The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2008

Cabaiguan Guapo

13

Pete Johnson’s Cabaiguan line was first rated in 2006. It did well, but not great, scoring in the upper 80s. The cigars were quite different from Johnson’s acclaimed Tatuaje line, using light-hued Connecticut-seed wrappers instead of the dark Nicaraguan wrappers of the Tatuajes. Then he added a fat cigar called the Guapo, made with a darker wrapper and blended somewhat stronger, and the scores rose. The Guapo is an intriguing smoke from its appearance alone—the ultra fat smoke has a pigtail tip, something typically reserved for slim cigars. Made by Pepin Garcia (originally in Miami, now in Nicaragua), the cigars have meaty, leathery flavors complemented by coffee and chocolate notes.
