My Father Cigars Announces Fonseca Details, to Hit Stores in September
My Father’s updated Fonseca is expected to arrive in stores in September, the first issue coming from the December purchase of the Fonseca brand from Quesada.
The medium bodied Nicaraguan tobaccos that make the Fonseca were grown by the Garcia family and are finished with a shade-grown Corojo rosado 99 wrapper. For the Cosacos size, each cigar is wrapped in white tissue paper, as has been the tradition for the Cuban Fonseca.
Boxes of 20 cigars come in the Belicosos (5 1/2 x 54), Cosacos (5 3/8 x 42) Petit Corona (4 1/4 x 40) Robusto (5 1/4 x 52) and Toro Gordo (6 x 55).
The Cosacos vitola is also offered in five-cigar tins. An additional vitola, Cedros (6 1/4 x 52), is individually wrapped in cedar.
The Fonseca brand was founded in 1892 when Don Francisco E. Fonseca established a factory and cigar brand bearing the family name in Havana. Fonseca has since become a recognizable brand, produced in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. U.S. rights for the Fonseca brand is now owned by the Garcia family and is the newest addition to the My Father Cigars portfolio.
