Last year My Father joined the whole limited edition hype by creating the My Father limited edition 2010 and this year they released a 6½x52 My Father limited edition 2011. The cigar is made from Nicaraguan tobacco with an hybrid Ecuadorian habano rosado-criollo wrapper. 40 boxes of 12 made in to The Netherlands and the cigars have a fixed price tag of € 18,50 each. In total 60.000 cigars are made.
The cigars are beautiful, the hybrid wrapper has a nice and oily, smooth, chocolate brown with one vein. I smell a medium strong acidic barnyard. The construction is great, just like the predraw. I taste raisin with some pepper.
I taste coffee with a little bit of sweetness, full and mild spicy. After half an inch the flavors change to red pepper, an earthy flavor and wood. After an inch the pepper loses some of its strength. The main flavors are wood with some sweetness and spices. This cigar is subtle for a My Father product.
Halfway I taste a mild pepper, some chocolate and wood with a hint of nutmeg. The nutmeg slowly gets stronger and is the main flavor after two thirds, with a mild herbal aftertaste. Near the end I taste nutmeg and wood with some pepper in the aftertaste.
This cigar lasted me for an hour and fifty minutes. The draw is great and I got a lot of thick smoke. The light colored ash is firm. The burn is fantastic. This cigar is full flavored and full bodied but smooth.
Would I buy this cigar again? I want a few more
