On one hand you can count the number of cigar makers who arrived on the scene and changed the game. At the top of that very short list is Jose “Pepin” Garcia, and boy did he turn the industry on its ear. At the time, there was no one making cigars that captured the essence and flavor of Cuban cigars. His unique fermenting and blending style coupled with his small batch production in Miami quickly catapulted his cigars to the top of aficionados’ hit lists. With his well-deserved success, expansion was the only way to keep up with demand. He quickly established the My Father factory in Nicaragua and began to transfer production and expand his portfolio. One of the first big hits his new factory produced was the Flor de las Antillas and was his first blend to earn Cigar Aficionado’s prestigious Cigar of the Year award.
Jaime Garcia, son of Don Pepin Garcia, has created a great cigar that bears his name. Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial cigars are made using 2 different kinds of Nicaraguan tobacco for the filler. The first is a tobacco grown by Garcia and his father in Nicaragua and the second is grown by the Oliva family. It uses a Nicaraguan binder and is topped off with a deep, dark Connecticut Braodleaf wrapper. This is a delicious medium to full bodied cigar with rich flavors of earth and coffee!
