My Father No. 1
5 1/4 x 52 - Natural - Box of 23
My Father cigars were introduced in 2008 by Jaime Garcia, son of the renowned Don Jose Pepin Garcia, at Jaime's My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. These full-bodied cigars contain Nicaraguan longfillers and a hybrid Ecuadorian Habano Rosado/Criollo wrapper. The smoke's initial crack of pepper rounds out to reveal a complex brew of spice, wood, coffee, and a kiss of caramelized sweetness. If you thought his father made great cigars, wait til you try Jaime's. A must-smoke!
Beautifully constructed. Perfect burn, perfect draw. Nice aroma. Now the bad news. This cigar is a huge disappointment. It s a smooth smoke but there s nothing there. Very dry on the palate with no complexity at all. I had to give high ratings on everything but taste but don t be fooled. There are far better cigars available at a much better price. Even if it was priced the same as a run of the mill hoyo de monterey I would smoke the hoyo.
During the first third the flavor were jumping all over while never really taking a stand. There was a little cocoa, a little cedar, a little wood, but before you take another puff they re gone... The drying tobacco finally settled around the midpoint, with a medium body and very soft notes on the palate, and occasional flavors of cocoa and bitter chocolate. Sweet mint then started building up on the retrohale, reaching the sweet spot around the nub. In retrospect, I think this medium to full-bodied cigar would be best enjoyed on a warm evening. 89-90 points
This is the worst.....lol. I cant even get through it. This is hands down the best of the best. I lit this beauty up expecting something good and what I got was a cigar that made me sit down and simply enjoy everything about it.
My Father No. 1 has been my favorite cigar for a few years now. I always have some in the humidor, as my goto stable. It's spice, wood, coffee flavors are a blend of perfection. For me, it is the perfect size for an after dinner cigar. It has great balance and draws wonderfully!
