My Father Cigars will introduce tin packaging to the Don Pepin Garcia Original (Blue Label) Demi-Tasse line. A new six count tin will now be available for the Demi-Tasse – a 4 1/2 x 32 vitola that is a part of the Don Pepin Garcia Original line.
According to CHIMP Inc, who distributes and markets My Father Cigars in the Southeast, plans are for the new tin to be introduced in November. Six tins will be packaged in a box which will also serve as a display unit.
Don Pepin Garcia Original started out as one of the first blends by Jose Pepin Garcia (better known as Don Pepin Garcia). The cigar was originally made at the El Rey de los Habanos factory, but production would shift to Tabacalera Cubanas S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua. However the blend has remained close to Don Pepin Garcia’s heart. It is widely considered to still be one of his favorites. The blend is a Nicaraguan puro consisting of a Nicaraguan Corojo Oscuro wrapper, a Nicaraguan Criollo binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo filler.
