Cuba is the largest of the Greater Antilles islands. Because of its beauty it has earned the name "Flor de las Antillas”. Originally released in 2012, Flor de las Antillas is medium-to-full bodied, box-pressed cigar, blended with Cuban tobacco seeds by My Father Cigars.
Ranked #1 in the Top 25 Cigars of 2012 by Cigar Aficionado, Flor de las Antillas is a Nicaraguan Puro. The sun grown wrapper is harvested in Las Marias farm in the region of Namanji, in Esteli, Nicaragua, owned and operated by the Garcia family.
Flor de las Antillas Maduro was later released in 2016. The wrapper is Ecuadorian Habano sun grown Oscuro. Sizes include Corona 5-5/8 x 46), Petite Robusto (4-1/2 x 50), Toro (6 x 52), Toro Gordo (6-1/2 x 56), and Torpedo (6-1/8 x 52).
“Flor de las Antillas Maduro, by My Father is a medium-bodied cigar with tasting notes of soft leather, baker’s chocolate, and a raisin sweetness, a great cigar for the first time Maduro smokers. The Antillas Maduro would pair well with coffee, light-bodied liquors, and medium-bodied beers. If you enjoy this cigar you may also like the Hoyo Excalibur Dark Knight and the 8-5-8 Maduro by Arturo Fuente,” writes Matt W of The Cigar Box Indianapolis.
Jose Pepin Garcia was born in Cuba and rolled his first cigar at age 11. Nearly 50 years later, in 2009, Garcia launched My Father Cigars in Nicaragua.
My Father brands are known for distinct combination of strength, richness, and spicy aroma with a heavy finish.
