My Father Flor de las Antillas Toro Cigar Review
This 6×52 2012 Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year features a dark brown slightly mottled velvety textured wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a light even pack, quad cap and rich hay and chocolate aroma. First light reveals a very soft, smooth sweet slightly creamy tobacco with a mild-medium body followed by a short clean finish with a nice little pepper and sweet spice lingering. The first third continues the same combo of flavors just ramping up the body to a solid medium, bringing the tobacco flavors to the forefront and lingering through the finish more. Starting the 2nd third, flavors transition again bringing body to a medium-full with a big thick creamy flavor and texture along with a smooth nuttiness on the draw. The finish is fuller and longer cutting back the spice a bit, holding some of the smooth cream flavor. Starting the last third, flavors shift a bit bringing in a nutmeg like flavor on the draw, still almost full bodied and smooth, with a mellower finish of just a warm nut. Ending at 1:10 the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to viewer Scott Hill for generously sending this in for review!
