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.”
