Don Pepin was born in a small town in the Villa Clara province of Cuba. He has since become one of the finest master rollers the cigar industry has ever seen. Beginning his journey in the tobacco industry, Pepin worked in a family owned factory at the age of 11.... - More He worked there for forty years, producing cigars at the Felix Rodriguez export cigar factory in Baez. During this time, his talents began to gain notice in Cuba. At one "contest", he rolled 320 7 x 48 cigars in four hours! He was known as the magician to many, as he paid close attention to detail while maintaining his lightning-quick pace. He helped blend cigars from such brands as Cohiba, Partagas and Montecristo. In the '90s, he was in charge of the Quality Assurance Department for Cohiba cigars.
In 2001, he left Cuba for Miami, Florida, where he quickly established his own company and factory. El Rey de los Habanos is the company in which Don Pepin is the Master-Blender, as well as the President and CEO. His goal is to recreate Cuban cigars as closely as possible, without using actual Cuban tobacco. He employs quality Nicaraguan tobacco, and the majority of his cigars are medium-full bodied. Don Pepin is also famous for the flavor of his cigars, as well as the triple cap finish that all of his vitolas contain. Don Pepin creates his own cigars at his factory, but has also created a plethora of "house brands" for a variety of manufacturers, including Tatuaje, which has been well received by the cigar industry. His popularity has only increased as each blend he creates, he continues to impress us all. His ability to create fine cigars at an affordable price, is something that every aficionado can appreciate.
Pepin's Garcia cigar brand is made at Pepin's factory in Miami. There are three variations of this cigar, the Blue Label, the JJ and the Black Label. All three cigars use quality Nicaraguan tobacco in a variety of combinations. Each box of these cigars is stamped with the date of manufacture. The Blue Label was the first cigar to be released in this line. These full-bodied cigars pack quite the punch and are not for the novice smoker. The Blue Label cigar uses an oily Nicaraguan Corojo Oscuro leaf. Coming in boxes of twenty five, these cigars are worth checking out if you enjoy powerful cigars that have something to say. These cigars received an 88 and 89 rating in Cigar Aficionado, as well.
Don Pepin's JJ cigar was developed by Pepin and his son, Jaime Garcia. This cigar isn't as powerful as the Blue Label, but might not be for the smoker who enjoys a nice mild cigar. Coming in boxes of twenty four, these cigars use only the finest Nicaraguan tobacco for the binder and filler, and a Nicaraguan Corojo Oscuro wrapper to finish it off. For the smoker looking for something a little bit different, try a Don Pepin JJ cigar today!
