There’s a new My Father Cigars creation in the Chicago area today, as the four stores that are part of the Casa de Montecristo family have announced receipt of Oro de Nicaragua.

The manager of 8 to 8 Cigars, one of the stores in the Casa de Montecristo family, posted a picture of the cigar to his Twitter account earlier today:, the online store of the group, has already listed the My Father Oro de Nicaragua for sale. It’s available in four sizes, all coming in boxes of 12: a 6 x 52 toro and 6 1/8 x 52 torpedo, both of which sell for $119.95 per box, and a 5 x 50 robusto and 5 x 52 figurado, both of which sell for $95.95 per box.

Other than the Nicaraguan wrapper that is used, the blend on Oro de Nicaragua has not been disclosed. The cigars are made at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Janny García of My Father Cigars told halfwheel that the cigar is an exclusive for Casa de Montecristo and a one-time release, but didn’t have any additional information about the blend.

(García’s quote was added shortly after the original version of this article was published. A quote from the manager from of 8 to 8 Cigars regarding the cigar has also been removed.)

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.
