My Father - Flor de las Antillas - Toro
Wrapper: Sun grown
Shape: box pressed
Ring size: 52
Approx. cost: $9
Bdawg says: A light brown speckly, weather looking sun grown wrapper. The draw is easy producing a powder white, tight, long ash. The flavor is a nice combination of pepper and cream. Each puff starts out peppery (making you think that this might be a harsh cigar) but then it finishes creamy and ever so slightly sweet with no harshness at all. The burn was slow and even.
I enjoyed this cigar with a Brooklyn Brown on an outside patio at The Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth, TX. Kudos to Ft. Worth...still a cigar friendly town!
