Bdawg says:  A chocolate brown oily wrapper. The draw is easy, but the ash split early like an exploding cigar. The flavor was chocolatey with a white pepper finish.  The burn was medium slow and easy.

Jaime Garcia cigars are produced by My Father cigars.

Bdawg says: I first rated this cigar on 8/13/12.  And am willing to concede the possibility that I got a bad cigar.  I resmoked this cigar on 11/8/12 and had a totally different experience.  Here is that rating...

A dark brown, toothy, oily, rustic wrapper. The draw is easy. The ash is long tight and gray. The flavor is dark, burnt espresso beans, earthy, peppery, but not harsh, a hint of sweetness on the finish. The burn slow and even.  3 Hearts.
