To get the full picture of the legendary My Father cigars, it's best to start at the beginning. It all began in 1950 when Jose Pepin Garcia was born in Cuba. As a youth, he could not have imagined that his love and passion for cigars would help him build one of the most recognized companies in the cigar industry. In 2009, the My Father Cigar factory was opened in Nicaragua. Don Pepin Garcia is recognized by many as America’s hottest Cigar Maker. His son, Jamie Garcia, is no slouch either. Together, the two have developed countless blends for My Father Cigars as well as several other companies in the market. Many of My Father’s lines have achieved 90+ ratings and “Cigar of the Year” awards. The Garcia Family continues to follow the tradition they lived and learned in Cuba, and have crafted many top-rated blends including the 97-rated and #1 Cigar of 2015 My Father Le Bijou 1922, and 96-rated and #1 Cigar of 2012 Flor de Las Anitllas Maduro.
