My Father Cigars is adding new sizes to two of its regular-production Nicaraguan lines. The Judge will have a Corona Gorda, and La Opulencia is getting a box-pressed Torpedo.

Shipping in March, the My Father The Judge Corona Gorda measures 5 5/8 inches by 46 ring gauge and will come in 23-count boxes. It’s set to retail at $11 per cigar.

A stronger, full-bodied offshoot of the core My Father brand, The Judge debuted in 2016. It consists of an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo binders and filler tobacco from three of the Garcia’s family farms located in Nicaragua: La Bonita Two, El Pedrero and San Rafael. Cigar Aficionado named the Grand Robusto the No. 7 cigar of 2017.

Also shipping next month, the My Father La Opulencia Torpedo Box-Pressed measures 6 1/2 by 52 and comes in boxes of 20. It will retail for $12.20 per cigar.

My Father La Opulencia was originally a Cuban brand that the Garcias resurrected in 2017 as another My Father spinoff. The line features a Mexican wrapper, two Nicaraguan binders (one Criollo and one Corojo) and various Cuban-seed Nicaraguan fillers, also grown on the Garcia family farms. The Toro was named the No. 2 Cigar of 2018.

Like all My Father cigars, The Judge and La Opulencia are made at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Nicaragua.
