My Father is enchanting from head to toe. The traditional packaging and vitolas represents the roots of old world Cuba, while the blend combines the very best of Nicaragua with a Havana twist. Each leaf in this blend has been hand-selected for optimum aesthetics and flavor. First, you’ll notice the pristine wrapper. A Habano-Rosado leaf grown in the misty valleys of Ecuador. Beautiful and dark in color with an oily sheen and pre-light aroma that’ll make you froth at the mouth, this wrapper conceals a bold, full-bodied mixture of aged Nicaraguan long-fillers grown from Cuban-seed in Esteli. The smoke is robust, yet elegant, offering heavy notes of pepper on the palate and through the nose complemented by a touch of nuts and dark espresso. My Father is a complex, medium to full-bodied smoke that’s surprisingly smooth, creamy at times, and ultimately satisfying.
In addition to several 90 and 93-point ratings, My Father received a well-deserved '94,' to complement its spot among the world's 'Top 25 Cigars': "Very well constructed, with an oily wrapper and triple-seam cap. The cigar is immediately rich and meaty, with leather, coffee bean, and a balancing sweetness."
I usually spend a few hundred on cigars every other month and this is one of my saddest purchases. More then half off the batch wouldn't draw at all. They were extremely stiff and you could feel huge stems.
