At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, My Father Cigars finally showed off its Trade Show Exclusive with the My Father Garcia y Garcia Robustos Deluxe.
The Garcia y Garcia is one of My Father Cigars’ most premium offerings. The name Garcia & Garcia pays homage to the father and son duo of Don Pepin Garcia and his son Jaime, who have been the blenders behind the company’s offerings. The story around My Father Cigars is that Jaime Garcia created the original My Father Cigar to honor his father Don Pepin. In a subsequent release, Pepin created a cigar that honored his father with the My Father Le Bijou 1922.
Garcia y Garcia was originally released in 2016 in a 6 3/4 x 54 Toro Deluxe size. The new PCA Trade Show Exclusive is a smaller 5 3/4 x 52 Robustos Deluxe. The blend features an Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper over Nicaraguan fillers. The filler includes Pelo de Oro, which My Father Cigars is known to put into its most premium lines. The Robustos Deluxe are presented in ten-count boxes.
My Father had waited until the PCA Trade Show opened on July 10th to announce what its PCA Exclusive would be. According to My Father Cigars, the Garcia y Garcia Robustos Deluxe would only be offered to those retailers who attended the show. The Toro Deluxe size remains an ongoing production.
