Quick Smoke: CI Legends Yellow Label

21 Mar 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Made exclusively by Don Pepin Garcia as part of Cigar International’s Legends Series, this toro (5.7 x 54) features a golden wrapper and firm construction. The cigar demonstrated consistent flavors from start to finish: mostly graham and cedar. Towards the end of the medium-bodied smoke, grassy, slightly-bitter notes emerge. While not a terrible stick, I did find it to be somewhat uninspired and definitely lacking the depth of flavor I’ve come to expect from Pepin smokes.

Verdict = Sell.
