The My Father El Hijo is back at Smoke Inn for another limited edition release, as the retailer has taken delivery of 500 additional boxes of 15 cigars.

The cigar debuted in 2011 and was the third release in Smoke Inn’s Microblend Series, a collection of limited editions made by companies including Tatuaje, Drew Estate, Quesada, Davidoff and several others. The 2019 release uses the same blend of tobaccos as the original, meaning a Nicaraguan binder and filler with an Ecuadorian habano 2009 wrapper. It comes in the same box-pressed 5 1/2 x 52 robusto vitola with an exposed foot, priced at $11.95 per cigar or $179.25 for a box of 15. That’s a $2.20 increase from the cigar’s original price of $9.75, however.

The original release of the My Father El Hijo consisted of 650 boxes of 15 cigars.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
