Our second installment of four exclusive 15th Anniversary limited releases is the winter release by My Father Cigars. The My Father Atlantic 15th Anniversary box-pressed Robusto was created by the Garcia family to celebrate our 15th years in business. While visiting the Garcia family & the famed My Father Cigar Factory in Nicaragua we came up with the idea, after smoking a few My Fathers, to try a box-pressed version of the blend. We decided to base the blend on the original My Father cigar, with some tweaks to the filler tobaccos. Samples were presented while watching Cuban Baseball at Pepin’s house where we all enjoyed them over good Cuban rum. The tobaccos were hand-selected for this project personally by Jaime Garcia. Under his careful eye the cigars were rolled by their best torcedors in a one-time only small batch run. The blend uses a Cuban seed wrapper grown in Ecuador by the Oliva Tobacco Co., historically some of the best wrapper in the business, blended with rich Nicaraguan binder & filler tobaccos. Additional aging rounds out this wonderful smoke making it ultra smooth & extremely well balanced with just the right amount of spice & strength. The cigars are packed in traditional My Father style boxes of 15 cigars. 400 boxes total have been produced for Atlantic Cigar Company in this limited edition release for our celebration and your enjoyment.
