Wild Bill’s Cigar of the Week
We bring you a former #1 Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year for this week’s cigar. Even though it’s been 6 years since this cigar has held the title, it still carries with it a 95-rating from Cigar Aficionado! The Cigar of the Week is the My Father Flor de las Antillas Belicoso!
A truly remarkable cigar, the Flor de las Antillas Belicoso is just another amazing cigar from the Pepin Garcia and his son Jaime. Like Father, like son, Jamie has become just as an influential blender as his world famous father. This cigar is a definite treat and tribute to Cuba, where the Garcia family is from.
Flor de las Antillas Belicoso
The Flor de las Antillas means Flower of the Antilles, which is a tribute to Cuba, the largest island in the Greater Antilles. Not only that, but perhaps what makes this cigar more meaningful to the Garcia family, is that Cuba is also where the Garcia family’s cigar making heritage started.
The all-Nicaraguan blend of tobacco maintains My Father’s standard of quality and provides full-flavored smoking experience. The first thing you’ll notice about this cigar is the shiny Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper that is smooth as silk. This leaf embraces a mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder, to deliver an exceptionally smooth and balanced smoke.
The flavors from the Flor de las Antillas are complex but offer an array of notes from cocoa, pepper, sweet cider, and earth. This cigar is a medium to full-bodied that maintains its smooth character from start to finish. It is a cigar that can be enjoyed anytime of the day!
The Flor de las Antillas comes in four popular sizes. We are featuring the Belicoso, which has a ring gauge of 52 and a length of 5 1/2″.
