Although I do not intend to make a formal review, with all the bells and whistles, I would like to share my experience with this cigar.
I walked in my local cigar store with my freshly brewed, unsweetened, strong coffee in a stainless steel mug. I had a progress report to write for my internship. As I was browsing the humidor, one of the sales people approached me. I explained that I was looking for a thin yet long cigar to go with my coffee. We went over several options before arriving to this Don Pepin.
I used a cedar strip to carefully toast the foot and give the cigar a nice, even cherry. The flavors enthralled me from the first draw. The first sip of coffee complemented the flavor perfectly. The ash was a perfect white right from the start. The cigar was tightly packed, yet the draw was comfortable, and not tiring. After about halfway, I started feeling a little light-headed. I eased on the coffee a little bit.
Overall, I loved the experience. I finished my progress report much faster than I had anticipated, and had ample time to enjoy smoking the rest of the cigar, and only focus on the cigar. This is one of the best cigars I have ever smoked.
