Moving on to the El Centurion’s flavor, it begins with pepper and earth.  These two flavors dominate the first third, but some sweet notes are also evident.  The second third continues with the pepper, and I also begin to detect some coffee and raisin notes that are truly delicious.  The final third is sweet and chocolaty.  Needless to say, the complexity is very enjoyable from beginning to end.

Don Pepin and the Garcia family definitely know what they’re doing when it comes to making cigars, and the El Centurion Robusto is no exception.  I found nothing wrong with the cigar, but I did find plenty of things I loved, especially the complexity.  This would be a great after dinner smoke.  I wouldn’t advocate smoking it while golfing or mowing the lawn, as you really should be sitting down so you can concentrate on all of those great flavors.  I mentioned that this newer version is cheaper, and you can get the Robusto for about $7 per single.  Compare that to the original’s $12 to $15 price tag, and it’s hard to beat.  You can also find the El Centurion in packs of five or boxes of 20.  I’d spring for a box personally, simply due to the flavor.

The My Father El Centurion Robusto earns a rating of four out of four stars.

Inception 518

Inception is not only one of my favorite movies, it’s also a cigar!  Now I don’t know if there’s any link between this stogie for JSR Cigar Distributors in Houston and the movie (doubtful), but it does bring back some good memories.  Anyway, Inception cigars aren’t widely distributed, but I was able to get my hands on the 518 which I’ll be smoking for this review.  Let’s begin, shall we?

The Inception 518 measures 5 x 50.  It also comes in the BCD (Torpedo) and 288 (Robusto) formats.  The cigar’s filler is a blend of Honduran, Mexican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos.  The binder is Costa Rican Criollo 98, while the wrapper is Nicaraguan Criollo 98.  In terms of strength, the Inception 518 is listed as full-bodied.
