After a few months of extra waiting, My Father Cigars, Inc. will begin shipping its most expensive cigar in its history.
The Garcia y Garcia is a 6 3/4 x 54 that uses an Ecuadorian habano rosado wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo 98 and Nicaraguan fillers, including pelo de oro.
Pelo de oro, which translates into golden hair, is known for its unique golden color and the difficulties associated with growing it. The tobacco has been banned in Cuba due to its propensity to attract mold, but it’s grown in a few places outside of the island, including the García’s farms in Nicaragua.
Suggested pricing for Garcia y Garcia is $35 per cigar.
It’s not only the company’s most expensive cigar, but it’s also going to be one of the more limited cigars. Production is not limited, but the company is only shipping the cigar to select accounts. Janny García, vp of My Father Cigars, told halfwheel that retailers who were selected will receive no more than five boxes as part of the first shipment.
