IPCPR: My Father – La Gran Oferta
The 2018 IPCPR trade show showcased more new cigars than I can even keep track of. So far, this has been one of the best years in recent memory for cigar releases. From the new Liga Privada lines to the a slew of new, flavorful smokes from General Cigar, there was a lot of talk about which cigar is going to become the major fan favorite. Amongst my group at the show, there was one cigar we just couldn’t get out of our minds. That cigar is the newest release from the Garcia family and the team at My Father cigars.
The cigar is known as the My Father La Gran Oferta, which translates to the “the Great Offer”. It is an absolutely exquisite smoke, hand rolled with the finest tobaccos in the world. It starts out aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos plucked from the Garcia family farm in Esteli. The finishing touch is an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that is so flavorful, I don’t even know where to start.
The combination of aged tobaccos puts this cigar on par with anything I’ve smoked in the past few years, even some of the best Cuban cigars on the market. It is complex yet subtle, with each layer playing its part. It isn’t too strong, or too mellow, it is honestly as close to perfect as I’ve seen from a brand new cigar.
The Garcia family is amongst the best known and most beloved families in the cigar industry. Along with Padron and Fuente, they have more highly rated cigars than any other manufacturer. I can see the My Father La Gran Oferta not just being well received, but being the signature cigar of the year.
