A Steemit Dtube original video. This evening’s puff review is the Flor De Las Antillas by My Father Cigars.
Introduced by the renowned Garcia family in 2012, this My Father line quickly took the cigar world by storm as its Toro was awarded Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year.
Vitola: Robusto (5x50)
Prelight scent of sweet and pungent tobacco. As always, a perfect draw with a small cut.
Flavor and Smoke
After toasting and lighting, I am right away greeted by a slight citrus floral note, with a very short finish of cocoa and coconut. The smoke coming from my FDLA is cloudy and creamy, even a full retrohale is very smooth.
I am not picking up any amount of spice, at least not yet. I also don’t feel like it is a missing flavor, what is here works together beautifully.
A slight cedar note is making itself known, to my delight, it stays that way. I am not a fan of large amounts of cedar nuances.
Incoming is a note of roasted coffee and hazelnut here at the midway point.
Towards the final third, The Flor De Las is transitioning to a darker flavor profile. Chocolate Espresso bean is the dominant note, however I can still pick up most of the previous nuances, albeit ever so slight.
The transition to a darker cigar is an enjoyable complexity to the FDLA, it is almost like two cigars in one. A creamy mild smoke, followed by a dark full bodied one. Even the retrohale has become more stout.
I really enjoy the Flor De Las Antillas by My Father Cigars. I have smoked a bunch, and I do not recall having a bad experience. They are consistent in flavor, smooth smoke, A+ construction, and satisfaction. If you haven't tried one yet, I cannot reccomend them enough. The Flor De Las Antillas appeals to most cigar smokers.
