I picked up the new Cigar Snob magazine today and was flipping through it and noticed both Janny Garcia's and Jaime Garcia's favorite cigar is the My Father No. 1. I love the My Father line, the lancero being my favorite, but the No. 1 my second, so, after reading that the No. 1 was their favorite, I was influenced to pick one up and smoke it.
The My Father No. 1 is fantastic. I used to smoke these a lot when they first came out and now smoke them from time to time. It's like visiting a friend you haven't seen in a while. You remember why you enjoy their time so much. The cigar is full-bodied with a medium to full strength. Slightly spicy through the nose, I love that little kick. The smoke is slightly dry, but just right, with rich earthy tones and loads of cedar notes. A complex, excellently made cigar that makes it one of the best cigars I smoke on a regular basis.
