My Father El Hijo Cigar Review

This 5.5×52 stick features a dark chocolate wrapper with a soft, buttery satin feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a partial box press, even pack with slight spongy give, a rich oily chocolate and tobacco aroma and a little bit of a shaggy foot. This is the 3rd of 4 installments of Smoke Inn 15th anniversary series microblends. First light reveals a perfect draw with rich thick full bodied flavors of leather, pepper, chocolate, tobacco and an oily pepper finish. The first third comes down to a medium-full body with a good bit of strength kick to boot. Flavors are very silky smooth and oily with chocolate, cocoa, an aged tobacco and touch of pepper. The finish is growing shorter with just a slight oily tobacco and pepper zing. 25 minutes in the 2nd third progresses with a deep earth on the retrohale with creamy chocolate and cocoa flavors on the draw, with a good bit of pepper zing through the finish. 45 minutes in at the end of the 2nd third, flavors shift to a strong coffe flavor while retaining the smooth tobacco and hints of chocolate. The burn evened out to almost razor sharp and the draw is perfect. Ending with an inch left where it got VERY hot, the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Smoke Inn for providing this sample for review!

    Correct pronunciation = Eee-ho
    That sounds like a great cigar. I went to the local shop the other day and bought cigars based on some of your favorites.
    So far so good!
    Keep it up

  • Ah thank you – I’ve butchered worse 😉

    Speaking of favorites, do you have any updates to your favorites list? It’s been about a year since you created the original list.
    Also, maybe you could have two favorites lists–one that is a “no matter the cost” favorites list and one that is “best bang for the buck” favorites list.
    BTW, I’ve been dying to try the SirVin cigars but they seem impossible to find on the internet. The link to the website doesn’t work and even a Google search doesn’t provide any stores that carry them. Any ideas on where to get those cigars?

  • Yeah I’m working on the list…I’ll look in to Sir Vin for you.

    The flavor profiles you described sounds amazing! Definitely going to pick up some! Thanks for the review!
