My Father Cigars’ latest creation begins its journey to retailers today, as the company is sending out the first shipments of La Opulencia.

The new cigar is an extension to the company’s core My Father line, sharing the same primary band but adding a new secondary band. The cigar uses a Mexican rosado oscuro wrapper with a dual Nicaraguan binder featuring criollo and corojo leaves, while the filler comes from the García’s farms in Nicaragua.

It is being offered in six sizes, all of which are box-pressed and made at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua:

  • My Father La Opulencia Petite (4 1/2 x 48) — $7.10 (Boxes of 20, $142)
  • My Father La Opulencia Corona (5 x 46) — $8.90 (Boxes of 20, $178)
  • My Father La Opulencia Robusto (5 1/4 x 52) — $10.10 (Boxes of 20, $202)
  • My Father La Opulencia Toro (6 x 54) — $11.80 (Boxes of 20, $236)
  • My Father La Opulencia Toro Gordo (7 x 56) — $12.40 (Boxes of 20, $248)
  • My Father La Opulencia Super Toro (6 x 60) — $12.54 (Boxes of 20, $250.80)

The line is named for an old Cuban brand that translates as “the opulent.”

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
