My Father Cigars will be the latest company to introduce a Connecticut Shade Cigar. The company will be introducing the My Father Connecticut at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas. Some initial details on this announcement were reported by Cigar Aficionado this week.
The My Father Connecticut is significant for two reasons. First, it will be My Father Cigars first regular long filler production cigar featuring an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The company’s releases with this wrapper have been primarily limited to regional releases (Jaime Garcia New England Edition), shop exclusives ( My Father Le Bijou 1922 Ecuadorian Connecticut Federal Cigar Edition, Casa de Montecristo’s My Father Commemorative 911 Limited Edition 2012 Connecticut Ecuador), and limited editions (Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition 2012).
Secondly, this becomes the first extension to the company’s eponymous My Father line in over five years. The last new blend under the My Father line was 2009’s My Father Le Bijou 1922 edition.
At a glance, here is a look at the My Father Connecticut line as reported by Cigar Aficionado.
The company has said all of the Nicaraguan tobacco comes from the Garcia family farms.
