What should you do when you hit a walk off grand slam? Take a victory lap, of course!
The My Father Flor de las Antillas Maduro is a Maduro-wrapped variation on the beloved 2012 Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year winning cigar. The original version featured a Nicaraguan sun grown wrapper and pulled in an incredible 96 rating from some of the world’s most discriminating judges. The Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper changes the flavor profile in some highly enjoyable ways, taking a group of light flavors and injecting spice and chocolate notes that make the Flor de las Antillas Maduro a cigar to remember.
The My Father team reports that the interior blend still features a double binder of Nicaraguan tobacco, but that the exact leaves chosen had to be adjusted to account for the effect of the maduro wrapper. This just proves how much care goes into each My Father cigar blend, and how much faith they have in the blending team’s skills. Many companies would be terrified to touch a Cigar of the Year winning cigar for fear of ruining the magic, but the Garcias have proven time and time again that they know exactly what they’re doing.
For those who are wondering, Flor de las Antillas is another name for the island of Cuba, the “Flower of the Antilles.” While the word isn’t used much in the U.S., the “Antilles” is another name for the Caribbean Islands. This cigar celebrates the traditions of Cuban cigar making, of which Don Pepin Garcia (the company founder) is a certified master. Box pressed in the classic style, it’s a superb, long lasting smoke with incomparable flavors, and a welcome twist on one of the world’s best cigars.
