My Father El Centurion

Description

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."

Maybe it’s the box press but this to me has been a tough cigar to keep lit. If you set this cigar down for a second plan on a relight. I loved the My Farther Centurion and I thought the Centurion H2KCT would be a step up. Don’t me wrong but the plain Centurion to me seems like nicer smoke. I will some my H2KCT but not my first pick…

I have only had these resting for 10 days, they were delivered in -7 f weather, and after a week and some days I had to light one up(it's 30 degrees and I can leave my window open long enough to smoke a stogie)...I'd they are a solid 8/10 already. My only complaint is the lack of complexity however, the stick is good the whole smoke through, excellent draw, some burn issues,but overall excellent glad I got a box.

Not a bad cigar, but it started to unravel about half way through. The draw was light so I couldn't get full flavor out of it. I did however detect notes of wood.

I really enjoy this cigar. It has never let me down flavor and structure wise. I find subtle changes in flavors throughout the experience. I particularly enjoy the last 20 minutes of the smoke. I wish, My Fathers would make this cigar a little shorter for me. I need a cigar that takes less time to smoke in the winter months because staying outside for over an hour can be freezingly tough.

Yes it's more then a cigar. It all starts with the look, the length, the ring, and the label. That is if we are honest! Once lite those 3 qualities don't disappear but remain a constant reminder while your sense of aroma and taste takeover the experience. This is an experience you don't want to rush. It's one to enjoy for 90 minutes or more, being enhanced with a good cigar buddy. The earthy freshness last from first flame to the final inch. The notes of sweet bourbon and spice begins with first draw. This bold looking stick grows in flavor as it's size demishes and becomes your new best in humidor smoke. Drawing the El Centurion down to the last inch will delight you and have you ordering more. To give up before that time you will miss the bold and most flavorful part of this exquisite cigar!

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.

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.

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.
