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.

The My Father La Opulencia blend is, just as its name applies, about opulence. Specifically a great wealth of luxurious flavor that only Pepin Garcia could have created. He accomplished this by going outside of his comfort zone a bit and using an unusual blend of tobaccos that he had never combined before. Garcia began the blend using Nicaraguan Corojo, Criollo, and Habano tobaccos for the filler core and then topped it with a double Nicaraguan binder of Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo leaves. It is topped off with a dark and oily, Mexican Rosado Oscuro wrapper. This complex blend delivers complex flavors of dark and milk chocolate, leather, and earth with hints of espresso, nuts, pepper, cedar, and baking spices. It’s almost too much to process, but the flavors dance in and out and let the others shine through. La Opulencia is a fitting name for this spectacular blend.
