start off with slightly bitter but floral qualities. Once the wrapper is lit, has some nuttiness, hint of cedar, but backed heavily by light milk chocolate and floral notes.
2nd Third- Bursts forth with tons of chocolate-malt-pepperiness. Ends with wood and nut flavors.
3rd Third- Hazelnut, mild milk chocolate, and lighter pepperiness. Ends full-bodied.

My Father El Hijo

This is probably my favorite My Father cigar I have had outside the #1 and Le Bijou Petit Robusto. This is a bit different in the fact that its pepperiness is latent but is so pronounced that the cigar will need more aging to show how good it really is. It seems blended to stand the test of time. If you got 'em still, wait another 2-3 years. Definitely a box purchase. Keep smokin' my friends,...

Beginning in 2011, the My Father Cigar Company began handing out special cigars to customers that purchased boxes at events. The My Father Special S is rumored to be based on the company’s very-limited 2007 release El Centurion. The sample smoked for review was one from a package of three I received after purchasing a box of My Father Cigars. As I began searching and asking for information on the blend, the closest answer I got is that the blend is based off the original El Centurion blend which is a Nicaraguan puro. Interestingly, there are actually two special “event-only” cigars that My Father Produces; the Special “S” and the Special “S” White Label. I was told by a very reputable dealer that the “White label” will stay an event only release, while you can find a few dealers that sell the “Special S” in boxes of three, which retail for about $30 a box.

I was really excited to see the old Series JJ line of Don Pepin cigars debut a new size, especially one of my favorite vitolas, the petit robusto. Revisiting the Series JJ line really excited me because first I have not smoked one in a really long time, second it’s one of my favorite cigar lines, and third it was one of the first brands that made me fall in love with cigars and the genius that is Don Pepin Garcia. The “Little Robusto Project” was the brainchild of Jerry Cruz, of Stogie Review, to commemorate his infant son’s passing and give awareness, and raise money, for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

For the last several years, Cigar King has had a significant stock of exclusive brands created by Don Pepin Garcia. Those brands included Habana Leon, Cuban Diplomat, Havana Soul, Nacionales W, and the no longer available Sancti Spiritus. Not a whole lot is known about these exclusives but I will shed some light on at least one of the brands - unfortunately they will no longer be around.

I have had several cigars with the Don Pepin Garcia name on them. When the opportunity was given to me to review this stick, I had to take it. I had never had this particular cigar, so I was looking forward to doing this one. I have never had a bad Don Pepin Garcia cigar either. So I knew, before I lit it, that I was going to be in a for a good time.

I have been a big fan of the regular My Father cigars, but never gave the Le Bijou line a chance until now. My local B&M, Habana House in Austin, had just gotten a new shipment of these in months ago and were recommended for me to try out by Abdul, the manager of Habana House. I obliged due to the fact that the new Le Bijou was in my favorite vitola, a petit or short robusto. I also had to try it due to the fact that the new Le Bijou was sporting the infamous pelo de oro wrapper. So here is what I thought…

As the Son of the Father & Son cigar review team known as the Tollaficionados, one would think that this would fit right in to our little theme. Well keep thinking. We have a special guest reviewer assisting me on laying forth the positives and negatives this time around. Uncle Bill from Ohio came into town to sit in on a session of tobacco worship, and give his opinions on the My Father Le Bijou 1922.
