MY FATHER CIGARS EL CENTURION H-2K-CT CORONA BOX-PRESSED
My Father Cigars are expertly crafted by the Garcia Family. Jose Pepin Garcia is known for blending some of the highest rated cigars and is considered to be a legend in the cigar industry.
This blend comes as an extension to the very popular My Father El Centurion line. It features a beautiful hybrid sun-grown Habano 2000 wrapper from the Connecticut River Valley, United States; hence, the name H-2K-CT.
Length: 5 1/2 inch
Wrapper: US Connecticut hybrid H-2K-CT
Body: Medium – Low Full
When holding the H-2K-CT, you notice how well the wrapper has matured in the box-pressed form. It has a very nice triple cap, a well packed foot, and the wrapper is very visually appealing, showing a little oil and minimal veins. I have had this particular cigar stashed away for approximately four months, so I figured it was time to give it a go.
00:01. The spicy pepper hits right away, with notes of hay on the intake draw and fruit after the smoke has been exhaled. The aroma is very floral and pleasing. This particular Centurion’s draw requires some effort; however, it’s not overly displeasing.
00:15. Pepper is still present, but not at all over powering. Notes of hay, toasted nuts, and cherries pour onto the palate now. The draw has relaxed, providing lots of smoke when exhaling.
00:30. The taste of fruit and hay are most notable now. The peppery spice has backed off. The burn has been extremely consistent, and the draw has remained relaxed. The first ash held for about 18 minutes before falling off.
00:45. Notes have blended, still holding on the the flavor of hay and there are more citrusy fruit notes which cross the palate. Pepper spice is present, but mellowed. The draw continues to be good and the burn is even.
01:00. Coming to a close, the pepper has returned and the draw has tightened up a little, but is manageable. The notes of hay are more pronounced and the fruity, citrusy notes on the palate are fading.
Despite the very slight issues with the draw, the Centurion H-2K-CT offers an amazing amount of flavor to enjoy. The look, feel, and craftsmanship from the people at My Father Cigars is great. Once you pick up a My Father Cigars Centurion H-2K-CT, you know you are going to be in for a great experience. I give the El Centurion H-2K-CT Corona Box-Pressed a score of 90.
