Tabacos Baez Monarcas Cigar Review

This is something a bit different than what most of us have come to expect from Jose “Don Pepin” Garcia. At first I didn’t care for it so much, but after I let me sense of taste recover from the IPCPR I gave this cigar another try.

The cigar is beautiful and even though the descriptions don’t mention it I’m guessing this might be a Sun Grown wrapper. The band seems a bit plain up against some of the other Pepin cigars. Who cares though we don’t smoke the bands.

It took me some time to nail down this cigar, a little too much to smoke in the morning and too light to smoke after a heavy meal. The Tabacos Baez starts out with some nuttiness and a wood flavor. Picked up a touch of spice, a bit of cinnamon that left the tongue tingling a bit and just a hint of vanilla. I was picking up another flavor that I had a hard time picking, but after checking a couple descriptions on a couple retailers I figured it out, mushroom. Strange, but very enjoyable.

Verdict: This isn’t a full-bodied in your face cigar like most of the stuff from Don Pepin. A Subtle and complex this is great medium bodied cigar and a good bang for the buck.
