My Father Cigars Fonseca
In short: it’s not easy to do what Don Pepin does even once, and he does it year after year. We’re in awe of men like this and their entire organizational approach.
Fonseca is not an entirely new brand. Instead, it’s a relaunch of an ancient name that was born in Cuba, lived in the Dominican Republic, and made its way to its current home in Estelí, Nicaragua in the capable hands of the Garcias.
This particular blend features all Nicaraguan tobacco, including a delicious shade-grown Corojo ’99 Rosado wrapper. For those who have been smoking My Father blends, you’ll find that particular type of tobacco quite familiar, as it has graced a number of world-class cigars. It’s got an incredibly satisfying flavor profile that includes toasty gingerbread and a kick of red pepper that’s a reliable My Father note to strike. Fonseca by My Father cigars are really tasty and definitely deserving of the 93-rating and the honor of yet another Cigar Aficionado Top 25 appearance for the Garcias.
