The My Father Limited Edition series is making a comeback. Illinois-based retailer Casa de Montecristo has informed Cigar Coop that the My Father Limited Edition 2015 5th Anniversary will have a soft-launch at an shop event being held on July 9th. This marks the first My Father branded “Limited Edition” cigar since 2012.
The 5th Anniversary branding pays homage to the five years the series has been produced. The series was launched in 2010 with the My Father Limited Edition 2010. This was followed up by the My Father Limited Edition 2011 and a My Father Limited Edition 2012. In 2013, the Don Pepin Garcia 10th Anniversary cigar was released as a limited edition. There was no 2014 limited edition. Each of the previous installments were all one time limited production releases..
The My Father Limited Edition 2015 will once again be a 6 1/2 x 52 Toro – which has been the signature size of the series since its launch. It will join the My Father Limited Edition 2010 and Don Pepin Garcia 10th Anniversary as coffin packaged cigars.
It is anticipated the My Father Limited Edition 2015 will be showcased at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show.
