Cigar News: Shore Things Cigars Announces Store Exclusive in Partnership with Crowned Heads

Cigar News: Shore Thing Cigars Announces Store Exclusive in Partnership with Crowned Heads

A delicious medium bodied cigar that leaves a very creamy toasted caramel flavor on your palate. The cigar becomes milder with every inch and burns perfectly under its EPC construction. The Sumatra wrapper has a very natural and oily sheen much like the leather on a baseball glove and has a triple cap. Cuban size, Dominican Quality, and the incredible flavor of Nicaraguan tobaccos.

Personal Cigar Review: My Father Limited Edition 2011

If you're a fan of My Father, this cigar is one that continues to fit into the portfolio nicely. While it probably isn't possible to find any more of these in shops, I'm sure some are still kicking around on the secondary market. It's one I wouldn't mind smoking again as I have a couple more sitting in the humidor.
