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.
