Don’t call it a comeback.
My Father Cigars, Inc. will once again be offering Vegas Cubanas to retailers nationwide. It was one of the first brands created by José “Pepín” García when he started making cigars under his own name in 2003. As the company’s portfolio grew with brands like Don Pepín García, Serie JJ, My Father, Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial and Flor de las Antillas, Vegas Cubanas was largely phased out.
Some retailers still carried the line, but it wasn’t part of the company’s—now known as My Father Cigars, Inc.—regular portfolio of offerings. It’s now back.
There are two small changes. It is now being produced at My Father Cigars, S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. In addition, the packaging has been updated a bit compared to the artwork that adorned the cigar when it was first introduced. The bottom of the artwork on both the band and box now reads My Father Cigars, a company that didn’t exist when the cigar was first introduced.
Vegas Cubanas uses Nicaraguan fillers grown in Estelí and Jalapa and a corojo wrapper, though the company is not specifying which country the wrapper came from.
The line is still offered in six sizes:
- Vegas Cubanas Coronas (5 1/2 x 44)
- Vegas Cubanas Delicias (7 x 50)
- Vegas Cubanas Generosos (6 x 50)
- Vegas Cubanas Imperiales (6 1/8 x 52)
- Vegas Cubanas Invictos (5 x 50)
- Vegas Cubanas Mangates (7 5/8 x 49)
Pricing is $6.38-7.76.
