Thompson Cigar’s growing stable of exclusive releases has its newest cigar.

The Tampa retailer and My Father Cigars have teamed up for the Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic Connecticut. The three vitola line is an extension to My Father’s Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic. For the Thompson exclusive, an Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed wrapper replaces the corojo 99 seed that is normally found on the cigar. It sits over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers.

It’s offered in three sizes: Robusto (5 x 50, $7.50), Toro (6 x 50, $8.33) and Churchill (7 x 50, $9.17.) Each size is offered in 12-count boxes.

Thompson describes the cigar as limited, but ongoing production.

Last year, Thompson collaborated with the company for the My Father Churchill.
