My Father 5 Cigar Sampler Description
Long before the Cigar of the Year wins for Don Pepin Garcia and his team (for the Le Bijou 1922 and La Flor de Las Antillas blends), there was simply a blend called “My Father.” That’s what you’ll find in the My Father 5 Cigar Sampler, in five different delicious sizes.
This was the blend that launched the brand officially. And as the story goes, it was Don Pepin’s son, Jaime, who created it in Nicaragua, back when the family was still focused on their cigar-making facility in Miami.
The blend was a hit, to say the least.
While the cigar world was learning who José Garcia was through his first hit blends for Tatuaje, the follow-ups under the Garcia’s own imprint would knock their ashtrays right off the table. Powered by beautiful, high-quality Nicaraguan long-fillers and a choice Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper, the flavors were unmistakable: balanced pepper, warm nuttiness, and hints of leather and coffee – a total classic, right from the get-go!
The My Father 5 Cigar Sampler includes one each of the following sizes of the core original My Father blend:
No. 1 Robusto (5.25 x 54) – Cigar Aficionado’s 94-rated #3 cigar of 2009
No. 2 Belicoso (5.2 x 54) – the 92-rated #16 cigar of 2010
Cedro Deluxe Eminentes (corona extra, 5.6 x 46)
No. 3 Crema (toro, 6 x 49) – the 92-rated #17 cigar of 2014
No. 5 Toro (fatter toro, 6 x 56)
You’ll know it right away when you’re smoking a My Father, and this blend is why. That perfect strength of pepper (not too much, not too little), that signature nuttiness, the balancing notes of leather, wood, and coffee. It’s just a fantastic cigar and one that got many people hooked for good on My Father cigars.
My Father cigars are habit-forming in the best possible way. We’re always grateful that we get to pack our humidors with Don Pepin’s cigars. He’s absolutely one of the legends of blending.
Please enjoy the My Father 5 Cigar Sampler at your leisure.
