Wholesale distributor Alliance Cigar recently announced they have become the exclusive distributor for a new line extension to My Father Cigar’ Flor De Las Antillas line. The Flor De Las Antillas DeSocio adds a 5 3/4 x 54 vitola into the lie. Information on this announcement was communicated in the recent summer newsletter of Alliance Cigar.
The DeSocio is one of four retail exclusive vitals recently introduced by My Father Cigars in this line. A Lancero, Toro Grande, and rounded Short Churchill have all been made in 2013
The Flor de las Antillas is a Nicaraguan puro that was released by My Father Cigars in 2012. The box-press robusto cigar scored a 92 on Cigar Coop, and the toro size is well-known for being Cigar Aficionado’s #1 Cigar of the Year for 2012.
