My Father Shipping New Flor de las Antillas
G. Clay Whittaker
Posted: April 4, 2012
My Father Cigars is paying tribute to the Cuban heritage of cigars with their new Flor de las Antillas line. Each part of the project, from the seed to the vintage artwork, is a tip of the hat to Cuba, the largest of the Greater Antilles islands.
“The name was chosen to honor Cuba, which has always been referred to as the flower of the Antilles,” said vice president of sales José Ortega.
The box-pressed Flor de las Antillas (the Spanish spelling) is a Nicaraguan puro with a sun-grown wrapper leaf. My Father Cigars says the cigar is blended with several Cuban-seed tobaccos. And this new Garcia family creation is packaged with artwork from the early 20th century that has been enhanced for this new blend.
Flor de las Antillas will come in four sizes: Robusto (5 by 50), Belicoso (5 1/2 by 52), Toro (6 by 52) and Toro Gordo (6 1/2 by 56). The cigars will be packaged in boxes of 20, and suggested retail prices will be between $6.60 and $8.70 per stick.
My Father Cigars says they’ll begin shipping to retailers late next week, so they’ll start appearing in humidors this month.
The cigars are rolled in Estelí, Nicaragua, at My Father Cigars S.A., which is owned and operated by the Garcia family, who were born in Cuba.
