Don Pepin Garcia ‘Blue’ Generosos Cigar Review

This 6×50 milk chocolate stick offered a slightly toothy but satiny wrapper, with a firm and slightly bumpy construction. Burn was almost razor sharp and the draw was absolutely perfect. Total burn time to the nub was 1:15 where it got hot for me. The second half especially produced great amounts of thick rich smoke, giving flavors of coffee, leather, sweetness on the first half, and a bit of a pepper zing on the short clean finish. A touch of cocoa came through at the 1/2 way point, and the transitions were very nice throughout. Thank you to Shuckins for trading with me for this stick! Photography by BG Pictures.

    Thats sounds like a stick I need to get! But afterall it is a Pepin! Great review!

  • It was delish! Thanks for watching!

  • Great review Bryan, I haven’t had one of these in a long time and don’t recall much about it – sounds like one that is worth a revisit.

    It’s nice to know that they let you smoke cigars on survivor island 🙂 I have not ever had anything from DPG, so maybe this should be my first?

  • Eron

    I have a few of the robustos of these in my humidor. I loved ’em. They reminded me a lot of the RP Vintage 1990.

  • I had a DPG blue today, and I don’t know why I’m not smoking more of these. Just a solid cigar with a great taste.

  • Timmer

    I have these and the Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic 1979 Black Edition in my humidor and I must say that these are delicious smokes. Great burn and draw throughout, filled with flavors of cocoa and kind of a nutmeg spice in the middle and end. These are my favorites and great for the price. Like most Pepin Garcia’s, there is not a lot of sweetness that comes through, but what there is works very well.
    Thanks for the review.

    Just found a pretty good deal for these on cigarmonster. Grabbed 5 sticks for $25. Know these are one of your faves so I figured I’d give you a heads up. Cheers!

    One of my favorite manufacturers, always pleased with the quality and flavors I get from Don Pepin. And he has a great variety

    I bought a box of these for my sons birthday. Great smoke. The boys enjoyed it.

    Man, this was a great stick. It was a real pleasure to smoke when I had it, thanks to your review. You hit all the key points that I noticed when I smoke it an really enjoyed the flavors because of it. A solid 9 for me, one I should get again someday. Thanks again for including it in your premium sampler!

    I really like this stick, great review! I’ve got to say everything that I’ve had that Don Pepin has been involved in has been great (Padilla Miami, Don Pepin Blue, 5 Vegas Miami, ect). I liked this one so much I got one of the blacks not to long ago and I’ve been letting it sit in my humidor, Bryan would you ever do a review on one of the Pepin Black labels?

  • JJO

    Even though DPG himself doesn’t believe in aging cigars, this one definitely gets better and better with age.

  • Corey

    This is a classic, one of the first cigars made by pepin, thoroughly love this cigar

  • carvajal_pablo
