"Formidable stick, but overhyped"
I really wanted to love this stick, mainly because the name sounds cool and it looks good in a humidor, but also because it got rave reviews on how chocolately it is. And I love chocolate notes.
As expected, it s smooth, creamy, chocolately and peppery, excellent draw. But it s like, too smooth. Maybe if the wrapper was sun grown, it would have been perfect. I was like forget it I m just gonna sit back and enjoy how smooth and creamy this is, but then 2/3 s down the nicotine started to get way too strong.
I don t know if my palate isn t refined enough to enjoy this fully, or if I just prefer bolder flavor, but this one was a miss for me. No doubt this is some premium tobacco, and I could see how others could dig this. Hopefully I ll like it more after aging it for awhile.
Still, My Father, The Judge is such a cool name that I wish I could ve said was in my top 5.

"Big Ring, Big Flavor = Perfect"
I do not normally like bigger cigars but I wanted the robusto shape, this 60 ring gauge was a full on flavor bomb from start to finish. It had a familiar peppery font forward cigar but also had some great coca and nutty smoothness to it. I fully enjoyed this cigar and will be ordering more of the Garcia greats!!
