⊗ Introducing the Flor de las Antillas, the first entirely box-pressed line from My Father cigars. Meaning ‘Flower of the Antilles’, the Flor de las Antillas represents Cuba, the largest island in the Greater Antilles islands, and home to the Garcia family’s rich cigar making heritage. Traditionally focused on more full-bodied cigars, Flor de las Antillas ventures into the company’s untapped niche of a true medium-bodied experience.
It didn’t take long for Flor de Las Antillas to catch the eye of critics earning eight 90+ ratings, including #1 Cigar of the Year honors and a 96-point score in the process, which noted: “Delicious from the first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down.”
⊗ Nicaragua’s venerable Garcia family released the Flor de Las Antillas brand in May 2012 using a variety of Nicaraguan tobaccos, their trademark double binders and a wrapper leaf grown in the open sunlight. They named the brand for Cuba, the largest of the Antilles Islands, which are called Antillas in their native Spanish. The Toro size was named Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year in 2012, and the company released a Maduro version of the brand in 2016. Flor de Las Antillas are distributed by the Garcia’s My Father Cigars Inc. and rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
