El Centurion by My Father Cigars

Allow me to re-introduce...El Centurion.

​No doubt you’ve heard of Jose “Pepin” Garcia, one of the great cigar makers of our time. And chances are you’ve sampled some of his work, but I can guarantee you’ve never seen anything like this before. Originally a limited-edition cigar, El Centurion is back and here to stay.

Staying true to the original blend, Pepin packs the El Centurion with all well-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. The kicker here is he incorporates the super-unique Sancti Spiritus leaf which morphs this blend into a spicy-sweet beast with notes of pepper and leather. Medium to full in body, El Centurion is tasty right out of the box and after a few months of diligent aging, the real fireworks begin!

El Centurion is available in two different wrapper varieties. The H-2K version comes wrapped in a top secret Connecticut sun grown wrapper from a hybrid Havana 2000 seed that produces an intensly flavorful cigar. The others come wrapped in an oily sun grown Criollo '98 leaf.

Good news, El Centurion by My Father Cigars has received a well-deserved 90-point rating, and the H-2K version has scored as high as 93-points, noting: "Covered in a toothy, oily wrapper, this cigar delivers a flavorful balance of cedar and tobacco spiced with some pepper notes."

Don't think twice, try it!
I've been a long time fan of the Don Peppin line, my favorite being the Le Bijou 1922, and of course the venerable Blue label. I have been sampling others at a lower price range looking for ones that would fit the bill when I wasn't feeling quite as rich. The Centurion definitely hit the mark for me. Great construction, razor sharp burn to the end and chalky white ash. Spice on light off with a nutty bite reminiscent of a Nub Habano. Perfectly Mid to full body and lots of smoke. It settled down after the first inch and was consistent in flavor, almost letting me down until surprisingly well before the usual sweet spot it blasted me with spice for another inch or so then back to the previous creamy and peppery beginning. It finished off at the usual sweet spot with another hit of spice and pepper all the way to the end where it became a little charcoal to the nub. All in all a fantastic smoke and well worth the money.

Rich and potent smoke
Very rich smoke. Probably not for everyone and probably not the first cigar you would want to smoke if you are planning on having more than one cigar. I thought the cigar smelled a bit like Copenhagen. Smoke was oily and dense. Construction and burn were top notch. I have smoked two of these bought at different times and from different places but the experience was nearly identical.

Celebrate Good Times (with Don Pepin)!
Received a Don Pepin Garcia El Centurion Robusto at this year's Big Smoke Las Vegas. It's been in my humidor since then, but me and a buddy both got big job offers, and we needed something to celebrate. Chose the El Centurion to go along with a nice Glenfiddich 12yo single malt. Smoked mid-day, Pacific Northwest, driving rain, but a steady temp of 61 on the smoking porch next to the fire pit. I've always been a fan of Don Pepin/My Father products...this El Centurion was no exception. A smooth draw, with lots of creamy smoke, hints of cayenne pepper, coffee, and leather. Stored at 63%, this smoke required one light beginning to end, and was absolutely perfect in construction. I'll be ordering more of these, and CI will be my source...if you need a great smoke at a great price to celebrate special occasions (or share with friends), you can't go wrong with the El Centurion.

Another amazing Pepin
He has to be my favorite blender of all time. Every one is a good cigar for the value, but some are exceptional among the best out there. This one in an incredible size, although I might prefer a non box pressed corona. Not as full bodied as his others but it has a pleasant nutty character with his style of flavor.

Smooth and amazing
El Centurion is a reliable a great tasting smoke. Smooth taste, nice complex flavor. Every stick burns even with a nice white ash and rarely needs to be touched up. My absolute favorite smoke.

Perfect for smoking on a perfect night!
I smoked this bad boy on the first night of fall on my neighbor's driveway, while sitting on a couch he was disposing of the following day. It was perfect. I have been a fan of what the Garcias produce for a few years, and this is easily one of my favorite for a medium-bodied, smoky treat! The wrapper has a delightful sheen to it and looks flawless (like most of their cigars). The stick itself is firm, but draws like a dream. And the flavor on this is heavy on leather (which I love) with a little bit of sweet and a little bit of spice thrown in. I will be ordering more from CI!

Wedding favorite!
As father of the bride I was assigned three very important tasks. Pick music for the DJ to play for some of us older folks. Give away my daughter's hand in marriage and select some cigars for celebrating. Selecting the cigars was probably my easiest task on my list especially using Cigar International's website. I was able to find mild smokes that would appeal to a wide variety of guests at the wedding. The Don Pepin Garcia El Centurion Robusto were big hits. I appreciate the quick service provided by CI. I was able to wait until the last possible week to order the cigars at great price and know that CI would deliver on time. You guys are great and I will continue to order my stogies through Cigar International. Thanks.
Customer Testimonials
Aged a Toro Grande for a year. It was the best I've had. Smooth, and the flavors became even. Notes of leather, nuts, and a very little spice. Recommended!
One of the best I ever smoked. Too bad I found these at the age of 63!
Not a bad thing to say about this one. Well made with a beautiful dark wrapper. Love how the oils really bubble thru. Sign of a quality cigar in my book. Gonna have to let a few age to see how much better it gets. Featured recently at my cigar club night and nobody was disappointed.
i've had a few of these and throughly enjoyed them. freaking great cigar for the price!
excellent stick!!! after a inch in taste becomes creamy and i pic up slight notes of caramel. Very smooth retro-hale. one of my top 3 favorite sticks. Winner!!!
You can tell this is a Pepin cigar. Nice, dark oily wrapper, solid construction, good draw, and even burn. Pre-light aromas are stout and deceiving, suggesting a very strong cigar. Yet this smokes like a medium to medium-full, opening with a leathery taste an ample amounts of smoke. As you get into the cigar, the spice builds and changes a bit, never gets overbearing, and has a solid finish. The burn, like the flavors and amount of smoke are consistant throughout. I only had this belicoso in my humidor for a few weeks, so I imagine this stick will only get better with age. Even without, this is a solid smoke at a good price.
