According to Halfwheel, they are a 5x50 robusto that was given with a box purchased at some special events.

I don't believe that size is unique, but I'm not really up on My Fathers, so they may be.

Supposedly blended to be similar to the El Centurion, which doesn't help as I have never heard of those before, lol

I don't think I ever had a My Father or Don Pepin cigar that I didn't enjoy, both of the ones you mentioned are good smokes, not great smokes, but good smokes.

I've enjoyed other Don Pepins I have had, but recently the My Fathers just didn't really do much for me, even the popular and highly praised ones

I have one left. Yes they’re event only. I’ve been holding onto my last one just because they’re rare. So yes it’s a unique blend. I remember liking it Gifted one to a friend on c-bid have one left. I think I’m just gonna smoke it. I got mine with a box of pepin blues from back a while.

The band looks identical to centurion. I’d have to revisit the special to tell you if they’re similar though. I think there’s a centurion laying just under that special in the desktop pictured.

Cool, thanks for the info. Haven't even opened the box to look at them yet.

May give one a try tonight or tomorrow

Humm

Hopefully not too similar as I haven't really enjoyed the My Fathers I have had recently.

Used to love them, but recently old favorites and highly regarded ones just haven't done it for me for some reason.

I recently bought some my father #4. That’s the original my father blend in lancero. By recently I mean in the last year. Seems that time resting in my cooler has done them wonders. They’ve really come to life. I’d call them very good now. I’ve been resting the crap out of basically all the my father sticks I receive since I discovered this.

I realize many smokes are said to improve with age but I’ve found most smokes are ready to go as soon as they acclimate Others need more time. If you have storage put them thangs away if they’re new production. My father smokes have the date they were produced right on the box. Wish all cigars did this

Interesting that only a year had that much of an effect. I will gather all mine up in a box and sit on them for a year and try them.

Thanks for the great tip.

Have only singles aside from the Special S 3 pack, so no idea on age of what I have.

I agree, I wish nc's had box dates like cc's too
