Ashton and Don Pepin Garcia have collaborated on a number of outstanding cigars, such as La Aroma de Cuba and San Cristobal. While those are among our favorites, they're not exactly everyday cigars for most of us. Here's where Benchmade comes in.
These Nicaraguan-wrapped gems are made in the Cuban-sandwich style, using long and short leaves, which are trimmings from some of their best tobaccos. They're hand rolled and finished with a pigtail cap. Medium to full in body, Benchmade delivers the sweet and spicy experience you've come to expect from Pepin, but at a price that's low enough for you to slip a couple into your golf bag for your next outing. Whoever came up with the phrase "bang for the buck" was probably enjoying a Benchmade when they came up with it.
