MY FATHER CONNECTICUT
My Father Connecticut is going to be an extension of the already existing line My Father and My Father Le Bijou; the cigar is blended by Jose “Pepin” Garcia and his son Jaime Garcia at the My Father Cigar Factory in Nicaragua It features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Nicaragua Corojo 99 Binder and Nicaragua Habano-Criollo filler, all the tobacco coming out of the Garcia’s farms with the exception of the wrapper which comes from Ecuador. This cigar also features a very unique aromatic leaf that gives the cigar aromas and flavors; a special fermentation process was given to this particular type of tobacco in order for it to release all the aromas and flavors that the Garcias were looking for to finish the last touch of this blend.
My Father’s first Connecticut wrapped cigar. Rising to fame with his plethora of medium to full-bodied hit makers, Jose “Pepin” Garcia has the art of manufacturing with strength down to a ‘T’. With My Father Connecticut, Pepin and his son Jaime step out of their comfort zone to introduce the first regular production Connecticut in the My Father line. The Cuban-esque profile is undeniable in this beauty, combining a lighter shade wrapper with intriguing complexity to be discovered throughout. It is the perfect addition to an already stunning arsenal bearing the Garcia name.
The blend is truly refined, boasting a rare Nicarguan Corojo 99’ binder overtop Nicaraguan Habano and Criollo long-fillers grown on the Garcia family farms. A seamless Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper is draped around the outside to round out this mild to medium-bodied blend and a special fermentation process has been put in place to accentuate aroma and flavor. Earth, cedar, and rich buttery notes can all be enjoyed throughout this prize with a sweet spice lingering throughout. One of the most anticipated releases of the year, My Father Connecticut is an exceptional choice for novices and connoisseurs alike. My Father Connecticut is clad in a tawny Ecuadorian Connecticut shade-grown wrapper that’s super-silky. Underneath, though, the formula becomes really interesting. A Nicaraguan Criollo ’99 binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan Habano and Corojo long-fillers help move the strength into the mild to medium-bodied range. This 90-rated gem has notes of leather, cocoa, nutmeg and a slightly floral character. Here’s all the proof you need that Don Pepin Garcia can make a great milder cigar, too.
