My Father Cigars is releasing a limited edition, master crafted humidor to celebrate the 70th birthday of patriarch Jose Pepin Garcia.
Delayed by the COVID pandemic, the humidor is a collaboration between French marquetry and luxury humidor makers Elie Bleu and My Father Cigars.
Lined in cedar, the lockable, wood grain humidor is priced at $10,000 and can hold up to 95 cigars. It features a lift-out tray, and a custom-made humidification system and hygrometer strategically placed under the lid to monitor moisture levels for a high level of protection. Highlighted on the outer lid is the My Father Cigars logo, set on a high-gloss finish.
Elie Bleu built 75 pieces of which 70 will be sold, one for each year of Jose Pepin Garcia’s life. Pepin turned 70 on October 23. Each piece will be individually numbered by hand by the artist.
The humidor includes 100 cigars in the 6.5 x 52 vitola, as with other My Father Cigars Annual Limited Editions. The tobacco used is all grown on My Father Cigars farms in Nicaragua, and the cigar uses a corojo 99 wrapper. The company calls it a “one-of-a-kind blend.”
The cigars will be packaged in their own wooden box, allowing the owner to receive the humidor and personally stock it to his or her liking.
