My Father Cigar’s Flor de las Antillas Maduro captures the essence and style of Cuban-crafted cigars. The well anticipated arrival of the Maduro in April 2016, a follow up to the original was a sheer delight.
The flavor, strength, and body are medium to full. The construction of the dark, oily Maduro Torpedo is fantastic. The aroma of the wrapper has lots of sweet cocoa, wood, and pepper. Take a cool drawl off this cigar and you will find a slightly sweet and sour orange flavor. Upon lighting, the expected, robust quality of a My Father maduro cigar is delivered with lots of spice, earth and chocolatey sweet notes inherent in the retro-hale.
My favorite activity when I smoke is sitting on the front porch or the deck of my shore home and relaxing with a drink. Essentially, when you purchase a cigar you are also buying time to relax. For an hour or two I enjoy some quiet reflection or use the time to read a good book.
