Quick Smoke: Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic Robusto

15 Mar 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Don Pepin Cuban Classic

I don’t know what it is about these Don Pepin Cuban Classics, but they’ve been difficult to figure out—at times excellent, other times just fair. Unfortunately, this wasn’t one of the better cigars I’ve smoked from what is, in my experience, Don Pepin’s most inconsistent blend. The smoke was woody and full-bodied but lacking the complexity and balance that accompanies some of the Pepin Blacks I’ve most enjoyed. Along with the woodiness was a hint of bitterness that wandered in and out. Despite that, the construction was excellent, and this cigar is certainly worth a look as one of Pepin’s most affordable creations.

Verdict = Hold.
