My Father Cigars announced on Friday afternoon that they would be joining the ever-expanding 6 x 60 ring gauge portion of the cigar market with a pair of new cigars, the My Father #6, a box-pressed 6 x 60 Toro Gordo; along with the Don Pepín Garcia Original in a 6 x 62 Toro Grande.

From the company’s Facebook post:

New sizes added to the My Father and the Don Pepin Garcia Original

As times change, smoking preferences change and the new trend for consumers is the 60-ring-gauge cigar. For this reason, you asked and we delivered. There is now a new size in the My Father line and one in the Don Pepin Garcia Original.

In the My Father line we have added the My Father #6, a box pressed Toro Gordo 6 x 60, in an 18 cigar count box. This box will have the beautiful and signature packaging of My Father, but will be in three rows of 6, a new style for this line. Suggested retail price for the My Father #6 is $12.00 per cigar. For the Don Pepin Garcia Original we will be releasing a 6 x 62 Toro Grande, also box pressed in an 18 cigar count box, with traditional Don Pepin Garcia packaging in rows of 6. Suggested retail price for the Don Pepin Garcia Original Toro Grande is $9.50.

Expect these in stores for the holidays. Shipping will begin the first week of December!

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.
