Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial comes with Limited Edition. The Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial was released in 2009. The cigar is named after Jaime Garcia, who owns and operates My Father Cigars with his father Don Pepin Garcia and his sister Janny Garcia. And the family celebrates the 10th anniversary of the brand with a limited edition toro.

For this milestone, Jaime Garcia decided that just a new vitola wasn’t enough. So he created a limited edition by tweaking the blend of the original cigar. The 6½x52 Toro is made from Nicaraguan fillers and a Nicaraguan binder. All these tobaccos are grown on the Garcia family farms. The wrapper is a Connecticut Broadleaf variety. But what makes this cigar special is the use of Pelo d’Oro tobacco. That tobacco is known for strength and sweetness. The Garcia Family grows it on their farms as well. It’s expensive tobacco and difficult to grow. It’s susceptible to disease and the yield of Pelo d’Oro is low compared to other tobacco varieties.
The cigars come in boxes of 16. The shape and look of the box are consistent with previous Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Editions. A box contains 16 cigars, and only 2500 boxes have been made. That brings the total production to 40.000 cigars. The cigars are being released on the American market next month. How many boxes have been set aside for the international markets has not been disclosed. When the cigars are shipped to the international distributors is also unclear.
It’s not the first time that the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial is used for a limited edition. My Father Cigars released a Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition in 2011 and in 2017 as well. And just as with the new limited edition, these cigars came in boxes of 16. The 2011 release only featured 15 cigars with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and one Connecticut Shade wrapper. The original release saw a total production of 3700 boxes, the 2017 release was capped at 3000 boxes.
