The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2010
My Father No. 2 Belicoso
A father can feel no greater pride than when he is paid tribute by his son and when he watches that son step into his shoes and perform admirably upon the world stage. When Jaime Garcia set out to blend a smoke for his father, José “Pepin” Garcia, he tried to work in secret, but someone tipped off his old man, a growing legend in the cigar world. Pepin smoked the cigars, deemed them delicious, and was moved when Jaime revealed his intended brand name: My Father. Last year the My Father No. 1 ranked No. 3 on our Top 25 list. This year’s appearance of the My Father No. 2 cements the delicious cigar brand as a consistent great. The cigar is rich and woody, with notes of toast, tea and nuts. We expect the Garcias to impress cigar smokers with their wares for many more years to come.
