Don Pepin Garcia Series JJ Maduro

I’m sure most, if not all of you, are familiar with Jerry from Stogie Review. He lost his son JJ, his “little robusto,” a couple of years ago to SIDS, and in his memory Jerry promotes “Smoke a JJ for JJ Day,” in its second year. So today I’m reviewing the Series JJ Maduro Sublime by Don Pepin Garcia, a beautiful Nicaraguan puro that also comes in a natural version.

In the video I talk about the cigar, how I got to find out about Jerry and Stogie Review, his great video from his first “Smoke a JJ for JJ” day, what cigars mean to me, our July contest, our newest member, and our newest sponsors.

AMEN CHARLIE!!!! Jerry is no doubt a great guy and I respect the hell out of him. I think of him as the Godfather of Cigar Review. He too got me into this whole Cigar Blog gig. I joined the SRFF right around the time he lost little JJ. I didn’t even know the guy and my heart bled for him. I now have a son of my own and could not imagine what he went through. Jerry if you are reading this know that everytime I light up a JJ that I think about you and your son and in some ways it brings me even closer to mine knowing that life is so fragile and unpredictable. God bless…

Excellent job Charlie.

Adam-Very well said. I feel the same way about my kids. I will be smoking a JJ today to honor Jerry and his family.

Great review! I never smoked a JJ yet, but I have 2 sitting in my humi and at least 1 is earmarked for today! I have the natural wrapper in the belicosa size.


Great Video! I will be smoking my JJ 4 JJ later today.

For JJ and Jerry, I have one daughter who is now an adult ( I am a bit older than Jerry) and I could never imagine what they both went through ( Jerry and his lovely wife) when this did occur. Jerry is someone who seems to be a genuine nice guy and a gentlemen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now while we smoke and in Sept. when your wife is due.

Awesome review Charlie. It’s nice to see a video review with more than just cigar feedback. To hear updates, personal stories, contests, and site news makes them all the more interesting.
