Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Petite Robusto by My Father



I’ve smoked more than several of the My Father Jaime Garcia Reserva Especials and they’ve become one of my favorite “aged” Broadleaf morning cigars. I know Connecticut Broadleaf in the morning; that’s just how I roll.

I’m a huge fan of the My Father Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial and most everything about it. This is a firmly packed and hefty cigar for its size and to the feel and touch. My cold draw delivered sweet cocoa and earthy tobacco. Once lit dark chocolate flavors and a spicy retrohale keep me company pretty much all the way through.

So if you’re like me and appreciate smooth chewy smoke of Cocoa, Earth, Leather and Coffee with a slight Vanilla and Spice finish, go grab a few of these.

These are Box Worthy.

I’m loving this cigar.

After my first pre-light draw, all I could think about was chocolate… I wonder why?

This is a hefty cigar for its size, and I’m guessing it must be packed because the initial draw was pretty tight but not so that it prevented a mouthful of chewy smoke.

I love this affordable simple smoke. Perfect as my working companion.
