Greg and Victor from Rems Smoke Shop in Grand Junction smoke the My Father Flor de la Antillas cigar.
About the cigar
Spanish for Flower of the Antilles this cigar won Cigar of the year in 2012 with a rating of 96 from Cigar Aficionado. This cigar won seven other 90+ ratings that year. The Garcia family normally makes stronger cigars, this was their first attempt at a medium bodied cigar.
Featuring an all-Nicaraguan blend of tobaccos, Flor de las Antillas maintains My Father’s reputation for crafting full-flavored, well constructed handmades. Greeting you from the outside is a dark brown Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper beautifully box-pressed and smooth to the touch. This leaf houses a bouquet of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder, to create an exceptionally balanced and smooth experience. Each Flor de las Antillas delivers a distinct array of flavors, including notes of cocoa, pepper, sweet cedar, and earth. From start to finish, Flor de las Antillas maintains its smooth character and never goes a tick over medium to full-bodied. An anytime of day My Father experience. – Cigars International

Initial Lite and First Third
The first puffs on the cigar provided strong notes of pepper. Once smoked an inch we had notests of cedar, cocoa and coffee on the finish with pepper in the retrohale.
Still getting sweet notes of cedar, and cocoa with pepper prevalent on the retrohale.
Final Third and Final Thoughts
The cigar is a medium cigar, great for mornings with a cup of coffee. The cigar burns well, tastes great with earth, sweet cedar, cocoa, and some pepper. We highly recommend this cigar.
