A new high end offering from the García family is arriving at retailers.
The Don Pepin Garcia 15th Anniversary has begun showing up on shelves, a cigar released to commemorate a milestone in José “Pepín” García’s storied cigar making career, in this case, marking the anniversary of the opening of his factory in Miami.
The Nicaraguan puro uses tobacco from the García family’s La Estrella and El Pedrero farms in Estelí, including some of the famed pelo d’oro that has appeared in other cigars in the company’s portfolio. The wrapper is a habano rosado oscuro leaf, and the company says that the all of the tobacco used has been aged for upwards of three years.
It is being released in two sizes, a 5 3/4 x 50 robusto priced at $20, and a 6 1/2 x 52 toro priced at $24. Each size is offered in 14-count boxes, with 2,000 boxes of each size produced at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí.
E-mails sent to My Father Cigars seeking additional details were not returned.
