My Father Cigars is paying tribute to the Cuban heritage of cigars with their new Flor de las Antillas line. Each part of the project, from the seed to the vintage artwork, is a tip of the hat to Cuba, the largest of the Greater Antilles islands.The cigars are rolled in Estel?, Nicaragua, at My Father Cigars S.A., which is owned and operated by the Garcia family, who were born in Cuba. According to vice president of sales Joes Ortega, the name of the cigar was chosen to honor Cuba, which has always been referred to as the flower of the Antilles.
The box-pressed Flor de las Antillas (the Spanish spelling) is a Nicaraguan puro with a sun-grown wrapper leaf. The cigar is blended with several Cuban-seed tobaccos, and this new Garcia family creation is packaged with artwork from the early 20th century that has been enhanced for this new blend. The Flor de las Antillas cigars are a medium-full to full bodied blend that delivers the signature My Father spice with hints of cocoa flavor.
