When My Father Cigars released their first completely box-pressed line of cigars with Flor de Las Antillas, no one could have guessed it would be so successful. Honored as the “2012 Cigar of the year - Number One”, the line did not disappointed the consumers. Now, My Father has made the line even better with the addition of a new cigar size.
The new size of Flor de Las Antillas was launched at the 2015 IPCPR convention. Known as the Toro Grande, this size is box-pressed like the others and is 6x60. It marks the fifth size in the collection.
The Flor de Las Antillas cigar was named to represent Cuba - the largest of the Greater Antilles Islands. The Garcia's owners of My Father Cigars Company located in Esteli, Nicaragua and that has a strong tie with cigar-making in Cuba, and this cigar has more than enough quality and flavor to honor that heritage.
Unlike the majority of My Father’s cigars, Flor de Las Antillas cigars are medium-bodied. With a wrapper from Nicaragua all sun-grown and long fillers and binders from Nicaraguan as well, this cigar is balanced and smooth. It’s extremely flavorful, which is only one of the many reasons it earned a score of 96 and had eight ratings over 90.
