I have not seen this cigar in a few years, and I got this one from Nestor Miranda at one of the Intertabac trade shows five or six years ago. The cigar, which was released in 2010 in the USA is made at the My Father Cigars factory in Nicaragua and the cigar has Dominican and Nicaraguan both in the filler as in the binder, as the cigar has a double binder. The wrapper is Nicaraguan Corojo.
Nestor Miranda is the founder and owner of Miami Cigar & Co, a Miami based company and I think that the name and ring design were inspired by Miami’s most iconic area: Miami Beach! Even though it’s officially another town as Miami, most see it as part of Miami. And Miami Beach is famous for it’s art deco scenery, the hotels, the art, it all comes from the Art Deco area and a lot of details are still seen on the streets.
The wrapper is bitter chocolate brown with some lighter smears, a thin vein runs over it. The wrapper is a looker. The ring is typical art deco style, pastel green, red, art deco silver letters. It fits the theme. The cigar looks and feels good and has a strong leather aroma.
I sliced a thin part of the cap off. The cold draw is great, I taste tea and raisin. After lighting I taste earthy flavor and coffee. After half an inch I taste earth with spices and a very faint cocoa. After a third the cigar has a woody base flavor with spices and a little pepper. Halfway the pepper is replaced by cinnamon. Later a flavor best described as raw carrot shows up.
The draw is great. The white smoke is pretty full and the burn is good. The ash is medium dark and not very firm. The cigar is medium full bodied and flavored. The smoke time is an hour and forty five minutes.
Would I buy this cigar again? If I can find them.
