Did you know that Cuba is the largest of the Greater Antilles Islands?
Well, if you didn't...now you do :)
And because of it's beauty, Cuba earned the name "Flor de las Antillas"...which is why the famed Garcia family decided to put that name on one of the best cigars released in the last few years.
The Flor de las Antillas cigar has given the My Family cigar company its largest and always dreamed of recognition...culminating with the Flor de las Antillas Toro being included in Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of the Year 2012...as the NUMBER 1! Here's how they described it:
"It has a gentle, rounded box press and a beautiful and evenly colored wrapper. The smokes are delicious from the first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down. They are classics, 96-point smokes on our 100-point scale."
Or as my partner Edwin succinctly describes it, "Smokey perfection!"
Guess what? They're all completely right! and that's why...
...Juan's Badass Cigar of the Week is the My Father Flor de las Antillas Toro!
It is a 3/4 to Full-Bodied cigar Box-Pressed of a sun grown wrapper harvested in Las Marias farm, located in the region of Namaja in Estela, Nicaragua, owned and operated by the Garcia Family.
This cigar is blended with several Cuban tobacco seeds, making it smooth and creamy. It starts with the signature My Father spice and has a rich cocoa flavor. It produces a beautiful white ash giving it a great finish.
Cuba + Nicaragua = Cigar Perfection a.k.a -->Flor del las Antillas Toro
