My Father La Opulencia Corona

Last night's cigar was the My Father La Opulencia Corona (5 x 46). It looks like this is available online for around $8, without any discounts. I was looking forward to this one since I have been reading a lot of praise for My Father cigars.

It has a Mexican Rosado wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar is dark brown with minimal veins.



Prelight, I get a little sweet tobacco, a little spice, and a lot of I can't wait for this! The prelight draw is a little tight, but never becomes an issue when lit.

Where the Casa Magna started off medium-bodied and ramped up over time, the My Father started off full bodied and stayed that way.

From the beginning, I got a nice amount of thick smooth smoke that had a bit of spice to it. The smoke had a smoothness, despite the spice, that stood out against recent cigars that I have had.



The ash was mottled grey and hung on for around two inches. Burn was good throughout.

I didn't get a lot of variation from beginning to end, but I enjoyed it all. I think I would pick the smoothness of the My Father over the variation of the Casa Magna. I will seek this one out.
