My Father Cigars will be adding a new flavor profile to its offerings this summer, when the company unveils the new My Father Connecticut at the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

The extension to the My Father and My Father Le Bijou lines was blended by Jose “PepÍn” Garcia and his son, Jaíme. The My Father Connecticut uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Nicaragua Corojo 99 Binder and Nicaragua Habano-Criollo filler to create a mild yet aromatic profile. With the exception of the wrapper, all of the tobacco used in the new cigar comes from the García’s farms, with the cigar being made at the My Father Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

The cigar is being released in four sizes: a 5 ¼ x 52 robusto, 6 ½ x 54 toro, 6 x 60 toro gordo and 6 x 48 Corona Gorda, with price points between $7.30-$9.40.

The company began shipping its latest creation, La Antiguedad, in late May.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
