Jaime Garcia Reserva Especiale

Don Pepin Garcia is one busy man. This cigar icon lends his talents to the creation of several new cigar lines, but that does not take away from his family time, particularly when it comes to his son, Jaime. It's not all fun and games for this father and son tandem, though, as the two work together to produce cigars for the family's company, My Father Cigars Inc.. Now there is a new creation that will be released from the company, called the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especiale. Having one's name stamped on a cigar line is truly an accomplishment, and it surely helps when your father is one of the most respected cigar makers in the industry. Having a knowledgeable figure like Don Pepin to raise you and teach you about the business is definitely a plus.

This new line from My Father Cigars is said to be medium to full-bodied. The filler is made from two types of Nicaraguan tobacco, while the binder is Ecuadorian. Completing the cigar is a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The line will be offered in six different sizes, and smokers can expect to pay around $6 to $8 on average for a single.

Cohiba Behike – how much?


Back in February, Habanos S.A. formally announced their anticipated release of the Cohiba Behike line of cigars. The main hype behind the cigar is that it will use extremely rare Medio Tiempo tobacco, which supposedly gives the cigar much added flavor. When Habanos announced the Behike, they also warned customers that it would be a cigar that would be hard to find and produced on a limited basis, mostly due to the scarcity of the Medio Tiempo tobacco used to make it. Not much was said about just how much the Behike would cost, but there are some indicators floating around now that give us an idea of what it will take to buy this special cigar.

For example, according to the British outlet C.Gars Ltd., they list prices for different Behike sizes in British pounds. Converting their prices for boxes of ten reveals that the BHK 52 box costs $395, the BHK 54 costs $521, and the BHK 56 costs $586. Looking at that data, singles average out to around $40 to $60. That is definitely high, and who knows if that is an accurate price for customers in the United States. Still, it does give you somewhat of an idea as to how much the Behikes will cost, so if you want to get one when they become available, start saving your money.

I hope you enjoyed these blurbs on some new releases. Stay tuned to for more in the future!

I just picked up a single a week or so ago and I'm letting it sit for a while in my humi. I can not wait to try this one. Every time I walk by the humi I stare at it. Patience patience patience but I don't know how much longer I can hold out.
