Don Pepin cigars are made in the old Cuban fashion in Miami, Florida. A full bodied cigar with a unique composition and blend, the Blue label has an enjoyable flavor and exquisite aroma with an excellent burn rate.
The Blue Label uses an amazing cinnamon brown corojo wrapper, silky smooth and finished with a Cuban triple cap. The feel of the cigar is firm with a little give, but not spongy. An excellent cold draw reveals earthy, spicy flavors.
The cigar produces a great amount of aromatic smoke, and even though the draw was a bit uneven, it was never problematic. A light grey ash is produced which is fairly solid.
Easily toasted and lit, the Blue Label hits you with earth and cinnamon-clove spices right away, while pepper tickles the back of your throat. A great beginning to a wonderful smoke.
Easing up a bit in the middle, the chocolate and coffee flavors enter the picture and the smoke gets creamier. Spice continues to come and go especially in the finish.
As a finale, the spice ramps up again and really is noticeable on the lips and tongue. But the cigar is never harsh, and you are left with a smooth and creamy flavor that lasts a long time.
A master at blending tobaccos, Don Pepin's Blue Label delivers a rich, complex smoke that will be sure to be smoked to the nub every time.
