Box label from Don Pepin Garcia cigarsJosé “Pepin” Garcia, chief executive officer of Miami-based El Rey de los Habanos, Inc. — better known as Don Pepín Cigars — will be rolling out some very thick cigars to people who are looking for ring gauges larger than what used to be considered big.

The company’s “Blue Label” brand’s newest size is a Toro Gordo, described as a six-inch long, 56 ring gauge. The stick, which began shipping last week, is a Nicaraguan puro cigar. The Toro Gordo’s suggested retail price is $6.70.

Even larger is the Super Gordo from the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial brand. With a 66 ring gauge that’s so thick it comes with a belicoso tip, the Super Gordo comes in at 5 3/4″ long. This stick is wrapped in Connecticut broadleaf, with its filler and binder coming from Nicaragua.
