Don Pepin Garcia DPG Blue Label Toro Review
This is DPG’s signature blend – the Blue Label. The wrapper is a very dark brown color with a couple of medium sized veins.
It is fairly firm but slightly spongy without hard or soft spots. It feels like a cigar should.
It has a very strong floral and sweet smell to it. The draw was too tight after punching so I used a cutter on them. The draw was still a bit tight, but was much better.
The first third had a very nutty core flavor that had floral sweetness and a peppery finish. The white ash held on tight this whole third. It is medium in body and unfortunately is not producing a lot of smoke.
The second reminds me of nut butter with a faintly sweet floral finish. The burn is very even and the cigar is now medium/full bodied. The draw really opens up in the second third.
The final third is still medium/full bodied that is dominated by nutty, floral, and spicy flavors. It ihas a very peppery finish that lingers for quite some time! It burned evenly all the way down.
Overall, I would not consider the DPG Blue Label a complex cigar, but it definitely never got boring! It was a fun smoke the whole way through! It is in the medium/full range and packs a bit of a punch, so make sure you enjoy that type of cigar before purchasing! I liked it and will not hesitate to smoke one again in the future.
Flavor and Taste: 17/20
