TOBACCONIST TO THE TRIAD SINCE 1998

Exclusive To The Pipe And Pint

El Rey de Los Habanos by Don "Pepin" Garcia

 The Pipe  and Pint is  proud to announce the return of Don Pepin Garcia’s El Rey de los Habanos. The El Rey de los Habanos has been re-blended, and Pipe and Pint  is now the exclusive home and distributor of this iconic line. Originally  released in 2005, El Rey de los Habanos was the first national release  by Don Pepin Garcia after arriving in the United States. It is named for  the famed factory located on Calle Ocho in Little Havana, Miami  Florida, where Pepin first started manufacturing cigars for the Garcia  and Tatuaje portfolios. The new El Rey de los Habanos features an  Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler that come  exclusively from the Garcia’s own family farms, mostly located in  Esteli. All of leaf being used for this cigar goes through a special  process of fermentation, sorting, and quality control in the factory to  yield the unique flavors and aromas that were sought out for this blend. While  smoking the newly re-blended El Rey de los Habanos in Miami, Pepin was quoted as saying, "This cigar is my answer to the all of the people who say I can't blend a milder cigar  with full flavor.”

La Colonia Miami

 La Colonia Miami line is a collaboration between La Colonia  Cigars and the famed Casa Fernandez/Tabacalera Tropicale factory in  Miami, Florida. A reprise of an old Cuban brand  from the 19th century, with the “Flor de Aganorsa” paying homage to  Eduardo Fernadez’ Aganorsa fincas. La Colonia Miami is a throwback to the Cuban cigars of yesteryear, emphasizing flavor and  aroma with strength as a by-product, leveraging beautiful Jalapa sweetness over heavy Esteli spice, showcasing the nuances of what  Nicaraguan Aganorsa tobacco is known for.

La Colonia Miami is a Nicaraguan puro, comprised of 5 to 7 year aged  leaf of the highest grade from the famed farms of Aganorsa. Blended with the Cuban Master, Arsenio Ramos, and Casa  Fernandez President, Paul Palmer-Fernandez and rolled by Casa Fernandez/Tabacalera Tropicale’s highest level torcedores.
