|Cigar Coop with "The Master", Don Pepin Garcia|
Back 2009, Outland Cigars in Charlotte Pepin at the store for what was Outland's biggest event ever. Unfortunately, my "other job" had me out of town and I was unable to meet the great Don Pepin. However, the Outlanders in attendance had nothing but high praise for this master blender. This time I had to alter my travel schedule to get to see Pepin this week.
Pepin was accompanied by his sales manager, Jose Ortega as well as his master roller, Rene Dominguez. The event featured a large selection of great deals of Pepin's "My Father" line including: the core My Father, My Father Le Bijou, the coffin-cased My Father Limited Edition 2010 (personally rolled by Pepin and his son Jaime Garcia), the new Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial, and the new La Reloba line. Rene was also providing hand-rolled masterpieces as well.
