If you enjoy cigars that are full of flavor, you will likely enjoy the El Hijo. The first third is a pleasant mixture of earthy, sweet, and nutty flavors. While the first third is rather mild, things go up a notch in the second third, as pepper is introduced. The pepper won’t knock your socks off, but it definitely lets you know that it’s there. Some cedar and tobacco are also present here. The final third rounds things out with leather and tasty cocoa. I’d consider the cigar to be in the full-bodied category, rather than medium-full.

Without question, the My Father El Hijo is a quality cigar. I enjoyed its unique appearance and solid construction. The flavors are also meant that there was never a dull moment. I’d recommend it to those who love full-flavored and full-bodied cigars. As for beginners, the El Hijo is too strong. The cigar comes in packs of five or 15. A single averages out to around $9 to $10 each, so it’s not cheap. With that being said, you should at least pick one up to give it a try. I think this is one case where you definitely get what you pay for.

The My Father El Hijo earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Rocky Patel Royal Vintage Robusto

The Rocky Patel Vintage line enjoyed so much success that the brand decided to follow it up with a limited edition extension called the Royal Vintage. The cigar is said to be similar to the original, but differs slightly to carve its own unique path. I’ve enjoyed several Rocky Patel smokes in the past, so I am expecting big things out of this Royal Vintage Robusto I’m about to light up. Hopefully it won’t let me down.

The Royal Vintage Robusto measures 5 ½ x 50. The line also comes in the following sizes: the 6 x 60 Sixty, 6 1/8 x 52 Torpedo, 6 ½ x 50 Toro, and 7 1/8 x 48 Churchill. The cigar’s interior consists of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos. An aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper coats the exterior. Strength-wise, the Royal Vintage is considered to be medium to full-bodied.
