My Father Cigars

My Father Cigars are patiently blended by legendary cigar-maker, Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia in Estelí, Nicaragua from the finest, handcrafted premium tobaccos. The Garcia family excels at growing, aging and fermenting tobaccos in tremendously inventive ways to create a portfolio of My Father brands with depth, diversity and consistency. The My Father Cigars factory produces cigars that are frequently very highly rated, such as Flor de las Antillas and My Father Le Bijou 1922, both of which won Cigar Aficionado’s ‘#1 Cigar of the Year’ title following their respective debuts.

MY FATHER BRAND HISTORY

If you’re at all acquainted with premium cigars these days, it’s hard to miss My Father Cigars, be it on a store shelf, in an online search, or in any conversation you could have about the best cigars. The brand has come a long way… and at light speed, you could say. You might classify My Father as an overnight success that was decades in the making. If you’re aware of the brand’s patriarch, Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia, the company’s immense strides in a short time may come as less of a surprise. Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia, or simply, ‘Pepin,’ as he is often called, began rolling cigars at the age of 11 in Cuba in his hometown of Baez in the country’s Villa Clara province. Pepin learned to roll cigars under the tutelage of his uncle who ran a small factory. Eventually, Pepin began rolling cigars at the Felix Rodriquez factory where he crafted renowned Cuban brands such as Montecristo, Cohiba, and Romeo y Julieta, among others.

To this day, Pepin adheres to the rolling standards he learned in his youth. He also expresses a sincere conviction that the cigars rolled in Baez were superior to those made in Havana, due to higher construction standards. Many of the rollers Pepin’s initial Miami-based cigar factory hailed from Baez. Outside of a brief 3-year stint for state-required military service in Cuba, Pepin’s entire life has been consumed by cigars. Having personally trained some 200 rollers in Cuba over the course of his decades there, Pepin steadfastly imparted his love of tobacco to his entire family, especially his son, Jaime Garcia, who runs the Garcia’s growing and rolling operations, and his daughter, Janny Garcia, who manages the company’s salesforce.

The Garcias’ emergence in the premium U.S. cigar market grew from humble roots. In 2002, Pepin and Jaime immigrated to the States, joining Janny who had come just a few years prior. A small factory in Miami was the birthplace of Pepin’s first commercially successful release in the U.S., Tatuaje, rolled for boutique brand owner Pete Johnson. Pepin’s notable Cuban influence bears distinct hallmarks in the Nicaraguan smokes he makes today. Often medium to full-bodied and spicy, Pepin’s blends rely on an array of select Cuban-seed tobaccos, much of which is now grown on the family’s Nicaraguan estates, in addition to carefully chosen wrapper varietals from Connecticut, Ecuador, and San Andrés. Tatuaje debuted in 2003 and was initially made in small batches distributed in a handful of premium smokeshops around the country. High ratings and a steady buzz quickly earned the brand and the Garcias much attention. Pepin’s namesake brand, Don Pepin Garcia, hit the market in the same year, also earning high marks and praise from consumers as well as industry insiders.

By 2005, the family had been contracted to blend and manufacture the San Cristobal brand, a new project slated to debut under the iconic Ashton portfolio. Management at Ashton was so impressed with the Garcia family’s blending prowess, the company would go on to develop and expand an entire collection of premium Nicaraguan cigars with the Garcias, including their prized Cuban-legacy brand, La Aroma de Cuba.

As demand for cigars made by Pepin increased at a frantic pace, each milestone in his company’s growth paved the way for the family’s signature My Father brand to ascend. The original My Father blend debuted in 2008. Jaime developed the blend in secret from an Ecuador Habano leaf wrapped over a Nicaraguan core of Garcia-grown tobaccos. He had intended to name the brand “My Father” all along as a tribute to Pepin. It’s meaty profile of leather, coffee beans and spice impressed the elder Garcia despite his premature discovery of the project. The cigar scored a 94-point rating in Cigar Aficionado and was awarded the overall ‘#3 Cigar of the Year’ ranking in 2009. The banner year also witnessed the family’s sprawling new My Father Cigars S.A. factory open in Estelí, Nicaragua where the bulk of the company’s production would be absorbed and new projects could flourish. The modern facility was deliberately designed with plenty of space to grow, add rollers, and most importantly, for the Garcias to control their process in a vertically integrated fashion. They now enjoy the resources to cultivate, harvest, ferment, roll and package their own cigars from seed to box. Quality control is carefully monitored and the family’s pride is entirely evident in every cigar they make. For Pepin, it has been a dream come true.

MY FATHER BRAND OVERVIEW

Today, the My Father Cigars portfolio includes a number popular brands, perhaps none more prominent than My Father Le Bijou 1922 and Flor de las Antillas. What sets each of these premium blends apart, aside from being great cigars, is the fact that they were both named the ‘#1 Cigar of the Year’ by Cigar Aficionado in a relatively short span. Flor de las Antillas achieved the distinction first in 2012 with a 96-point score courtesy of an all-Nicaraguan, medium to full-bodied Toro that delivers notes of nutmeg, spices and sweetened cedar in a soft box-pressed shape. My Father Le Bijou 1922 followed just a few years later, picking up the top spot in 2015 with 97 points for the brand’s striking Box-Pressed Torpedo shape in a full-throttled recipe of all-Nicaraguan tobaccos dressed in Cuban-seed Oscuro wrapper leaf, also grown in Nicaragua. Pepin blended the cigar as a tribute to his own father, Jose Garcia, who was born in 1922. The potent amalgam resonates with hearty notes of black pepper, earth, leather and a bit of dark chocolate. Additionally, Flor de las Antillas reflects a superb value, priced in the vicinity of $7-9.

Although the father and son cigar-making team has excelled at developing a number of rare, small-batch smokes such as the My Father Limited Edition PepinMania Toro, their knack for crafting award-winning cigars at a large scale has granted them access to wide consumer audience. Early fans became fascinated with the brand by smoking Don Pepin Garcia Original (often called ‘DPG’ or ‘Blue Label’) and Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial. Each of these full-bodied cigars displays a unique signature; Don Pepin Garcia with its spicy Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper leaf and Jaime Garcia Reserva with a sweet and succulent Connecticut Broadleaf.

The Garcias have been afforded much opportunity to experiment and indulge their creativity with boutique releases like El Centurion and El Centurion H-2K-CT, the latter of which is composed from a rare Cuban-seed wrapper varietal grown in Connecticut. Notes of nuts, honey and creamy spices characterize a more approachable profile. Ornate artwork on the boxes and bands make La Antiquedad an eye-catching cigar with its rich, Ecuador Habano wrapper over a full-bodied combination of Nicaraguan long-fillers in another special boutique release.

Pepin and Jaime aren’t afraid to evolve, either. They’ve blended enhanced editions for some of their bestselling blends, such as My Father Connecticut, which reimagines the original My Father in a silky, Ecuador Connecticut wrapper leaf. The 92-rated Flor de las Antillas Maduro was also released, featuring a toothy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over the award-winning original blend. The Maduro emphasizes a sweeter profile and adds a new dimension to the cigar. Other, more recent releases continue to draw praise and curiosity from a number of aficionados. My Father The Judge is a 93-rated, hearty, box-pressed smoke cloaked in an Ecuador Sumatra leaf. My Father La Opulencia showcases the Garcias’ talent for balancing their homegrown Nicaraguan tobaccos beneath a spicy Oscuro wrapper from San Andrés.

If you haven’t sampled a My Father cigar as of today, you’re missing out. The brand’s multidimensional portfolio expresses a tremendous depth of flavor and richness. An immense Cuban tradition is nurtured in a number of perfectly handcrafted, premium Nicaraguan cigars that beam with remarkable density and aroma. Peruse the many My Father cigar reviews available and get familiar with what other cigar lovers are saying. They may also share your preferences flavor and strength and can identify a great cigar to start with. It’s a safe bet your cigar collection will grow in satisfaction and prestige when you add My Father to your immediate cigar-buying agenda.
