My Father Limited Edition 2015 to Debut in July

My Father Cigars is preparing to roll out a limited-edition cigar for the year 2015, just in time for the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show in July. The cigar will be unveiled slightly ahead of the trade show at an exclusive launch party on July 9 at Casa de Montecristo in Countryside, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. Then it will ship to retailers nationally before IPCPR on July 17. The cigar is called My Father Limited Edition 2015 5th Anniversary Toro, and it celebrates the company's fifth anniversary since its inaugural limited edition release in 2010.

The cigar features an Ecuador Habano wrapper that the company calls "Rosado Oscuro," all Nicaraguan fillers, and two binders: a Nicaraguan Corojo 2006 and a Nicaraguan Habano. The launch of a special My Father limited-edition cigar is something of a tradition for the company, although the cigar is not always released on a yearly basis.

"My Father Limited Edition is an occasional release, always dependent on the availability of the aged tobacco," Alcides Montenegro, general manager and advertising director at My Father Cigars, told Cigar Aficionado. "The process takes time. We are very respectful of this."

The cigar measures 6 1/2 inches by 52 ring gauge and has a suggested retail price of $23. The limited-edition cigar ships in boxes of 14, each with its own individual coffin. Only 4,200 boxes will be released—4,000 for the United States and 200 for the international market. My Father Limited Edition 2015 5th Anniversary Toro is being rolled at the My Father Cigars Factory in Nicaragua.

The first My Father Limited Edition was released in 2010. Two more My Father Limited Edition cigars followed in 2011 and 2012. A series of My Father Commemorative 9/11 Limited Edition cigars were also released in 2011 and 2012 in conjunction with Casa de Montecristo to honor the lives of firefighters who died during the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks. But since then, the company has focused its limited editions on other brands in its portfolio. The My Father Limited Edition 2015 5th Anniversary Toro marks a proper return to form.
