La Antiguedad means antiquity, and this smoke is it - in every sense of the word. Once a Cuban brand, it has been reborn by My Father Cigars as a smooth, medium-full Nicaraguan that is anything but ordinary: the tobaccos are cured no less than 3 1/2 years; it features a double binder of both criollo and corojo; the wrapper is a tasty & dark Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro; the list goes on and on. Buy a box and see why people are raving about this cigar as being one of the next Pepin greats!
Without question, this is a quality cigar. It s construction and burn are stupendous-- I was able to hold on to more than two inches of ash before it finally dropped to the ground. I have only two MINOR quibbles-- first, the draw was a little loose. At some points if felt like sucking air straight through a straw. Second, I would say that it was a little TOO consistent. The flavor was just about the same throughout the cigar. There were no discernible midpoints or finishes. It simply tastes the way it tastes. To some, this may well be advantageous, but I prefer a little more variety in my smokes. Still, however, a very good cigar
