Blind Cigar Review: My Father | Fonseca Cedros Score 90%

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)

Blind Cigar Review: My Father | La Gran Oferta Lancero

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There was quite a bit of flavors going on with milk chocolate, wood, coffee, cream, spice and some marshmallow at the very end. The cigar stayed medium until the very final third where the spice kicked it up a notch. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“As ugly as this cigar was, it goes to show that you can’t judge a book by the cover. The flavors were so good. There was complexity, and yet consistent notes that pulled everything together. I would gladly reach for this cigar again. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Cigar News: New El Centurion to have Connecticut Wrapper

The Garcia family, owners of My Father Cigars, has acquired a hybrid wrapper grown in Connecticut and, with it, created a new brand: El Centurion H-2K-CT. Scheduled for release at the IPCPR trade show next month, this will be a spinoff of the core El Centurion line. The new cigar is named after the H-2K-CT Connecticut wrapper type, which the company said is proprietary to El Centurion. But it isn’t a Connecticut wrapper in the usual sense. This isn’t shade grown or broadleaf, but a Cuban-seed strain of tobacco grown in open sunlight and cultivated in the Connecticut River Valley.

Blind Cigar Review: My Father | La Antiguedad Corona Grande

“Overall, the cigar was smoking pretty well in the beginning. There were interesting flavors and a good burn. But the final third really made it hard to give an overall rating, because this may have just been a one off error, and more than likely was.” -Jerad (Cigar Federation)

Blind Cigar Review: My Father | Connecticut Corona Gorda

“Although the wrapper was a little darker than most Connecticuts, I believe this was one. It was medium bodied the whole way through, and had lots of flavors. I really enjoyed this cigar form start to finish. It could be smoked at any time of the day. The quality of the construction and the tobaccos is very high, and I appreciate that. I would definitely buy a box of these.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Quick Cigar Review: My Father | La Antiguedad Robusto

This was a good cigar, better than average. It has some really interesting flavors and unique spices. The too loose draw made the burn go wonky and the cigar get hot towards the end, but I think, knowing the quality of cigars coming out of my father, this is not a normal occurrence. I would definitely smoke this again, but I don’t know if it’s box worthy, maybe a 5er to see how it ages. I give this a personal score of 90.
