The Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition is back—white box, earth blue secondary band, dark wrapper and all.

For the first time since the cigar debuted in 2011, My Father Cigars, Inc. will release the special version of the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial blend. The 6 1/2 x 52 toro extra once again uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

Like the original, it will be sold in heavy 16-count boxes.

There are however four small changes. First, the cigars feature a ribbon foot band delineating them as a 2017 release. Second, production will be 3,000 boxes instead of the 3,700 boxes for the 2011 release. In addition, pricing has increased from $16 to $17 per cigar. Finally, all 16 cigars will be broadleaf wrapped. The original release featured 15 cigars per box with the broadleaf wrapper and a single cigar with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

The Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition 2017 is expected to ship next week.
