In 2007, Jose “Pepin” Garcia released his first limited edition cigars with El Centurion. Only 2,550 boxes were produced. The cigar featured a rare corojo wrapper and a price tag of about $14.
In 2013, the Garcia family brought back the limited edition cigar. El Centurion was launched, this time in regular production. Produced at My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, El Centurion was launched to celebrate the family’s tenth anniversary in cigar-making.
At the 2015 IPCPR, the Garcia’s added new sizes to the El Centurion line-up. You can now buy the cigars in Toro and Corona.
The El Centurion regular line differs slightly from the limited edition line. The newer cigars feature a Criollo ’98 wrapper and four different types of aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. One of these tobaccos is the unique Sancti Spiritus leaf, an addition that transforms the cigar into a spicy yet sweet cigar.
A medium to full-bodied cigar, the El Centurion is available in boxes of 20 and cheaper than the limited-edition cigar. You can buy them in Robusto, Belicoso, Toro Grande, and two new sizes in Corona Box Pressed and Toro Box Pressed. Get them for the best online prices from Cuenca Cigars.
