TAA Exclusive 2014: 6 x 50 (Box-Press)
This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop.
In 2014, My Father Cigars is making two cigars for their 2014 TAA Exclusive Series. One cigar will be the fourth iteration of Tatuaje’s TAA cigar. The other will be one under their flagship My Father line. This isn’t My Father’s first TAA release. In 2011, the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial TAA Edition was released to the TAA by My Father This cigar introduced a box-press toro based on the My Father core one blend.
TFor the most part, this isn’t going to be a radically different cigar than the core My Father line. It is going to deliver the blend’s classic flavors of nuts, cedar, pepper, and some caramel. The strength and body are in the medium to full range except toward the end where both cross into full territory. If you like the My Father blend and you like a box-press this cigar is going to be for you.
While construction is excellent, I did find this was a cigar that could be prone to overdrawing and overheating. It is one to smoke slow and enjoy. It’s worth a box split in my book.
