Review based off a couple Cosacos (corona size). The presentation is really appealing with the tissue paper. The cigar is marketed as medium, but I found the body and flavor to be a bit fuller than that. Plenty of pepper spice upfront. If I had to compare it to another MF, it would be the Flor de las Antillas. But maybe more leathery instead of the nutty flavors of the FdlA. Similar sweetness level. Well-balanced. Construction, burn and draw are very good. I suspect this will be a big hit and if you like other My Father cigars, you should definitely give it a try.
My Father Fonseca Cigars
My Father Cigars acquired the Fonseca brand from back in 2019, with the goal to elevate this historic cigar brand with Cuban roots and to establish a strong presence in the U.S. market. It seems anything My Father Cigar touches turns to gold, and the new Fonseca’s are sure to make a splash. These new Fonseca cigars are made at the My Father Cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, and is comprised of all Nicaraguan tobaccos. The cigar blend is highlighted by a shade grown corojo 99’ rosado wrapper, with a rich Nicaraguan core making up the binder and filler tobaccos. A medium bodied profile, that’s rich with flavors of earth and spice, tamed down a bit to pay homage to the classic Fonseca brand which is considered milder of the Cuban brands.
