Earlier today, Pete Johnson of Tatuaje/Havana Cellars, Inc. and José Ortega, vp of sales for My Father Cigars Inc., posted pictures of two exclusive releases for the Chicago retailer, Up Down Cigar. Johnson posted on his Saints & Sinners forum about his release, the Fausto 10/50. It’s a 6 3/8 x 43 Lonsdale priced at $10.50 per cigar and $210.00 per box of 20 cigars. The release is limited to 200 boxes of 20 cigars.

As for the My Father release, Ortega posted the following picture of Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial with special marking, but has yet to respond with any details about the cigar.


A representative from the store confirmed what commenter Rileyhenderson wrote below, the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial 10/50 features the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper first used on the Jaime Garcia Limited Edition 2011. The size is also a 6 3/8 x 43 Lonsdale with the similar $10.50 price point. The cigar is also limited to 200 boxes of 20 cigars. In addition to a pair of limited edition releases, the Connecticut-version of the Jaime Garcia has also made an appearance as a regional edition for New England.
