Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial 10th Anniversary Limited Edition 2019 comes in a single Toro size.

The Garcia family is celebrating a 10-year milestone with the release of a limited-edition smoke. Called Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial 10th Anniversary Limited Edition 2019, the 6 1/2 inch by 52 ring gauge Toro commemorates the initial release of the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial, a brand that debuted in 2009. Rolled with a tobacco not found in the regular-production version of the brand, the new cigar should be shipping to retailers November 1.

Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial 10th Anniversary is covered in a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The cigar is billed as full-bodied by the company, and unlike the original Reserva Especial, the 10th Anniversary contains Pelo d'Oro tobacco in the filler, a varietal that’s known for its strength and sweetness. It’s also considered to be a challenging, low-yield tobacco for farmers to grow, due to its susceptibility to disease.

The binder and filler tobacco in the cigar (including the Pelo d'Oro) is grown on the Garcia family farms in Nicaragua. Set to retail for $20 each before taxes, the 10th Anniversary Toro comes packaged 16 cigars per box. Only 2,500 boxes will be released.

Made at the My Father Cigars factory in Nicaragua, the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial is named after Jaime Garcia—the son behind the father, son and daughter team at My Father Cigars. The cigar soft-launched at a special event in December 2009 at Cigar Inn (now called Casa de Montecristo by Cigar Inn) in New York City. The cigar shipped nationwide the following year.
