My Father Connecticut
My Father Cigars has released its first cigar brand featuring an Ecuadoran Connecticut-seed wrapper.My Father Connecticut showcases a Connecticut-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador, a Corojo '99 binder from Nicaragua and a Nicaraguan filler blend of Habano and Criollo leaf. With the exception of the wrapper, every leaf of tobacco comes from the Garcia family's farms. Considered a mild cigar, but full-flavored. According to My Father, one of the tobaccos in the cigar undergoes a "special fermentation process" for enhanced aroma and flavor. "This leaf is a kind of viso that has an aging/curing process of three years," said Alcides Montenegro, general manager and advertising director for My Father.
