The Garcia family, who own and operate My Father Cigars Inc. in Nicaragua and Miami, continue to expand their portfolio of handmade, premium cigar brands.
The company has just introduced La Reloba, a cigar available in two wrapper styles, both of them from Nicaragua.
La Reloba was released quietly by the Garcias in April, and is among the less expensive smokes they make, with suggested retail prices starting at $4.50 for the corona (which at 5 5/8 inches long by 46 ring gauge is very large for that vitola) and going as high as $6.50 for a Torpedo, which measures 6 1/8 by 52 ring. The brand comes in two other sizes, Robusto (5 by 50, $5.60) and Toro (6 1/4 by 52, $6.00).
