Jaime 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, you’ll want to experience the artisanal skill of this family history.

Overall decent cigar with notes of spice..espresso..earth..cedar and leather. Three stars only because the flavor profile pretty much stayed the same from start to finish.

I really enjoyed this cigar! Rich chocolate note backed up with with a dark roast coffee. Retrohale brought out much more. Even graham crackers! (as noted in Tim’s review)
I found this one to be a very smooth cigar with thick flavorful smoke and very consistent from start to finish.
I don’t post ratings very often as I haven’t been in the cigar world very long, but this one made its way to a 93 for me. Appearance, construction, burndown, ash, flavor, strength….this one just had everything I was looking for!!

Today, I’m smoking it up with my favorite cigar maker, “My Father”, and today it’s the Jamie Garcia Reserva especial toro, and here’s what I’m tasting. After a cut and a light, I got a peppery retro hale, chocolate immediately came forward. The retro instantly became smooth and almost creamy. No pepper or spice to mention. A light coffee mixed in with a good smoke output. There’s also a flavor in the retro that’s interesting, its like a peanut butter cracker. There’s also a dark floral note, which I hope isn’t a Bethune manipulation. Coming into the second third this cigar has added a sweetness and is getting better by the puff. The chocolate definitely stands out. The retro is also full of chocolate now. This has one of the smoothest retros I’ve ever found. I can see this cigar being a fan favorite. I find myself smoking it too fast because it’s just so good. I want to retro every puff because the flavors just amplify. The flavor profile is consistent here at the end of the second third. I know I’m ordering more of these. Here in the final third, it’s still giving up that milk chocolate but it has added a slightly bitter dark tobacco flavor. Overall this cigar was off the hook with that chocolate, very enjoyable. My experience on this was like having a desert instead of smoking a cigar. Definitely box worthy. I smoked this down to a half an inch, and just couldn’t get enough of it. I can’t wait to get another one. My score on this came out to a 95.

A stellar smoke from start to finish. Don’t let the dark wrapper fool you, it isn’t as kick you in the teeth as you may think. It pairs great with a morning coffee.

Medium stick that got full in the final third. Nice oily wrapper. Smooth draw with a slow burn. Notes of espresso and cedar with a lingering spice. Very good all around.

Smooth, dark chocolate wrapper, medium body transitions to full, spice on light up mellows but lingers. Woody, espresso, subtle bitter cocoa. Nice draw however burn required a few touch ups.
