Box-pressed beauties from My Father.
Introducing the Flor de las Antillas, the first entirely box-pressed line from My Father cigars. Meaning 'Flower of the Antilles', the Flor de las Antillas represents Cuba, the largest island in the Greater Antilles islands, and home to the Garcia family's rich cigar making heritage. Traditionally focused on more full-bodied cigars, Flor de las Antillas ventures into the company's untapped niche of a true medium-bodied experience.
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.
It didn't take long for Flor de Las Antillas to catch the eye of critics earning eight 90+ ratings, including #1 Cigar of the Year honors and a 96-point score in the process, which noted: "Delicious from the first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down."
Due to delays at the factory, some My Father products are experiencing longer-than-usual backorder times. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we’re working diligently with the manufacturer to get more product as soon as possible.
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.
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.
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.
Outstanding cigar. Highly recommended.
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.
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....
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!
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....
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.
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.
Excellent cigar from beginning to end.
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'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.
Holy Moly! One of the best cigars in my humidor right now. Thanks CI. Awesome!
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.
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
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.
Glad I had a box (only half now) before CA rated it number 1 for 2012 with a 96. Hard to find, and on back order everywhere.
It is outstanding from start to finish and actually gets better as you smoke it. Be sure to retro hale, as the flavors are amazing and you will really get a sense of delight from this well crafted Nicaraguan cigar.
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.
