"Too mild to be a Pepin"

Review Notes: Picked some of these up not knowing what to expect. Nice label and wrapper. It cut poorly with my guillotine and was coming undone throughtout the duration of the cigar, not too much fun. This affected the draw which may be why I thought it was too mild. Mild pepper taste that turned to a dull earth. I pitched it a little more than halfway through (by then I had exposed it to the binder). This seems like a don pepin "bargin" brand. If it's not, it should be.

"Expected Better"

Review Notes: After smoking two of these now I've concluded it's not for me. This is a beautiful cigar but that's about it. The flavor is one dimensional with an unpleasant bitter finish. I love several Pepin blends -- this isn't one of them.

"Still Don't Know What I was waiting For?"

Review Notes: After nearly a year in the humidor, I still don't know what I was waiting for? A lot of hype about Don Pepin and this cigar. I was looking for a creamy, toasty, but strong cigar, well one out of three isn't that good. The strength was the only thing that was there and not that smooth after a year in the hole. Also, the Serie JJ Belicoso was very one-dimensional. The same strong taste, and not really that good either. I wish mine had the complexity that "Kaisersosei" mentions in the review below. I had some issues with the wrapper being dry an flaky, and the burn was nothing spectacular. I can't recommend this cigar and won't be buying them again.

"Not for me"

Review Notes: The flavor profile on this, although complex, was not to my liking. Started off with a strong non-pepper spice, wood and strong leather taste. At midstick the spice receded and the stick turned earthy with a fruity tartness (like citrus.) Doesn't sound bad, does it? The problem for me was in the finish--spice & stale tobacco. I expected something creamy & sweet, but it never came for me. The aroma of the smoke was also very pungent--it chased my wife off the porch (and all the bugs, too!) Nice looking and well-built stick, though. The draw started off very tight, but loosened; straight burn, produced a good volume of smoke. Full bodied and medium strength that built slowly toward the end. Got these in a trade, but I wouldn't buy any more, especially at retail prices.

"Just not that great"

Review Notes: Immaculate construction just like all Pepin smokes, not a "bad" cigar but just not a great smoke. Sorta one-dimensional. Good flavor, but not much depth.
