Cigar Review: My Father #5 Toro
I always get excited about trying new cigars, especially from brands I know I already like. Today I'm enjoying the My Father #5, a natural cigar with bold flavors.
This cigar has a tan, leathery wrapper, and wow, this cigar is dense! After lighting the #5, the burn caused a few tiny cracks at the foot which soon dissolved into a near perfect burn. Flavors of wheaty grass and nuts are smooth yet bold, and I'm excited to enjoy this cigar!
Line: Natural, #5
Size: 6 x 56
Cut: Double punch
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Rosado/Criollo hybrid
Learn About This Cigar
Despite a near-perfect burn, the My Father #5 was plagued by draw issues. As you'll see in the video review, I pulled stem after stem out of the cigar just so I could smoke it. In the second half of the cigar, the flavors became very harsh.
While I have mixed feelings about this cigar, I will admit that the bad does not outweigh the good. But, had the leaf stems not (basically) clogged this cigar up, it would have been much better. Because I didn't love it, but also because I didn't hate it and would smoke it again, the My Father #5 earns a low CigarScore of 3.
