My Father Cigars
From the moment you open the box, you’ll understand the opulence that is La Opulencia. It is simply a breathtaking cigar. With two different Nicaraguan binders (one Criollo, and one Corojo), and various Cuban-seed fillers grown on the Garcia family farms, the Opulencia is medium to medium-full bodied smoke. It is flavorful, complex and well-balanced. Oily, smooth, and sweet, the Opulencia harkens to a slower more relaxed bygone time. Opulent? Yes. A good value? Surprisingly, yes. Worthy of your time? Absolutely!
Delicious from the first puff, the Flor de las Antillas line of cigars produced by the famed Garcia family has rightfully earned its accolades. True to the Garcia family's Cuban heritage, this cigar's name means "Flower of the Antilles'. (Cuba is the largest island of the Greater Antilles islands, and therefore, the 'flower'.) You'll enjoy the bouquet of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder, which result in a balanced and smooth smoking experience. The Sun Grown wrapper is beautifully box pressed and smooth to the touch. This flower bouquet of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder, open up beautifully, which result in a balanced and smooth smoking experience.
The Flor de las Antillas debuted in 2012 and was named Cigar of the Year and scored an impressive 96 points. But many people agreed a strong Maduro version was needed for those who appreciate a more full-bodied experience. So not only did My Father Cigars pull off the original with critical acclaim, but they did it again with the Maduro version. From the word go, you'll notice the sharp box-press highlights the natural oils of the Ecuadorian Habano Sun Grown Oscuro wrapper, the perfectly rolled Nicaraguan binder, and the aromas of cedar, spice, and earth. Enjoy the “Antilles Flower” Maduro today!
French for “the Jewel” this smoke is a true gem. Winner of the #1 Cigar of the Year in 2015, the Bijou is a rich, full-bodied treat. Don “Pepin” Garcia wanted to honor his father Jose Garcia with this cigar, honoring his father’s birth year in the name. Critically acclaimed for both its power and its finesse, it has all the right flavorful combinations. With uncanny harmony, the Garcia family perfectly balances the sweet chocolate raisin notes with a savory leather finish. A true jewel in their cigar-making crown--Le Bijou 1922.
La Antiguedad means ‘The Antiquity’. Everything from the traditional blend of Cuban-seed tobaccos to the artwork on the box is nod to the old Cuban ways of cigar-making. Once a Cuban brand, La Antiguedad is revamped and revitalized in a fresh light, that pays homage to the cigar-Motherland. The wrapper is a slightly reddish-hued Ecuadorian Rosado Oscuro draped around a double Nicaraguan binder (one Corojo and the other Criollo). The filler is a collection of premium tobaccos from three tobacco growing regions in Nicaragua. Aged for a minimum of three years, these tobaccos meld together into a smooth medium to full-bodied profile with notes of coffee, cocoa, leather and a touch of pepper. Enjoy this Cubanesque smoke today.
You can never go wrong with a cigar with the acclaimed name of Don Pepin behind it. And the Vegas Cubanas, are no exception to that rule. This smoke is a great option for those who enjoy a blend with a little less power behind them. The pre-light aroma is of sweet cedar and earthy spice. It has a loose draw, and a quick and even burn. Consistent with Pepin's cigars, you'll enjoy his signature spice in the initial blast, but it eventually mellows out. It's a beauty to behold and smoke. A joy for the novice or season cigar smoker. Let your heart be won over again, by this masterpiece from a master blender, Don Pepin.
We recommend you check out the big and bold #7 Cigar of the Year 2017, My Father the Judge. It's a fuller bodied version of the original My Father blend (which says a lot!). Nicaraguan filler and Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, notes of chocolate, earth, ginger snap, almond and a red pepper flavor that really gives it a bold kick. Two binder leaves which is a Garcia signature element and which also lends to the cigar’s complexity. They grow great tobacco and they make great cigars. We think you’ll love it, but you be ‘The Judge.’

Originally a limited edition cigar, the El Centurion is now more readily available to the masses, and we’re so glad that it is. True to its origins, the El Centurion uses well-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos but there is a little secret nestled into those tobaccos, and it is the flavor bomb that is the unique Sancti Spiritus leaf. A spicy-sweet leaf whose flavor morphs in flavors of pepper and leather. Medium to full in body the El Centurion is delicious right out of the box, but if you can age it for a few more months, you’ll only appreciate the flavor more.
Using 100% Cuban seed tobacco, My Father cultivated this signature blend in the Connecticut River Valley. Building on the hallmark powerhouse of flavor and balance that this line is known for, this cigar does not disappoint. The El Centurion H-2K-CT is named after the proprietary Connecticut wrapper starts off with impressive blooms of smoke and an equally impressive draw. The quality unfolds from there with mouthwatering notes of spicy pepper and hints of leather. The flavor profile of this stick transitions beautifully throughout with a noticeable spice in the beginning which builds with expert precision into delicious finish with touches of cream, nougat, coffee and vanilla.
A departure from his norm, Jose “Pepin” Garcia offers a new and mellower smoke. But by mellow, we by no means infer that it’s lacking in flavor, rather, this medium-bodied beauty uses carefully selected Nicaraguan Corojo 99 binder and Nicaraguan, Habano and Criollo long fillers to present us with a slightly sweet earthy smoke. You’ll detect notes of chocolate and spice with this masterpiece of Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper. Truly a complex smoke, with a well-deserved 90-rating. Connect with the Connecticut. A great choice for when the mood strikes and you want a cold easy draw smoke, we heartily recommend lighting up the Connecticut from My Father.

The strongest smoke to date in the Garcia family repertoire. Cigar master Don Pepin Garcia has created an homage to the long-vanished Cuban cigars available before the trade embargo was signed in the early 1960s. Both ‘Cuban’ and ‘Classic’ aptly describe this smoke. It builds in strength as it progresses with spice, cedar and hints of vanilla. While many enthusiasts talk about Cuban-esque cigars, none come as close to the real thing as those produced by Cuban-born Don Pepin himself.
Jaime Garcia has big shoes to fill. His dad, Don Pepin is a living legend in the cigar world, and the family name is synonymous with quality craftsmanship and world-renowned cigar making. Even the name of the company, My Father Cigars, must've been an intimidating thing to live up to, but Jaime Garcia has done it with this cigar. Jaime Garcia's Reserva Especial holds its own as a premier smoking experience. It features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler and two leaves of Pelo d'Oro (a prized but rare tobacco grown from Cuban seed). This full-bodied, full-flavored blend has been critically acclaimed, and the mere 3,000 boxes released this year, means it is truly limited and truly special.
