Smoke With Me - Flor De Las Antillas - A Brief Cigar Review Video

in dtube •  11 months ago

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.

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.

i have tried one or two of this stick....i will agree with you about the smoke smoothness and thick-rich output...i will agree with you on the A+ construction but i will state that i do have my complaints flavor speaking....i was waiting far too more from this cigar and i was a bit disappointed after finishing it...of course this is just my opinion and in my scale the cigar got 6.5 out of 10...


Thanks for your review @funnel! I get it, was it just too mild in flavor for you?


i would take the risk to say 'flat'.... i found my notes saying...first third -nothing much, second third- something seems to move,got some interesting hints of coffee...last third- not as expected....i checked my humidors today and i found that i got one stick in my stock...this means that the cigar is sleeping for over 2 years in the humidor....maybe i'll give it a try to see if something has changed flavor-wise....:))

Thanks for sharing the video will check it out :)


Is that Selina Gomez as your profile picture @blazing 😁

Thanks for the quick video review on another My Father Cigars. Sounds like a stick I could enjoy. Video kept buffering, I'm not sure if it was my ISP, I'll watch again tomorrow at my gf's house. 😎

Cool experience for me.

Cool video

Two cigars in one, huh? I love the cigars that can take you on a little trip as you smoke them.
