The second release out of four exclusive 15th Anniversary limited editions made to celebrate Atlantic Cigar's 15th year in the cigar business. The My Father Atlantic 15th Anniversary is the winter release by My Father cigars to mark the special occasion and for this cigar they blended up something quite special.
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 Don "Pepín" Garcia’s house, where we all enjoyed them over good Cuban rum. The tobaccos were hand-selected for this project personally by Jaime Garcia and under his careful eye the cigars were rolled by My Father's 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., who historically grows the best wrapper in the business, blended with rich Nicaraguan binder & filler tobaccos. Additional aging helped round out this wonderful smoke to make it ultra smooth & extremely well-balanced with just the right amount of spice & strength. These box-pressed Robustos are packed in traditional My Father style boxes of 15 cigars. Only 400 boxes total have been produced for Atlantic Cigar Company, so don't miss your chance to get a truly rare and special cigar and help us celebrate 15 years in the best business in the world!
