A new limited edition exclusive from My Father Cigars is on the shelves at the various Casa de Montecristo locations around the country.

The cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper, a double binder with leaves from Nicaragua’s Estelí and Jalapa regions, and a Nicaraguan filler that draws on three varietals. Specifically, the filler contains tobacco from Estelí and the Finca el Predero farm, from Jalapa and the Finca La Bonita farm, and from the Finca Las Quebradas farm in Namanji, a growing region located approximately 20 miles east of Estelí.

The line is being offered in three sizes:

  • My Father Casa de Montecristo Exclusive Churchill (7 x 54) — $13.80 (Box of 20, $276)
  • My Father Casa de Montecristo Exclusive Toro Gordo (6 1/4 x 52) — $13.40 (Box of 20, $268)
  • My Father Casa de Montecristo Exclusive Toro (6 x 50) — $12.90 (Box of 20, $258)

The total production across the three sizes is 30,000 cigars, produced in late 2019 at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí. The retailer released the cigars on May 14.

Casa de Montecristo is the brick-and-mortar retail chain of Tabacalera USA. There are 28 Casa de Montecristo locations across 11 states and the District of Columbia, some of which are owned by Tabacalera USA while others are franchise locations.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
