El Centurion has just been re-released from the Don Pepin/ My Father camp. What started off as My Father Cigars’ first Limited Production cigar, El Centurion has made it’s way into regular production. Today I will be reviewing this Nicaraguan Puro in the Belicoso format.
The El Centurion by My Father features a dark, near black, wrapper. First impressions have me pegging this cigar as raw: The flavor is very much in your face without being very harsh. There is a prominent bitterness to it, almost like an espresso.
The El Centurion Belicoso is Medium to full in body, with hints of pepper, black coffee, and earth. It burns a little crooked, possibly because of it’s loose draw.
Overall, this cigar is nice if you like earthy and bold cigars, however, it is not for the faint of heart. The flavor can be overwhelming at times, so I would recommend eating a meal beforehand.
