Cigar enthusiasts may have heard of the Fonseca brand but they’re about to be able to experience it in a completely new way. My Father Cigars has begun shipping its version of Fonseca to tobacconists around the country.
Previously, the non-Cuban version of Fonseca was a brand was owned and made by Quesada Cigars. My Father Cigars eventually acquired Fonseca from Quesada and have spent the past year reworking the blend. The new Fonseca made by My Father Cigars features all Nicaraguan tobaccos, a big difference from Quesada’s Dominican-take on the brand. The tobaccos found in the new Fonseca were all grown by the Garcia family, who also own My Father Cigars.
My Father Cigars’ Fonseca features a shade-grown Corojo ’99 wrapper and will be available in six different vitolas: Belicosos (5 1/2 x 54), Petit Corona (4 1/4 x 40), Robusto (5 1/4 52), Toro Gordo (6 x 55), and Cedros (6 1/4 x 52). Each cigar will be priced between $7-$11.20 per cigar, or $140-$224 per 20-count box. There will also be a tin-sized version, a Cosacos (5 3/8 x 42), available at a later time. Fonseca will be handcrafted at My Father Cigars’ factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
