Anyone who knows anything about cigars knows about My Father Cigars, which is the culmination of the expertise of Jose Pepin Garcia’s long and noted journey in the cigar world. The name “My Father” is a tribute to Don Pepin from his son Jaime that began with a cigar that Jaime blended especially to honor his father. The cigars produced by Don Pepin’s former company had long been highly regarded, but the establishment of My Father in 2009 bumped that up a notch by not just a little bit. If you consider yourself to be a lover of fine cigars and haven’t yet explored what My Father has to offer, you owe it to yourself to delve into their portfolio, and what follows is why you should!
There are many, with several having garnered top ratings, such as Flor de las Antillas Cigar Aficionado No 1 Cigar of the Year, The Judge, and especially Le Bijou 1922. Besides the original Don Pepin blends, the inaugural My Father line is also a long-time favorite.
My Father cigars lean toward the stronger side of the cigar spectrum. As more of a mild to medium smoker, do they offer something more in line in what I prefer?
Yes! Vegas Cubanas fits that mold, and other lines such as My Father Connecticut will, as well. And while the original Cuban Classic was perceived as a strong cigar, the current version is very much in the medium range, while still providing a great amount of enjoyable flavor.
Do I need to age the My Father cigars that I have?
While traditional lore says that it would be a good idea, Don Pepin is on record in saying that cigars should be produced and smoked for immediate enjoyment, so smoke up! But there’s no reason to think that setting the cigars aside for an extended period of time to meld their flavors and mellow out will hurt them.
So why should I consider My Father cigars for my regular rotation of cigars?
Quality, quality, quality! From the choice of materials to blending and manufacturing, My Father stands among the very top of what one can expect from the cigar experience. On top of that, these cigars are very much value based, giving you great “bang for the buck”.
