The Fonseca brand dates back to 1892 when its founder, Don Francisco E. Fonseca established his own factory and cigar brand bearing his family name in Havana, Cuba. Over the past 120 years, Fonseca has been one of the most recognizable brands and has been produced in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. Today, Fonseca is proudly owned by the Garcia family and is the newest addition to the My Father Cigars portfolio of brands. This medium-bodied blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos (all grown by the Garcia family) is finished with a stunning shade-grown Corojo 99 rosado wrapper. The end result is a profile of richness, earth, and spice that has been tamed to pay homage to the smooth and lighter profile of the classic Fonseca brand.
