A. Flores 1975 Serie Privada Capa Habano Cigar Review

This 5×52 box pressed stick features a very soft and suple oily smooth tan wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a light pack, what appears to be a quintuple cap and a rich cedar aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good smoke output, showing flavors of a smooth creamy textured sweet wood and tobacco with a pepper zing showing at the end of the long finish. The first third changes very little from the first light, just opening up the draw a bit. It burns very slowly, only moving an inch in the first 20 minutes. 50 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the ash is still holding on, construction is flawless and flavors remain exactly the same with no strength, just medium-full body. Ending at 1:30 with an inch remaining the whole stick proved to be consistent all the way down in flavors. This is set to debut in August 2012 at the IPCPR show.

    I’ve rarely been disappointed by any of Abe’s blends. In fact, watching this inspired me to light up a Flores y Rodriguez Maduro I picked up last week. I look forward to the new releases. Thanks!

      What did you think of your Flores Y Rodriguez?

      • JJO

        Enjoyed it a lot. Not terribly complex, but great flavors and and construction, medium+ body. Great value too, although I understand that the current pricing is an “introductory” thing. I will definitely pick up more.

          I loved it!!! in my opinion it was one of those rare cigars that brought out the flavor right from first light, i agree it was the same flavor all the way through…..but i did extremely enjoy those particular flavors! As soon as i can get my hands on some more whether it be online or through my local shop im going to do so!

            Oh, and it did have a tight draw to start i cut the cap three times lol, but it opened up later for perfect smoke production!

    Where can I purchase an A. Flores stick? The on-line dealers don’t list A. Flores? Love your reviews!

    • JJO

      As Bryan stated above, they won’t be released until the IPCPR show next month, but you can always get an idea of what to expect by getting a Pinar del Rio cigar. Same company.

    In your opinion. What’s the advantage/ disadvantage to a double triple or quintuple cap?

      Less chance of unraveling after cutting. Neater
