Don Pepin Garcia Blue Label Toro Gordo


If you like fat cigars with large ring gauges, Don Pepin Garcia has a new addition to its Blue Label line that may pique your interest. It's called the Toro Gordo, and it measures 6 x 56. Although Garcia has been responsible for the creation of tons of cigars over the years, the Toro Gordo is the first one he has released with such measurements.

Like other cigars in the Blue Label line, the Toro Gordo has an interior composed solely of Nicaraguan tobaccos. It has a Corojo Oscuro wrapper coating its exterior. The Blue Label is made for more experienced smokers, as it is full-bodied in strength. It's also said to have plenty of flavor. The Toro Gordo is handmade at Don Pepin's El Rey de Los Habanos factory in Miami.

A single Blue Label Toro Gordo sells for around $6 to $7, and it comes in boxes of 18. If the Toro Gordo is a bit too thick for your tastes, the Blue Label line offers ten other sizes for you to choose from that all have smaller ring gauges.

Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Super Gordo


The Blue Label Toro Gordo may be fat, but it has nothing on the Super Gordo from Jaime Garcia's Reserva Especial line. It measures 5 ¾ x 66. No, that's not a typo. It's ring gauge is that big. Of course, one would have to wonder just how comfortable it is to smoke such a large cigar. Luckily, to make the smoking experience a bit more comfortable, the cigar comes with a Belicoso tip.

The Super Gordo may be on its own in terms of thickness, but it follows other cigars in the Reserva Especial line in terms of composition. It's filler and binder are both Nicaraguan, and it is topped off with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Strength is listed as being medium to full-bodied. As the name would suggest, Jaime Garcia is responsible for blending the line, as he follows in his famous father's footsteps of creating new lines for cigar fans to enjoy.

Each Super Gordo sells for around $10, and it comes in boxes of 20. Not feeling up to the challenge of a cigar with a 66 ring gauge? You can try one of the lines five other sizes that are not as thick: the 4 ½ x 50 Petit Robusto, the 5 ¼ x 52 Robusto, the 5 ½ x 52 Belicoso, the 6 x 54 Toro, and the 6 x 60 Toro Gordo.
