At this year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show in July, My Father Cigars had only one new product on display, a new size of its Garcia & Garcia line that was only available to retailers who attended the trade show. Now, that cigar is on its way to retailers.

It’s called the My Father Garcia & Garcia Robusto Deluxe, and is a 5 1/4 x 52 vitola. Like the Garcia & Garcia that came out in June 2016, the cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano rosado wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers that includes criollo 98 and pelo de oro.

While production numbers were not finalized at the show, the company has announced it produced a total of 3,000 boxes of 10 cigars at its factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Each cigar has an MSRP of $30.

Unlike the original, the Robusto Deluxe comes in a slightly more toned-down box. While it looks largely the same, gone is the metal My Father logo from the lid, replaced with a gold screen-printed version, much like you see on many of the company’s other boxes.

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