Greetings, lovers of limited editions. We posted previously about the 2011 My Father Humidor which contain 50 of the cigars we write about today, the My Father Limited Edition 2011! They arrived today in our humidor and we wanted to discuss the details as to why these cigars are so special.
The Garcia family decided to use copious amounts of the very rare Pelo d’Oro tobacco. With a name meaning, in Spanish, “Golden Hair”, this tobacco looks as beautiful as it tastes. Pepin says about the Pelo d’Oro, “It’s the best Cuban seed ever.” The problem, though, is that Pelo d’Oro is a farmer’s nightmare because of its susceptibility to blue mold and other pests. These risks make Pelo d’Oro a very low-yield crop and almost impossible to use in regular production. This year’s L.E. was blended by Jaime Garcia, son of Don Pepin Garcia. Gorgeously packaged in 12-count boxes, these cigars will not stay on the shelf too long. Last year, smokers were scrambling to get their share and many called across state lines to find shops who still had some.
