Between now and the Chattanooga Tweet-Up, we will be featuring "spotlight" posts on each of the sponsors of the event. The order was chosen randomly.
After becoming a household name (at least in cigar-smoking households) making cigars for other people, Jose Pepin Garcia decided to produce his own line of cigars, originally with the Blue Label, Cuban Classic and Series JJ (named after Garcia’s kids, Jaime and Janny). Jaime blended the original My Father to celebrate Don Pepin and gave the company its name in the process.
The My Father Cigars factory in Nicaragua still makes cigars for many other vendors, but their “house” lines are just as widely respected, from the original trio, to the My Father and its offshoots, to the Jaime Garcia Reserve and the brand-new La Dueña.
My Father’s Vice President of Sales, Jose Ortega, is expected to be in town for the Tweet-Up. (And if you should be going through Knoxville on your way to or from the Tweet-Up, do make a point of stopping into Silo Cigars which is a My Father Lounge. Pick up the Lounge Edition cigar...you will not regret it!) Check out some of our past reviews of My Father products:
