My Father Cigars kept its new release list fairly tight this year, with the My Father Connecticut the only true “new” cigar from the company.


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. It starts with the familiar My Father presentation but adds an interesting black and orange color scheme that really makes the colors come alive. Additionally, there are several different naming conventions on the box, but the company says it is simply the My Father Connecticut.


While not quite new, My Father’s La Antiguidad line was also getting a fair amount of attention in the center of the booth.

Beyond that, there are no announced plans to put out any limited editions in the foreseeable future, both to give these two new lines time to establish themselves, and also because the company has been busy with a number of other projects.

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.
