Not your father’s maduro
There’s few things that get our hearts pumping over here at CI HQ more than new cigars. Especially when the blend being introduced is the follow-up to a former #1 Cigar of the Year, that was rated ‘96’ and given ‘90’+ ratings eight different times. Those who have done their homework (or who looked at the picture to the left) will know I’m talking about Flor de Las Antillas Maduro by My Father. A medium to full-bodied maduro of the highest caliber, Flor de Las Antillas Maduro proves that My Father Cigars really can catch lightning in a bottle. Twice.
Things pop off with this one from the word go. A sharp box-press highlights the natural oils of the Ecuadorian Habano Sun Grown Oscuro wrapper, and an expertly rolled Nicaraguan binder and filler underneath give off aromas of cedar, spice, and earth. Drawing on the Flor de Las Antillas Maduro, you’ll find nuttiness, earth, classic Pepín spice, and a hearty oakiness. It’s full-flavored, it’s rich, it’s incredibly chewy, and it’s a cigar that needs to find its way to your humidor today.
Good news! Flor de las Antillas Maduro has earned an impressive 92-point rating, noting: "Every puff of this dark, box-pressed cigar layers the palate with a rich combination of toast and chocolate balanced by hints of baking spice over a warm, woody base."
