Top 25 Cigars of 2017 by Cigar Journal

The time is here for the long awaited announcements of the cigars of the year! 

Cigar Journal has just released their list, and without a suprise the best cigar this year goes again to My Father Cigars.

#1 | MY FATHER THE JUDGE GRAND ROBUSTO

José Pepin Garcia – respectfully called Don Pepin – is a name known to friends of the cigar all over the world. And rightly so. Born in 1950, he left his homeland of Cuba in 2002 to go first to the United States (from 2003), and then to try his luck in Nicaragua – with resounding success. In 2009, he started his company My Father Cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua, and opened an impressive factory. Together with his son, Jaime, and daughter, Janny Garcia, he creates cigars that are regularly showered with awards. My Father The Judge Grand Robusto was released at the end of 2016.

Tasting notes: This cigar starts off slightly salty, with interesting woody and almond tones. It is unbelievably smooth, nutty, delicately acidic, and develops subtle notes of anise, coffee and bread in the very creamy smoke texture.
