Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial TAA Blend

I recently smoked the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial TAA Blend, which I was able to pick up from Smoke Inn, being as they’re one of the only shops that are allowed to sell this special blend. This cigar looks similar to a Pardon Anniversary series with its fuzzy looking, maduro wrapper and perfectly box pressed shape I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It comes neatly wrapped with a blue, silk ribbon on the end and the band looks very sophisticated. I like it.

Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial TAA cigar review

I love cutting a box pressed torpedo-style cigar. Something about it is just right, I almost always get a perfect cut. This cigar was no exception. The draw was easy and produced a generous amount of white smoke with each puff, and a razor sharp burn. No touch ups required.

The smoke on this cigar was creamy and mellow with a long finish that left your mouth feeling clean. It was a very pleasant experience. Milk chocolate with a light hint of pepper made the cigar a nice mild smoke great for an early morning coffee and donut session!

Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial TAA cigar rating



What was most striking about the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial is that it was a similar style to a Padron but with half the body and half the strength, which may sound bad, but was actually okay with me because they are about half the price.

I enjoyed this cigar with a refreshing Collins drink, and afterwards was left with a clean, content feeling, and that is just fine in my book!
