My Father #2 belicoso

I’m not gonna tell the the story of the “my father” blend again, I guess by now everybody knows that it is a tribute from Jaime Garcia for his father Jose ‘Don Pepin’ Garcia. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro with a rosado wrapper and is made at the My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The rosado wrapper looks nice, chocolate brown color with just a few minor veins. The top of the belicoso is quite round. The band is detailed and awesome. Once I remove the cellophane I smell a very strong barnyard aroma. The construction feels great and the predraw is fine. I discover raisins in the predraw and the aftertaste is peppery. The cigar has a length of 5½ inch with a 54 ring.

I taste a full flavored spicy coffee with that signature Pepin twang. After half an inch I also get some wood on the background. An inch later the pepper decreases in strength, the wood becomes the main flavor with the coffee on the background. At ⅓ I can also taste herbal flavors and some sweetness.

The sweetness disappears as quickly as it showed up and I only taste wood and herbs. The herbs slowly gain power, with a hint of pepper and some wood on the background. The cigar slowly becomes more spicy and more peppery. Near the grande finale the wood and herbal mix gets stronger and the aftertaste is a black pepper flavor.

The smoke time of this cigar is about 95 minutes and during that time I got a lot of smoke, that was reasonably thick. The firm ash has a pepper and salt color. The draw and burn are good. There is a lot of build up in this full flavored, full bodied cigar because I got a huge flame when I purged. After finishing the cigar I was a little light headed, guess I had a light vitamin N overdose.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, not a whole box, but a single every now and then.
