As one of the most premier cigar makers of the day, Don Pepin credits his Series JJ line as the finest of all of his blends. It is spicy and robust with a rich full body.
Created by Pepin and his son Jaime, this fine handmade employs a wonderful blend of Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo long-leaf tobaccos inside a flavorful Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper or thick Broadleaf Maduro. The result is a full-bodied smoke layered with deep flavors. The aroma is earthy and spicy, complementing the rich, leathery flavors perfectly.
The Don Pepin Series JJ is the top shelf blend made at Pepin’s El Rey de Los Habanos factory in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami. Each Series JJ is rolled using only the top tobacco available at the factory. The blend is very full bodied and full flavored with a spicy aroma that is well balanced with notes of leather on the palate and a long finish. The Miami based factory that makes these cigars is very small, making their availability at times extremely limited. Don’t miss you chance to pick up a box while they are in stock.
