Cigar Aficionados No.1 Cigar of the year in 2012 with an outstanding score of 96/100.
Size: Toro 6" x 52
"Pepin Garcia focuses his energies on growing tobacco in Nicaragua, trying various seed varieties. Jaime Garcia is the company's master blender. They released the Flor de Las Antillas brand in May 2012, using a variety of Nicaraguan tobaccos, their trademark double binder and a wrapper leaf grown in the open sunlight. They named the brand for Cuba, the largest of the Antilles Islands, which are called Antillas in their native Spanish.
The standout of the four-size brand is the Toro, which has a gentle, rounded box press and a beautiful and evenly colored wrapper. The smokes are delicious from the first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down. They are classics, 96-point smokes on our 100-point scale.
The Garcias, originally from Cuba have worked long and hard since coming to the United States, coming a long way in a very short time."
