Description It’s not the first time, and certainly will not be the last time Standard & Twain features a cigar from Pepin Garcia’s My Father factory. The My Father La Opulencia combines elements of two classic smokes - the original My Father and the Le Bijou - with a Mexican Rosado wrapper and a Nicaraguan filler grown from the Garcia’s own farms. Having already won two cigar of the year awards from Cigar Aficionado, in 2018 La Opulencia was named the #2 cigar of the year. This cigar is extremely smooth and balanced, sweeter and with less spice than many of the Garcia offerings. 
Review: Halfwheel There are perhaps a dozen cigar companies that I will make an effort to eventually try every single new blend they release, and My Father is one of them. The La Opulencia is an extremely smooth blend, with a profile that features a medium-full strength and dominated by core flavors of both earth and leather, along with a slight vanilla bean sweetness that comes and goes throughout.
Review: Cigar Aficionado The combustion is perfect, the draw offering earthy underpinnings of chocolate and cocoa with each puff, balanced by a mid-palate oakiness and sweeter, subtle top notes of anise and nougat. And this cigar evolves, getting stronger incrementally as the flavors gradually gain intensity. It’s another top effort from the Garcias, who have won Cigar of the Year two times.
