Three new releases from Don Pepin


Cigar industry icon Don Pepin Garcia has recently put his master skills to work with the creation of three new cigars for exclusive release to the huge online retailer, Famous Smoke Shop. The three new releases include the Famous Signature series by Garcia Family, the Maroma Fuerte, and the Siboney Reserve.

Garcia is the first to create a cigar for the retailer's new Famous Signature Series, which is an exclusive series that will see more creations from other well-known manufacturers in the future. The Famous Signature Series by Garcia Family comes in three sizes: the 5x50 Robusto, the 6.5x52 Torpedo, and the 7x50 Churchill. Among flavors that can be found in the medium to full-bodied stick are spice and wood. The cigar's filler is composed of a blend of Esteli and Condega Criollo tobaccos from Nicaragua. It is bound by both a Nicaraguan Habano and an Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf. Finishing the cigar off Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and a triple cap. You can look to pay around $100 for a box of 20.

Pepin's second recent contribution to the Famous Smoke Shop is the Maroma Fuerte. The Fuerte is the third release from the Maroma line, and comes in three sizes: the 5x50 Robusto, the 6x50 Toro, and the 7x48 Churchill. The Maroma Fuerte lives up to its name (fuerte equals strong in English) with its notes of spice and wood that give it plenty of kick. Nicaraguan Criollo and Habano Ligero tobaccos make up its filler, and it has a Nicaraguan binder as well. Completing the Fuerte is an Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper. The Maroma Fuerte is affordably priced, with boxes of 20 available for around $50.

Don Pepin's last creation recently released by Famous Smoke Shop is the Siboney Reserve. This full-bodied smoke features wood and spice flavors and comes in three sizes: the 5x50 Robusto, the 6.5x54 Torpedo, and the 7x50 Churchill. Filling the Siboney Reserve is a combination of Nicaraguan Jalapa and Condega Corojo tobaccos. It has a combined Nicaraguan '98 Criollo and Honduran Habano binder that is completed with a Nicaraguan Habano Rosado wrapper. A triple cap adds a final touch as well. A box of 20 costs approximately $80.

That concludes the April Editions of new cigars to look for. Try some of them out, and let others know what you think of them!
