My Father Flor de Las Antillas Toro Grande
This 6x60 bohemeth was outstanding. Smooth start finished with a peppery full bodied flavor. The smoke was thick and luxurious throughout. Burned evenly. I am a Maduro man fell in love with the CAO flathead 660... until I tasted this My Father prodigy! Wonderful smoke! Get a stick or five you won't be disappointed, The single best 60 ring I've had to date!

Bad Choice
Great taste but about one third of the way down there is a hard dense mass that stops the burning or causes the burn to go around it and go down the side. With so many great cigar choices this is not necessary. Quality control problems seem to follow those makers with the number one cigar.

An Exceptional Treat!
This continues to be one of My Father's best cigars year in and year out. The burn, flavors and consistency of this cigar is an exceptional treat! I highly recommend it.

Love Flor de Las Antillas
My absolute favorite...hate that they sell out so fast. Good flavor, burns evenly, yet to have a bad stick in a box.

Flor de Las Antillas
I really enjoy everything about the Flor de Las Antillas. It's a beautifully wrapped stick that burns evenly and has an effortless draw. You can smoke this morning, day and night. For me, it's the perfect cigar. Buy them when you can as they are sometimes sold out or on back order.

One of the best cigarsI've ever had
A great smoke! From start to finish. My girlfriend and I love them. We've ordered this cigar so many times, it's a regulator in our humidor. Our go to weekend smoke. Yes that's right, OUR, we both smoke cigars and drink bourbon. A one of a kind woman and cigar! the two together make for a great weekend.

Not their best cigar
I found the pressed cigars to be a little harder to draw on, and it was a little harsher than I prefer. The My Father brand is a great brand, but I won't be buying this one again.

consistent pull
This cigar isn't as flavorful as some other ones out there, but your last pull will be just as good as your first. Definitely a favorite amongst my family and friends!

Excellent Cigar Needs some aging
Just received a new box of Flor de Las Antillas Toro cigars from CI, arrived perfect as usual thank you! The box says it was made in June, so this must be a fresh shipment, I smoked 2 and enjoyed them, but I remember this cigar to be more flavourful, so I am guessing it needs more time in the humidor to develop its flavour with some aging.

What a Cigar!!
One of my top favorites that I have been ordering each month for many months. My always go-to cigar for a mild and smooth smoke. Enjoy!

My Go To...on the course
The My Father Flor de Las Antillas cigar is one of my favorites, and the price is quite reasonable for a "Cigar of the Year". The cigar relaxes me on the golf course, even when my game is not on "Par"...

Will Purchase Again
First time I have tried a My Father. I was impressed. I took my time with this smoke and enjoyed it for three hours. Was nice ... Right size for an evening enjoying it and some friends. I will buy again.

Very impressive!!!
Sitting at work smoking a cigar and somega guy walks by and ask me what kind was I smoking. He spoke very highly of My Father's cigars and said you have to try it. I instantly bought this brand because I'm a medium cigar smoker and I was impressed by the taste and mainly the white pepper that's added to this cigar. I recommended it to all my family and c workers that smoke cigars!!!! J. MIDDLETON

My Fav!
I've been dabbling with cigars for 16 years and this is by far one of my top 5 cigars. I love the hints of cocoa in it. This guy pairs well with a delicious cup of coffee and a good Tawny Port wine.

top of the line
The Flor de Las Antillas cigar is my "go to" cigar for special occasions. It is very smooth, great draw and always consistent. It is not overly priced where I cannot have one every now and then in between special occasions. Great cigar.

Excellent cigar
I've smoked this cigar a couple times before, and was pleased at the great value CI offered on a box. Smooth, tasty, from beginning to end, and you don't want it to end!

Perfection each time!
These are excellent cigars. From the packaging to the last smoke they are well worth trying if you have not done so already. The cigars feel heavy and somehow exude quality upon initial touch/inspection. To add to the visual effect there is a red ribbon on the tip of each cigar, might seem useless but I that extra bell made me fall in love with the craftsmanship- each cigar is exactly the same, perfect every time. One of my favorite cigars by far. Smokes like a medium.

top notch
These are cigars that I also use as gifts at work. Bought a box for each of 3 retirees that have mentored me over the years. I wanted them to know how much they meant. What better way than with top level cigars such as these.

I love these cigars. Holds a nice even solid ash with a slow burn. Great tasting cigar throughout from start to finish. I'm a big fan of My Father products and personally feel this is the best one and can't beat the price.

A marvellous cigar at an excellent price
These are, hands down, my favourite cigars. They are flavourful, burn perfectly, and are consistently of high quality. They pair very well with bourbon, I should add.

An AMAZING stick that smokes and tastes PERFECT!!
First tried one of these beauties at the suggestion of the purveyor of one of my local brick-and-mortars and SOOOOO glad that I did;) I've smoked (and ordered) quite a few of these since then and have enjoyed each and every one. When I get them from CI they've ALWAYS arrived nice and fresh. Next up I'd like to try the "Le Bijou's'!!

Flor De Las Antillas Robusto
I am smoking one right now. And it is one of the best cigars in my humidor. It is a medium bodied cigar that does not overwhelm the senses. No bitter aftertaste here. Just a smooth pleasurable smoke with hints of pepper and earth tones. Previously I was a Padron 2000 fan, and I still like that cigar, a lot. However, if I was on a desert island and had to choose between a Padron and Flor De Las Antillas, it would Flor De Las Antillas hands down.

OMG what a great smoke!! Will be buying a box shortly!!

Toro review
This is in my top 20. Has its own type of complexity, that is just when you take a mindless puff ....you'll stop , look at it and raise your eyebrows and say" that was nice". Love these, they have enough smoothness and character to define it as a nicely made and well compiled cigar. The transition and definition of flavour is very pleasant. Solid medium to full and not overstated. never got off put to the flavour transitions and would go well with pretty much anything although I would really recommend with a smooth coffee, this would be at home with the finest cognac or malt. (heck a glass of water would be just as nice). would love to see some freebies on this pop up. will review again if ever i see a drop in quality but these seen to be quite consistent in 3 boxes. #11 of 20

Great cigar at great value
Tried these out based on suggestion from friend who knows a lot more about cigars than myself. Their comment that it was one of the 'best bang for the buck' cigars legally available, was 100% accurate. Plan to purchase again in the future

This is one of the most consistence cigars I've had in a long time, box after box all of them are the same. The most plesant draw. Tons of flavor without going over the top. If this was the only cigar i could buy, I could smoke it everyday!

Why do people like these?
Very messy, ashes fall easily, everywhere. Cigar reminds me of a smoldering leaf fire. Won't be getting these again.

Great Stick
I love all types of cigars. There are times when I want an oscuro and times that I want a Connecticut. However, this one is top-nothch—just a phenomenal stick. The wafting aroma is outstanding—I always get a compliment. The draw is great. The flavor never turns "chocolatey" (sometimes I like) or peppery–it's not too mild, just right for a medium late afternoon, evening front porch, or after dinner smoke. Give yourself a relaxing 1–1.5 hours for this beauty. Believe me, you will not be disappointed. This stick was recommended to me and I am forever grateful that I bought a 5 pack. As soon as my humidor(s) start depleting, I'm buying a box of these!

All That It's Cracked Up To Be!
Indeed, this cigar is one for the ages! This is one of the very few I'd consider having if I were stuck on a desert island with only one cigar label I could smoke. The depth and complexity are immediate within the first couple of puffs, and it only gets better from there. In one of my recent orders, I put in for a box of these as well as a box of CAO Cameroon Robustos. Alternating between the two of these (I consider the CAO's my first non-Cuban love) really shows off the FLA. One Word: Sophisticated.

Excellent cigar
I hold most great cigars to four stars.. Allows me to point out when there is an offering I think are very special cigars. These were going to get four stars for wonderful flavor, attractive wrapper, great construction, superb burn.. But the deciding factor was the extreme smoking time from this size vitola. The flavor was perfectly matched with the burn time giving what I think is a perfect cigar experience. Not an opus X but in that class of offerings on its own merits.

Go for box pressed vs standard roll
I agree with some of the reviews here but am still waiting on more from these cigars. Had a box press from a sampler I received and was very impressed. I ordered a box of toros and so far they have been inconsistent especially on the wrapping. It seems the leaves are too delicate and thin making them hard to wrap and had a few with holes or cracks affecting draw. The flavors are great though with pepper and spice throughout. I just wish I had bought the box pressed
2 out of 5
Decent cigar but poor consistency
It had a very rough burn that needed correction every 20 or so minutes. The flavor was peppery with a hint of vanilla. The 2/3 of the cigar it got very hot very quickly and nearly unsmokable. It was a fairly mild cigar with a fair bit of nicotine. The most redeeming part of it was the Kick in the stomach at the end. It seemed that the 5 I had, none were similar to the others and they were in my humi for 4 months. Over all I didn't care for the cigar but do try it for yourself

Let it sit
I was indecisive on pulling the trigger on this one until I tried a few puffs from my friend who happened to bring one to a gathering. Flavor, aroma, everything was great, so I decided to order some. Smoked one right off the "truck" and found it to be too peppery, bitter, and harsh. Fast forward to 4 months down the line, took one out of my humi yesterday to give them another shot. Bang, just like the first time I tried it! It was smooth, mellow, great medium bodied cigar without too much spice, but full of flavor. Unfortunately the wrapper and cap unraveled after the cut, burn was uneven at times, and the glue on the band had stuck onto the the wrapper, but I'm sure this was an isolated incident. Will buy again.

my buddy raved about these & they are pretty good, I don't find them as awesome as he does, but they are worth a try.

Inconsistent
I found significant inconsistencies from one stick to the next. At it's best, it was a pleasant smoke, on the medium side. At its worse, it tasted like cardboard and was not smokable. I have found this to be the case with other Don Pepin and My Father cigars. Some have "exploded". One stick is heavenly in taste and draw and burn. The next stick splits and falls apart and/or tastes awful. Too expensive to have such inconsistency.

Customer Testimonials
This by far is my favorite "go-to" cigar. It is great out on the lake, sitting by the campfire at night, or after a day of snowboarding down the mountains. I won't go into the "complexities" of the flavors, many others have already done that. I will say when someone says, "Hey, my friend here likes cigars what do you have that he may enjoy?" I can always grab a MF Flor de Las Antillas and confidently hand it over.
Just smoked my first. Outstanding from start to finish. Mixed well with Johnny Walker Green - served neat of course.
6/17/15 I received a couple of 5 packs of toros through MMAO. I absolutely love the flavor of this cigar, but several sticks have been really difficult to draw. Not sure why. Delicious smoke, all the same.
Bought the toro gordo. These cigars are by far my favorite. Burns even with a fine draw. They are a wonderful smoke that has the perfect combination of flavors. There is no way you will not enjoy this cigar.
4/23/15 Tried one of these while in Miami on business and REALLY enjoyed it. When I saw these pop up on the Make Me an Offer list I jumped. My 2nd offer was a hit and 2 5'ers arrived at mi casa within a few days. Had 2 within a few days & they were both deLIGHTful. But I just got home from work and toasted one up - to have with a delicious Dominican sipping rum - and sadly this bugger is giving me serious draw issues. I've taken a skinny wooden skewer & run it through a few times to try & open it up. It's helping some, but then it stops up again - seems jammed up (rolled too tight?) toward the end. Damn shame because I LOVE these things. Hopefully not a trend. I've got 7 more before deciding on a reorder. All my b*tching aside, I DO RECOMMEND TRYING THESE CIGARS, for they are a WONDERFUL, somewhat milder a alternative to my heavier Diesel Unlimited, Punch Bareknuckle & Ramon Bueso Genesis. Keep'em Comin', C.I. and thanks for the sweet deal!
Rich, light pepper/spice, with a medium body, & very similar flavor profile as the Rocky Patel '92 (at a lower price). The body and pepper are not as heavy as the Rocky but the flavor is VERY similar, just lighter. The richness seems to dominate the retro-hail and backed by the light pepper. Excellent draw and burned even. Would buy again.
This cigar is everything it is advertised to be. Slightly above medium. Smooth smoke and even draw. Very quickly became my everyday cigar. My golf buddies love when I carry extra.
I really enjoyed this smoke. Just got them in a few days ago and couldn't wait to try it this weekend. Easy draw, great flavor, not overpowering. Want to let the rest sit for a little until summer. That will be hard. But I have some others that I like. Definitely one of the best that I have smoked though. Gotta try it if you haven't. One of my favorites.
This is Jesus' go-to cigar; need I say more?
Being a beginner cigar smoker I found these an excellent smoke. I enjoy the taste and it was not over powering like some other cigars. The flavors appeared like people talk about unlike other cigars. I would keep these on hand.
Has quickly become my go to cigar, any time I open my humidor (which contains several top quality Cubans) these sticks just stare at me. Can't get enough, and for this price you can not go wrong. Currently smoking the Toro and Belicoso sizes.
Very consistent smoke...not my favorite but definitely up there when I don't go to my maduros. Love the flavor and always a nice smooth draw. Only complaint is sometimes they come un-wrapped on me at the end of the smoke.
The experts were right on this cigar. Viva Don Pepín once again. Nobody balances spice and creaminess like the Don. An excellent smoke across the board at a great price.
Outstanding cigar. Highly recommended.
Bought two of these at my local shop to try. They charged $11 p/stick. It was, however, worth every penny. The pre-light smell was of hay and even barnyard earth. Pre-draw was smooth and the cigar is well constructed. I purchased the Toro. Have had two of these over the Fourth of July weekend. All I can say is "WOW!" For the money, at least as priced by CI, this may be the best cigar for my taste which range toward the medium-full bodied. The burn was even, the draw was wonderful. I detected flavors of earth that had been used to grow coffee, a natural hint of sweetness or light cocoa, some white pepper, all with a smoothness that is rarely found in a cigar of this strength. Sample this cigar at your local shop and buy it in quantity from CI. This cigar truly earns a 95-96 rating. At CI's prices, there is no reason not to fill your desk top humidor with these....
You really should take Cigar Aficionado's rating with a grain of salt, but the 96 rating on this bad boy is well deserved. Fabulous in every area. Great draw and burn requiring no touch ups. The several I have smoked are always to the nub. Starts out with pepper and it develops wonderfully from there. You get cream, cocoa, cedar and a floral taste. Coffee tastes pop in and out. The finish is pepper cream and I retrohale just about every draw. In my opinion there is a lot going on with this. Easily one of my top favorites....
Wow, what a great cigar. It has an aroma that is unforgettable. The aftertaste last long time and I really enjoyed this cigar all the way to the nub. I have to get some more of these big babies. It is a mainstay in my humidor. Wow!
These cigars where amazing. I wish I had more. They let off a lot of smoke, way more then expected. I lit one up in a enclosed car and soon couldnt see anything. The cigar itself was good I will definitly get more, perhaps even a box.
Phenomenal cigar! I smoke a lot of Cuban cigars.... and never considered anything else. I was pushed into trying one of these and have been hooked on My Father cigars ever since. I feel that Flor de las Antillas ties for 1st with the original "My Father" and is a very reasonable price. Buy it - you won't regret it.
This is a must to keep in your humidor. I always keep a few on hand as it is one of my favorite smokes.
One of the best cigars I have ever tasted, going back to the 90's when I smoked Cuban Montecristos and Cohibas. The draw is almost light but always the same throughout the box. And these cigars age well, in a good humidor. The best cigar out today.
This is well deserving of the high ratings and still at a moderate price.
Fabulous cigar. Better than the Cigar of the Year 2013 in my opinion. Hard to find in the local shops. I just love smoking these.
I was vey hesitant to try this stick as I am not a fan of a lot of pepper in my smokes. This was an excellent stick and at this price point I had to buy a box. Well done!
Very nice smoke!!! Perfect Cigar!
toro toro lura...awesome cigar from first sight to finish! normally i prefer maduro or powerhouse cigars. this just put me in awe with total balanced flavor from start to finish worthty of it's top 90 ratings...buy some NOW! and be happy you did...: )";
Well what can I say, I was at my local cigar shop and a guy walked up to me and asked if I had tried one of these fine amazing cigars before. I had not so I bought myself one, Since then I have hunted like mad for them. The Flor de Las Antillas by far caught my attention. Creamy spicey goodness melded into a perfect blend. I have now ordered yet another bundle of these pure joys and plan to keep them well in stock within my humidor. If you have yet to try one of these little gems I suggest picking em up and giving em a try.
Get the Pepin salute right off the bat. Mellows out mid way through and the finish is excellent. Time for another box!
Number One for 2012? This is a cigar made in perfection. Now I'm not saying it's for the folks who enjoy a mild smoke, I saying this is an excellent smoke with some fullness to it which adds to it's character. I've bought a couple of boxes now and these smokes will be part of all my cigar orders. This, in my mind is the best cigar without shelling out major dough.
I had always hated cigars... I tried few times starting from 2008 to 2013 christmas when I got few as gift. I got 5 kinds and was thinking good that I didn't like until I tried this one. very first think that struck me was how complex is the smoke. by the time I finished first inch I was already committed to cigars. later I ordered top brand samplers of around 20 brands. I am still zeroing in on few brands but this one is still on top by wide margin. though today I got my second fav. I am surprised with its low price
This is one of my favorite sticks in my rotation. A true joy to smoke from start to finish. Great easy draw and volumes of smoke. Hints of coffee, mild spice, cedar, and a burnt pistachio on the finish. Understandably a cigar of the year! Treat yourself and buy a box while they are still available.
This is an outstanding cigar. It lights quick and burns slow. Unless you like to retrohale, I never noticed any spice or pepper. Full tilt flavor, without being overpowering. The kind of cigar you can savor, without it being the center of attention. Even at #1. Clean taste, with woodsy, nutmeg and sweet taste and aroma. Good smoke output too! Even new cigar smokers should enjoy this gem. Great price! Thanks CI
Creamy dessert like flavors from a perfect torpedo. A truly relaxing, enjoyable cigar.
A friend gave me one at a festival over the weekend and told me this is the last cigar I will ever buy. I told him that I have a collection of some of the world's greatest smokes in my humidors (which I do) and that it would be very hard for me to abandon any of my favorites to replace it with this no matter how good. I have many My Father sticks on hand, but I've never tried this version for some reason. Well, as soon as I finished smoking the Flor de Las Antillas, I whipped out my smart phone on the spot and went to CI to order a box right then and there, only to find them all back ordered. Although I don't think it will ever replace my ESG or Opus X collection, this is a phenominal cigar for a fraction of the cost of the premium Ashton or Opus X. Please get in another batch ASAP..
Bought a 5 pack back in Jan. and loved them; bought a box this time and I rarely buy boxes, but these are a great medium/full bodied cigar. And a very nice presentation too! Just got the box and I can't wait to smoke one.
Wow! Exactly as described in the copy, but I would add absolutely perfect burn, beautifully constructed, the box press is a delight to hold and smoke (I tried the Toro at a local shop), great balance and more than reasonably priced for this level of quality. I doubt they will remain this "affordable" for long.
These are amazing. I am so glad I purchased these. Only problem being is that they smoke too easy and my box was empty before I knew it....
These are a great smoke. Nice even burn too.
Excellent cigar from beginning to end.
Great draw! One of the best draws out of any cigar I've smoked thus far. Wonderful taste of pepper and not once was the cigar overpowering to the senses. Great taste and smell! Absolute must try.
I've heard people rave about these since it was named #1 cigar by Cigar Aficionado, and I'm happy to say I've finally had the pleasure of smoking one of these beauties. I had a box pressed toro that was beautifully packaged with a nice label and a ribbon around the foot. Nice looking for a $6-7 stick. It was delicious from the first puffs until the last nub with lots of flavor, good notes of spice, cream, and nice notes of tobacco. Perfect draw, not too firm or loose. And it was a good, cool smoke until the last inch that I smoked, and even that didn't get overwhelmingly hot. It's a great cigar especially for the price. I'm relatively new to the cigar world.... definitely deserves a 90+ rating. If you are curious to try one just as I was, I do recommend it. I had high expectations and it delivered.
Today I just enjoyed my first Flor de Las Antillas and WOW, much better than expected. Full of flavors, but mild to the palate. For me, it's the perfect morning cigar. Happy I found a box of them....
I heard good things about these sticks and obviously the cigar of the year award made me curious. I have to say I was quite disappointed. The burn wasn't great. The taste was similar in some ways to Pinar del Rio Habano Sungrown.... The taste was also just kind of boring and was not creamy or smooth.... A decent cigar that I overpaid for.
Holy Moly! One of the best cigars in my humidor right now. Thanks CI. Awesome!
Let me start with this description: perfect cigar, just wished it was a Toro or Churchill, I could have enjoyed an extra half hour or hour of this stogie. One of Garcia Family's non-traditional medium-bodied sticks, named after Cuba's nickname Flower of the Greater Antilles. Smooth as silk, medium-bodied through and through even on the retrohale. Notes of nutmeg, cocoa, sweet wood (like fresh cut cedar - this is what makes it hard to put down. Gonna have to get some more of these!!
When nothing else satisfies, I reach for one of these babies. YUM!
the cigar is well built..it smokes evenly and is not overpowering. it is a great cigar for the price. I dont think I would rate "the number 1 cigar of the year", but it is a quality smoke. I would buy it again at this price, but not for more.......7/10 spider....TOM
Wonderful. I think the best cigar you can buy at this price. I've smoked thirty doller opus x and this cigar doesn't beat that but is way up on the scale
A carnival of flavors cruising through the olfactories with this one! Palate-coating, heavy with peanut oil/sweet butter, caramel, maple, some subtle leather with that classic Pepin mystique present throughout.
This robusto was impossible for me to put down. Good from start to finish and remaining in the medium body realm. Very complex with big booming clouds of smoke. Just glad I picked these up on a hunch before Cigar Aficianado named it #1 of 2012.
Solid cigar it has that cuban type flavor,I always have a couple in my humidor.
This Cigar Is Everything As Advertised, Spice Up Front, Chocolate, Fruit, And Cream. It Will Always Be In My Humidor.
Spice Up Front A Tad Above Medium Bodied, Pepper, Cream, A Wonderful Cigar. Will Be Purchasing More Of These In The Future. This Cigar Will Always Be In My Humidor.:)
This is the best cigar yet from My Father Cigars. With the release of Flor de las Antillas, Jaime and family edge a step closer to Don Pepín's flavorful palette with distinct flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, earthy leather, and spice. A medium-bodied rendition of the San Cristóbal, this cigar is truly the flower they hoped it would be. Get you some.
