Blind Cigar Review: My Father | Fonseca Cedros

“Overall, this was a VERY consistent flavored stick throughout the entire experience. Omnipresent notes of leather exist the whole time, which minor deviations throughout, most notably the nutty presence at the end, which was yum. Burn and construction were spots on the entire time without any flaws at all while the draw slightly learned on the loose side. Not a bad stick, one of the better ones I’ve had lately, however, it didn’t overly impress me and was a slightly better for an average cigar on the market today.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“Give me another one of these! This was a solid stick with flavors that I rather enjoy. The middle third was probably the weak spot on this cigar where flavors kind of drowned in themselves and the marshmallow puff. I’m not going to say that portion of the cigar was bad, but it was not the highlight. Fortunately, there’s plenty of other things going on in this cigar to make the downsides forgettable. ” -Isaac M.
