The Don Pepin Garcia blue delicias is a 7×50 churchill size Nicaraguan puro with a Nicaraguan corojo wrapper and it has a 6 euro price tag here in The Netherlands, which is a great price for a 7 inch cigar. From the blue series I reviewed the 6×50 generoso in the past and the Famous Smoke Shop exclusive firecracker.
This cigar has a greasy dark wrapper with some veins. The cigar has a strong barnyard smell. The construction feels soft and inconsistent. The predraw is fine and I taste tobacco with a little bit of pepper.
I taste some sweet coffee with a little bit of herbs and pepper. Soon after I taste some wood with herbs, smoother and milder than expected from a Don Pepin Garcia smoke though. I taste wood and herbs, but the wood flavor is not the regular wood I taste so often, I can’t really tell what kind of wood it is. I taste some pepper in the aftertaste and the flavors are mild creamy.
After two inch the pepper disappears and right before I reach the middle point of the cigar I taste some cacao with the returned pepper and herbs. I still taste the funny but pleasant wood flavor. After two thirds I taste herbs with a peppery aftertaste. The pepper grows and grows in strength, now this is what I expect when I smoke a Don Pepin Garcia, this is his signature.
This cigar lasted me for an hour and forty minutes. The draw is great, but the smoke starts out poor, not much in volume and very thin although I get more and thicker smoke along the way. The burn needs to be corrected two times. The light colored ash is firm. This cigar if full bodied, it started out medium flavored but ended really strong and full flavored.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, I liked this cigar
