My Father is preparing to release the third installment of its annual limited edition, The My Father Limited Edition 2012. Back again will be much of the My Father Limited Edition 2011 including the 6 1/2 x 52 Toro format and the blend from the 2011 release.

José Ortega, VP of sales, posted an image of the cigar recently on his Facebook page last week:

The cigar retains much of the same format as last year with the coffins and individually numbered boxes that were featured on the original My Father Limited Edition 2010 once again not present. Last year’s blend featured an Ecuadorian wrapper over Nicaraguan fillers, including some of the García family’s prized Pelo de Oro.

As of this time there is no date for shipment, other than soon.

(The original version of this story did not include information regarding the blend. Charlie Minato contributed to this report.)

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.
