Don Pepin Garcia 15th Anniversary Cigar
Cigar Review: Don Pepin Garcia 15th Anniversary LE Toro



To celebrate the 15 years since the launch of his original Don Pepin Garcia brand, My Father Cigars has released the Don Pepin Garcia 15th Anniversary. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 15 years since Garcia released his namesake cigar brand, because Don Pepin’s cigars helped to launch the trend toward full bodied peppery Nicaraguan cigars that are so popular now. Coming in two sizes (robusto and toro), the Don Pepin Garcia 15th Anniversary is limited to 2,000 boxes of 14 individually coffined cigars of each size.

Caldwell Cigars the T
Cigar Review: The T. Toro by Caldwell



Matt Booth, Robert Caldwell and AJ Fernandez are all accomplished cigar makers on their own. Bringing the three of them together is similar to bringing together the 1992 Olympic Basketball “Dream Team,” and the result is definitely a winner. The cigar that comes from this collaboration bears the name The Truth or simply “The T.”, and is truly a great medium bodied cigar coming from AJ Fernandez’s factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Instead of simply being mild cigars lacking in flavor that are primarily for novice cigar enthusiasts, these new cigars are complex mild to medium bodied cigars that can be enjoyed by both the novice and the seasoned cigar enthusiast.
