Cigar Aficionado 2018 #2 Cigar Of The Year - Rated 95

 

My Father La Opulencia Toro is among the finest cigars offered by Don Pepin and My Father Cigars down in Nicaragua. Making its debut in 2017 and storming into the world of cigars in full force, La Opulencia has garnered boatloads of positive attention and is quickly becoming a favorite among loyal My Father fanatics. It is, in essence, a box-pressed extension to the world-renowned My Father brand, but is tweaked just enough to be “different.” As for the blend, La Opulencia consists of a bold, complex core of Nicaraguan long fillers, a double Nicaraguan binder (Corojo and Criollo), and a gorgeous Mexican Rosado Oscuro wrapper leaf. Though the recipe seems simple, the end result is a work of art that has already earned multiple 90+ ratings, including a more-than-respectable 95 in Cigar Aficionado. 

 

Expertly rolled and beautifully box-pressed, La Opulencia gleams with natural oils and flaunts a luxurious marbled appearance. The hand-crafted vitolas come elegantly double-banded and sport a green ribbon at the foot. An impeccable level of construction paired with just the right amount of press gives La Opulencia an easy draw, making for massive smoke production and a smooth, crisp burn. A dry puff lends the spicy note of cinnamon that My Father cigars have come to be known for. At first light, the palate is greeted by Don Pepin’s signature pepper blast, yet in the case of La Opulencia, it’s far from overwhelming. The initial white pepper soon turns earthy and creamy, evolving into a deep, rich profile of spice, sweet tobacco, and bakers’ spices. On the finish, a spicy cayenne note tingles the nose as a burst of nutmeg flavor and a hint of cocoa follow. There is also a faint mix of coffee and cedar lingering throughout, making for a delightful multi-layered experience. La Opulencia resides on the heavy end of medium-full-bodied, an interesting contrast to the powerhouse that is the original My Father. From first light to final puff, it’s clear that La Opulencia was blended with the most sincere connoisseurs in mind.

 

Only the most seasoned aficionados will truly appreciate the immaculate complexity and superb quality offered by My Father La Opulencia. Similar to My Father masterpieces such as Flor de Las Antillas and Le Bijou 1922, La Opulencia seems to be on a fast track to the top, putting less emphasis on potency and focusing on satisfying cigar enthusiasts with a delicious flavor profile and layer upon layer of mind-numbing complexity. La Opulencia comes in boxes of 20 and is offered in 6 luxurious regular production sizes. The hefty Toro is 6” x 54 and offers a great way to cap off an eventful evening. Medium-full-bodied, La Opulencia pairs well with scotch, bourbon, or dark rum, but is not a bad match with creamy coffee or even a cup of espresso after dinner. “La Opulencia” literally translates to “The Opulent,” and how appropriate of a name for such a sophisticated cigar! Whether you’re a long-time My Father fan or just in the market for the next big thing, My Father La Opulencia Toro is without a doubt the cigar you’ve been waiting for.
