My Father Cigars Event – Paradise Cigarz

Written By: Boston Jimmie - Jun• 21•14

This past Friday I attended the My Father  Cigars event hosted by Paradize Cigarz in Rockledge Florida. You have heard me talk about Paradise Cigarz in the past and as expected Brook and his wife Theresa  put on an outstanding event.


Besides the fact that one of my favorite cigar representatives, Joaquin Saladrigan was there from My Father Cigars, Inc. Brook also had a fantastic 2 piece band (acoustic guitar and drums)  known as Next of Kin (NOK). They belted out some fine tunes ranging from the 70′s to today and entertained us for hours as we enjoyed our sticks and libations.



Joaquin introduced us to the newest lineup in the My Father Cigars collection; the La Antiguedad which is Spanish for The Antiquity. This fine stick is blended with filler tobaccos from three areas in Nicaragua all on farms privately owned by the Garcia family. Joaguin explained that everything is grown by the Garcia family except the wrapper which is Ecuadoran Habano leaf. The La Antigedad is a box pressed cigar and comes in 5 vitolas:

  • 5 1/4 by 52 Robusto
  • 5 5/8 by 55 Toro
  • 6 3/8 by 47 Corona Grande
  • 7 by 56 Super Toro
  • 6 by 60 Toro Gordo

I sampled the Super Toro and have to say it was a deliciously smooth smoke with a buttery start combined with gentle spice throughout, notes of coffee and some citrus. I purchased a box of Toros which landed me a 3-pack of My Father Cigars Special-S cigars which are based on the company’s very-limited 2007 release El Centurion.  After I smoke one of those I will have a review  on it very soon along with a review of the La Antiguedad when I crack open the box of Toros.

Well the band played on and all the brothers and sisters of the leaf enjoyed their smokes, drinks, and NOK, while Brook started to raffle off some nifty prizes. Every one I spoke with had a grand time and even some friends I have not seen since my 3 month trip to Detroit came out. We caught up on stories and smoked My Father Cigars throughout the night.

Before we departed, Joaquin showed us his latest tattoo – a true testament of his loyalty to My Father Cigars.


He also showed us his other tats.


All in all this was an outstanding event, but again, I expected nothing less from My Father Cigars and the Paradise Cigarz family.

If you got’em smoke’em if not the get’em.
