The My Father Flor de las Antillas Toro received Cigar Aficionados 2012 No.1 Cigar of the Year award. This is one of the only no.1 cigars in recent memory that has been readily available and the quality has remained consistent. All to often cigars receive this award and are not able to maintain a consistent flavor and quality profile due to tobacco shortages. Substituting a leaf here or there can make a huge difference in the taste.
