Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic – Cigar Review


Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic Robusto Review

Time to smoke another Cuban seed cigar!

The DPG Cuban Classic has a mildly veiny light brown wrapper that is fairly dry with very little oil.

It does have some hard spots, but the draw is nice after I used my punch on it.  The draw is a bit loose, but not bad at all.  It also has a very thick cap on it.  That is a huge plus because it should hold together very nicely.

The Cuban Classic has a very pungent earthy smell with a hint of coffee.


I started it up and found that this DPG has a a very peppery core with some cedar and spice.  The first third was medium bodied with a faintly sweet finish.  The burn was nice and even, unaffected by the areas that were packed a bit harder than others.

The peppery spice increased in the second third and the sweet finish began to fade as it increased to medium-full body.  It did begin to become a bit sour and harsh, but that went away after I knocked the first ash off.  The burn is now becoming a minor issue, but does not need correction.

The final third retained the peppery spice, but did introduce a nice deep coffee flavor that left a lingering  buttery coating on my mouth.  It also increased to full body.  I  did correct the burn after the second ash fell off, and that solved the problem for the remainder of the cigar.


Overall, the Cuban Classic was a fairly straight forward Cuban seed cigar.  No surprises here.  I did enjoy the spice and coffee flavors, and the final third was especially fun.  It really left a nice tingling on my lips.  I paired it with a Fort Collins Chocolate Stout, which complimented the sweet finish of the first third nicely.  The construction of this DPG was not perfect and it was not a complex blend of tobacco like many DPG’s, but it was a nice smoke when all was said and done.
