Default La Antiguedad corona grande

Nice looking smoke. Nice size at 6.5" X 47.

Decent flavor, nice floral aroma. This is one of those weird cigars that smells better than it tastes. Not that it tastes bad, but the My Father factory has certainly put out better cigars. Medium-full "strength". Not too much bite in the nostrils, which is good. Not much depth to the flavor. A bit one-dimensional. A good smoke, but not a great one.

These retail for about $7/stick. I got 3 of them on C-Bid for $6/stick. I won't be getting any more. Not because they're not good, but there are many better cigars in that price range or less.

I agree with your comments. I was expecting more flavor. Maybe it will improve with age, maybe not.

No disagreement here! I like the Flor de Antilles much more.
