Jaime Garcia is fast becoming an extremely popular blender and cigar manufacturer in his own right.  His name is becoming just as synonymous with cigars as his father, Don Pepin.  Already the reception to the Jaime Garcia Limited Edition 2011 (my first review!!!) was hugely popular and a great success. 

This cigar is Jaime’s core line that has more than half a dozen different sizes. 

This cigar has a gorgeous dark veiny wrapper.  Very smooth to the touch, it is firm not spongy.  This is visually a perfect cigar. 

The draw on this cigar is amazing and the burn even and perfect.  There is a strong punch when first light.  A nice spice and tobacco notes hit you from the first puff.  The cigar mellows out throughout the smoke but then fires up again for a strong finish. 

I would not have this as the first cigar of the day; this would be perfect after a meal.  This cigar is flavorful, smooth, and robust.  Just a fantastic cigar!!!
