Cigars: Every Humidor Should Have These 4 My Father Cigars

My Father Le Bijou 1922

myfather1My Father 1922 Le Bijou cigars are handmade in Nicaragua. While the original My Father was made secretly by Don Pepin’s son Jaime, Le Bijou is Don Pepin’s homage to his own father, born in 1922. French for “the jewel,” Le Bijou lives up to its billing! Notoriously difficult to grow, Pelo de Oro wrapper leaves (dubbed Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro) cloak a well-aged, full-bodied blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos. A sweet, creamy start gives way to some spice and bold tobacco flavor. A must-try!

 

Jaime Garcia Reserva

myfather1aJaime Garcia Reserva Especial cigars offer indisputable evidence that their namesake has come into his own. Shimmering Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers adorn a hearty blend of Nicaraguan longfillers and binders. The cigar’s opening spice notes are quickly overtaken by a deep, earthy flavor profile. Cocoa and Maduro sweetness interplay with the spice for an interesting, intensely full flavor. A splendid Maduro-wrapped cigar, especially for the asking price. VERY highly recommended! This cigar was recommended by my FB friend “Bob Cigar“.  In a word: Extraordinary!

 

Flor De Las Antillas

myfather1bFlor de las Antillas cigars are made by My Father Cigars as a tribute to Cuba, where the Garcia’s awe-inspiring cigar-making heritage began. Presented in all BOX-PRESSED sizes, everything from the select Nicaraguan Cuban-seed tobaccos, to the exquisite Nicaraguan sun-grown wrapper leaf, to the opulent packaging, these medium-bodied puros are ultra smooth, offering a creamy combo of perfectly-balanced flavors. Send yourself some “flowers” by ordering these highly-rated cigars now.

 

La Duena

myfather1cJust look at that silhouette simple, yet refined. The Pepin family was never one to make elaborate cigar bands or boxes. Instead, they let their cigars do all the talking for them. They’re like the quiet cowboy at a saloon. He doesn’t make much noise, but when Jesse James comes rolling into town, you know damn well he’s getting the bounty attached to taking down the infamous outlaw. Everyone knows him by name, yet nobody can tell you what he looks like.

 

Company History

It all began from a very humble beginning when Jose Pepin Garcia and his family established a very small cigar factory in Little Havana in 2003. Jose Pepin Garcia could not have imagined at that moment that his love and passion for cigars would help him to build one of the most recognized companies in the cigar industry. His companies have become synonymous with highly rated and well-distinguished brands.

It all starts in 1950 when Jose Pepin Garcia is born in Cuba. Just a few years later, barely 11 years old he sits for the first time at a rolling table to roll his first cigar. Inspired by the spirit and tradition of a family who grew alongside with tobacco leaves is where Jose Pepin Garcia was born and developed.

“It is about a lifelong passion! It is not just about a cigar, it is a dream – the Garcia’s dream!”
says, Jose Pepin Garcia.

On August 29, 2009 one of the most memorable moments in the Garcia’s life was the opening of My Father Cigars in Nicaragua, also known as the Garcia Family Industrial Park. A seven-acre complex with an installed production process, which enables the tobacco to be harvested, packaged and shipped to our retailers.

Don Pepin Garcia and his son Jaime Garcia have developed countless blends for My Father Cigars and for several of the most prestigious companies in the market. Janny Garcia, Pepin’s daughter is in charge of the My Father Cigars headquarters. With great team leadership comes a great team accomplishment, the largest international recognition was granted by the cigar industry to Flor de Las Antillas for “Best Cigar of the Year for 2012” .

The Garcia Family continues to follow the tradition they lived and learned in Cuba and proudly own two factories, the headquarters in Doral, which is a boutique factory with a team of twelve expert cigar rollers trained by Don Pepin himself. The other is the Garcia Family Industrial Park in Estelí, Nicaragua with more than three hundred cigar rollers. Both factories are responsible for the twelve company owned brands that exist in the marketplace today. The Garcia Family blends are uncompromisingly robust and aromatic, recognized for their distinct combination of strength, richness and spicy aroma along with a heavy finish. The construction is a very meticulous handcrafted cigar with a beautiful wrapper and a traditional triple-cap finish.

Pepin’s traditions, heart and soul go into every cigar they make. The strict execution of time-tested Cuban cigar making methods ensure that every cigar made, provides the best possible smoking experience.
