My Father La Opulencia

Nicaragua

95

The My Father La Opulencia blend is a marriage of two opulent tobaccos with splendid provenance—Mexican and Nicaraguan. The wrapper is a dark Mexican San Andrés that the company calls Rosado Oscuro. There are two Nicaraguan binders underneath, one Corojo and one Criollo, both of which bolster the body of the cigar. And then there’s the filler, a combination of Cuban seed tobaccos grown by the Garcia family, owners, and makers of the My Father brand. The Garcias have a number of farms in Nicaragua, and La Opulencia shows off the quality of the leaves grown on these tobacco plantations, known as El Pedrero, Las Lometas, and La Bonita.
