Introduced late in 2006, the Don Pepín García Black Edition is the newest and most affordable blend in the amazing trio of cigars that make up the Don Pepín García line. The Black Edition is also referred to as the “Cuban Classic” for its striking resemblance to old time Cuban cigars. It is made in Pepín’s factory in Esteli, Nicaragua and like the Don Pepín García Blue label and the Don Pepín García Serie JJ, it is a Nicaraguan puro using Pepín’s famous Corojo 99 wrapper. The cigar is medium to full-bodied, carrying that now classic Pepín flavor.
A smooth caramel-colored Corojo wrapper and a beautiful Cuban triple-cap, the Don pepin 1979 Black edition starts with the typical JDPG bang for about a half inch then softens to a creamy base flavor of toasted cedar and rich coffee with notes of bittersweet cocoa, nuts and black pepper. The aftertaste and aroma are sweet and pleasant.
