My Father No. 1

One of the most popular ultra premium cigars is the My Father and it’s amazing that we  haven’t reviewed this cigar yet. Well, today is the day I will review one of my favorite smokes of all-time, the My Father No. 1. This natural wrapped Nicaraguan cigar is a thing of beauty! Weighing in at just over 5 inches long with a 52 ring gauge it’s literally the perfect sized cigar. The wrapper is a medium brown/tan and the label is a intricate white, green, pink, red, and gold work of art.

My Father cigar review and rating

This cigar feels beefy in your hands with a firm pack and hefty weight. The pre-light draw does offer a bit more resistance than I normally prefer but the draw ultimately works perfectly with the massive amount of thick satisfying smoke that the My Father cigar will produce. This cigar is complex. Luxurious flavors of exotic spice that shift in your mouth as they float across your palette. The My Father is a full bodied, full strength cigar that should satisfy even the most hardened smoker. As my best buddy Brian says… “this cigar tastes like Christmas”. And while I’m not really sure what Christmas tastes like… I know it’s good.

The burn on the My Father is perfect as you will get a razor sharp burn with a firm ash all the way to the nub and even when you get to the end you wont want to stop. The taste of the tobacco on your tongue is a savory, salty, meaty flavor, that has me loving life with every draw. As you can tell this is clearly one of my favroite cigars, in fact this cigar made our list as one of the top 5 best cigars that don’t orignate from Cuba. Nothing about the My Father is ordinary, the construction, flavors, and strength are all outstanding and its no wonder that these cigars have taken the industry by storm.

      Yes, El Centurion is pretty good… we gave it #5 cigar of the year in 2013.

    Couldn’t wait to light this up after checking out the reviews! Took some time though to check it out pre-light though. Feels solid, and has a little bit of a tough draw to it, which was expected just by the feel of the pack. Lit it up and the initial flavor was a little overpowering. It did not disappoint though! Master Sensei’s write-up is spot on. Its spicy and has the same peppery type taste I’m used to from my pipe tobaccos I love. The flavor got better as I got to the end. Didn’t want to quit this one.

  • Smokin’

    Smoked 1st no.1 in Feb 2013. Source: retail shop in Eugene OR.
    Objective view: From a straight cut. This cigar was flawless in draw, burn, and ash from beginning to end. And I do mean end as I could not bring myself to put this thing down!
    Subjective view: The aroma of this cigar as it burned to be
    sublime. The flavors were savory and balanced, with no harshness, from start to finish and I was able to produce an excellent volume of delicious smoke with little effort (which really adds
    to my enjoyment).
    Appearance: attractive with no flaws; label is spectacular.
    Would I buy this cigar again? I already have.
    Some current faves: RP Decade torp, Dunhill Aged church, SL Oval mad torp.

    Thanks for your review this cigar is a delight to my palate, thick luxurious mouthfuls of semi sweet toasty goodness. Very satisfying.

    I love the My Father Line. My favorite vitola is the #4 Lancero. Just awesome! Huge fan of Lanceros.

  • FawltyTowers

    Looks delicious. Being brand new to the cigar world these reviews are a great way for me to learn the ins and outs. I really appreciate the work you guys do. Thanks!

    • Thank you for the nice comment! The My Father is a fairly strong cigar so if you are new to the hobby be careful because this might make you light-headed. 🙂
