IPCPR: My Father – La Gran Oferta

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

The 2018 IPCPR trade show showcased more new cigars than I can even keep track of.  So far, this has been one of the best years in recent memory for cigar releases.  From the new Liga Privada lines to the a slew of new, flavorful smokes from General Cigar, there was a lot of talk about which cigar is going to become the major fan favorite.  Amongst my group at the show, there was one cigar we just couldn’t get out of our minds.  That cigar is the newest release from the Garcia family and the team at My Father cigars.

The cigar is known as the My Father La Gran Oferta, which translates to the “the Great Offer”.  It is an absolutely exquisite smoke, hand rolled with the finest tobaccos in the world.  It starts out aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos plucked from the Garcia family farm in Esteli.  The finishing touch is an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that is so flavorful, I don’t even know where to start.

The combination of aged tobaccos puts this cigar on par with anything I’ve smoked in the past few years, even some of the best Cuban cigars on the market.  It is complex yet subtle, with each layer playing its part.  It isn’t too strong, or too mellow, it is honestly as close to perfect as I’ve seen from a brand new cigar.

The Garcia family is amongst the best known and most beloved families in the cigar industry.  Along with Padron and Fuente, they have more highly rated cigars than any other manufacturer.  I can see the My Father La Gran Oferta not just being well received, but being the signature cigar of the year.  Check back right here at JR Cigars for more information s the newest cigars from the 2018 IPCPR trade show start to arrive.

My Father – Crafted By Jaime Garcia

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Hello my friends, Nick Libretti here with a special announcement.  If you’ve been paying attention to our Instagram page recently, you may notice I have announced a brand new project coming to JR cigars this month.  This isn’t your typical private label, this cigar has been years in the making.  The JR team has been meeting with the Garcia family for a private label for quite some time, but for one reason or another, it never came to fruition.  Usually, it was a timeline thing, they didn’t have enough of a certain tobacco, or they wanted to wait for some leaves to age a bit longer.  This is what happens when you work with perfectionists, yet the result was more then we could have ever hoped for.

The Crafted by Jaime Garcia is an intensely flavorful medium to full body smoke.  All of the tobacco is grown on the My father farms in the heart of Nicaragua.  Aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos are accompanied by a special Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper.  This unique leaf is a combination of the spice of the original My Father with the rich chocolate notes of the My Father Le Bijou.  The construction is as close to perfect as I’ve ever seen, with a tight white ash and amazing smoke output.

The Crafted by Jaime Garcia is available in several great sizes and comes in small wood boxes of 10.  They are exceedingly limited due to the age and limited availability of this particular wrapper.   When they are released in May, make sure you are one of the first ones to pick them up.  One of the finest cigars to ever come out of Nicaragua will now be available right here at JR Cigars.
