myfathercerv1 The weekend is over, the world is still spinning, and that means we are going to deliver more reviews here on Today's reviews cover one full-bodied smoke and a smoother, medium-bodied selection. Let's take a closer look at the My Father Cedros Deluxe Cervantes and the AVO Maduro No. 2.

My Father Cedros Deluxe Cervantes

Are you a fan of cigars from the legendary Don Pepin Garcia? What about his son, Jaime? He may not have the following of his father, but you can bet that the valuable experience and knowledge Jaime gained under his father's watch has helped him as he tries to follow in his famous footsteps. Jaime Garcia started My Father Cigars in 2008, and the brand has earned some high ratings. For today's review, we will focus on the Cedros Deluxe line, which is said to be packed with flavor. Let's light up the line's Cervantes selection and see if it has what it takes to make it into your humidor.

The Cedros Deluxe Cervantes measures 6 1/2 x 44. It's just one of two sizes in the line, with the other being a 5 5/8 x 46 Eminentes. The cigar's filler and binder are both Nicaraguan, while a special hybrid Ecuadorian Habano Rosado and Criollo wrapper completes the composition. The Cedros Deluxe is handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua at the My Father Cigars factory. Strength-wise, this is considered to be a full-bodied stick.

As I take a look at the Cedros Deluxe Cervantes, I can definitely see that the folks at My Father put a lot of work into its presentation. Whether or not that translates into a great cigar remains to be seen, but the first impression is definitely a positive one. The cigar is basically covered from head to toe. There's a large band near the head that displays the My Father logo in a combination of gold, pink, and red. Just beneath the band is a cedar sheath that covers the bottom half of the cigar. The My Father logo is stamped on the sheath, as is the Cedros Deluxe name. Last, but not least, is a small band at the foot that displays the Cedros Deluxe name once again, just in case you forget what you are smoking. The cigar itself is attractive, starting with the slim and elegant shape. The wrapper has a milk chocolate color and is a tad oily. Only a few minor veins are visible, and the feel of the Cervantes indicates that it's well-packed with tobacco. The triple cap is nicely done as well. Prior to lighting, there's a scent and taste of cedar, which is not much of a surprise.

After gawking at the decorative packaging of the Cedros Deluxe Cervantes and striking it with the lighter, the cigar exhibits decent burn qualities. The draw is good and there's plenty of smoke produced. The ash is on the flaky side and gray in color. A few touch-ups are needed at the halfway point, but that's about it.
