Don Pepin Garcia series JJ torpedo

This nice 5.75 x 52 torpedo is a Nicaraguan puro with a Nicaraguan Corojo oscuro wrapper. This blend was developed by Don Pepin and his son Jaime Garcia. The cigar has a barnyard aroma to it and feels well constructed.
I get a full flavored pepper and wood. The pepper fades away quickly but the cedar remains. After an inch I get hints of coffee and chocolate on my palate. Halfway the cigar, the pepper returns and soon after that a light coffee flavor is noticeable. The wood flavor is consistent and all the other flavors are build around it. The encore is a bit stronger and more flavorful, I taste wood and chocolate, with a peppery flavor on my tongue.
The smoke on this cigar is amazing; I get a lot from it. The ash is white and the burn is close to perfect. This is a medium to full bodied cigar, full flavored.
Would I buy this cigar again? You can count on that.
