Cigar Review: My Father La Opulencia
It's no secret that My Father has become one of my favorite cigar brands. Everyone My Father cigar I've reviewed has earned a CigarScore of 4 or 5. So, when I picked up the My Father La Opulencia, my expectations were very high.
The box-pressed cigar had a semi-dry wrapper. And, something to note, the two labels were slightly off-centered – a weird thing to notice, but an odd thing from such a premium cigar from a wonderful brand. The draw is smooth, the burn is consistent, and the flavors are pretty good, though not as good as the oily-rich Le Bijou 1922.
Line: La Opulencia
Size: 6 x 54
Wrapper: Mexican Rosado Oscuro
Learn About This Cigar
The My Father La Opulencia is a good cigar, but not as good as the El Centurion or Le Bijou 1922. The flavors aren't as delicious and the cigar started to get hot with about 3 inches left. That said, I was able to smoke it for quite a while, the burn was very even, and the construction of the cigar was top notch.
However, a hot smoke with only fair flavors give this near $16 cigar a surprising CigarScore of 3 – my lowest-rated My Father to date.
