I like my cigars mild, tasty and easy on my palate, say hello to the offering by "My Father Cigars-Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial"...
This tasty bad boy grabbed me right away. And to be honest I had reached into my stash on a sunny March day here in Pittsburgh, Pa. and did not even look at what I had grabbed. I was just happy to see the sun. I put on some Raul Malo and the Mavericks and lite her up.
About eight puffs in I finally read the band. What a delight.

"Jaime (pronounced Hi-may) Garcia is the son of Don Pepin Garcia, and an integral member of the family business. He's worked side-by-side with Pepin for years and has had in hands in a number of projects. But now, he's got his own eponymous brand - blended entirely solo.
Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial utilizes a dark, oily Broadleaf maduro wrapper paired with a rich blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers with tobaccos from some of the Garcia family's farms. It's on the fuller side, but smooth and layered with notes of espresso, pepper, earth, and cedar. A tasty, well-made stick that will make the old man proud. Burn one of these, and you'll experience the artisanal skill of this family history.
Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial received a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: "Even though this dark, near-veinless robusto is solid to the touch, it draws wonderfully, leaving full-bodied notes of pepper, wine oak and coffee bean flavors on the palate."
