Flor de Las Antillas Cigars Now In Toro Grande


Shop Now Flor de las Antillas Toro Grande

In May of 2012, My Father Cigars launched Flor de Las Antillas cigars- an entirely box-pressed line of cigars. It was immediately recognized as an excellent cigar; it was honored as “Number One Cigar of the Year and praised by critics. My Father Cigars has only improved the already popular line with a new size.

The new size of Flor de Las Antillas, Toro Grande, was released at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show. It’s box-pressed like all of the other cigars in the line and is 6 x 60. There are four other sizes of this cigar available.

Named after the largest of the Greater Antilles Islands, Cuba, Flor de Las Antillas cigars were made to honor the birthplace of the Garcia family of My Father Cigars. In order to live up to its name, the cigar is made with the highest quality and is loaded with flavor.

Flor de Las Antillas cigars aren’t full-bodied like most of the Garcia family’s cigars. Instead, it’s medium-bodied. Featuring a Sun Grown Nicaraguan wrapper, the cigar also has Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder. The result is a flavorful cigar that stays balanced and smooth as you smoke it. You don’t have to take my word for it- the cigar has eight ratings higher than 90 and earned one score of 96.


You can get the Flor de Las Antillas cigar for the best online prices from Cuenca Cigars. Try the brand new Toro Grande and find out what all the fuss is about.

Padrón Cigars Looks To Expand Its Base

For 50 years, Padrón Cigars has been known for high quality, box-pressed and full-bodied cigars. Now, the Padrón family has changed things up. With the launch of Padrón Damaso, the cigar producer now has a mild to medium-bodied cigar with a Connecticut seed wrapper from Ecuador and a round shape. They even create the cigar in a new factory located in the main Padrón factory complex.

You don’t see cigar makers recreating themselves like this too often. Cigar Afficiando’s David Savona asked Jorge Padrón why he changed so much with this cigar, and Padrón responded, “We want to give more people the chance to try Padrón cigars.” “Hopefully we can get more people to try a Padrón product - some that may not otherwise have tried one; people that prefer milder cigars. And we can bring them into the Padrón family little by little.”

Although there are many differences between Padrón Damaso cigars and other Padrón cigars, the quality is one thing that has not changed. By “focusing on the quality, focusing on the taste,” Padrón ensured that no corners were cut in the production of Damaso. He also feels that, “It's not a mild, mild cigar. It's got some flavor to it. It's not a one-dimensional product. It does taste like tobacco. It has characteristics that you would expect from a Padrón.”


For the lowest online prices, you can buy them from Cuenca Cigars. The Padrón Damaso comes in four different sizes. Try one for yourself and experience the Padrón quality,

Murcielago Cigars Are Back

When Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega owned United Tobacco/EO Brands in 2009, they worked with the Garcia Family to create the Murcielago cigar brand. Unfortunately, the brand didn’t last. Espinosa and Ortega split and the Garcia family was left with the blend. Espinosa was given rights to the Murcielago name, but couldn’t continue to make the cigars without having the blend.

Espinosa didn’t forget about the Murcielago Cigars brand. He worked with a former employee of the Garcia family named Amilcar Perez-Castro. Perez-Castro had worked at the My Father Factory when the brand was originally produced, and used his knowledge to reverse engineer the Murcielago Cigars blend.

At the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, Espinosa Cigars debuted the new Murcielago cigar. It has a new packaging a presentation, but not much else has changed. It has a Mexican San Andres wrapper with binders and fillers from Nicaragua, just like the original. However, unlike the original it only comes in three sizes.


You can buy Murcielago cigars in boxes of 20 in Noir, La Lune or Nocturne sizes. Cuenca Cigars has them for the best online prices.
