The My Father Garcia y Garcia Robusto Deluxe is yet another example of a strong start, but mediocre middle and finish. But this time around, there's more salt on the wound, as it comes at a hefty price point of $30 MSRP.
The My Father La Promesa Toro has some interesting complexity in the first third of cream, baking spices, cocoa, cedar and the trademark My Father pepper. That complexity fades moving into the second third and the experience is fairly average for the remainder of the cigar.
Flavorwise, it was dominantly earth and leather with a great caramel sweetness within the first two thirds, but unfortunately tapering off within the last third. This new blend is definitely worth a try but nothing to go deep on.
I can say the cigar has aged quite well. I enjoyed the overall profile, especially with the spice transitions keeping me engaged the entire, long 3 hours. I think the cigar has a lot more legs left, and aging for another few years won't hurt, and hopefully will improve it.
Being roughly an 8 year old cigar, it held its spice during the test of time. I would happily smoke the rest of my box right now or give it a few more years to further allow the blend to meld together.
