It’s always been interesting to me learning how and why cigars are named what they’re named. Over the years we’ve seen lots of Don this and Don that, a huge amount of numbers incorporated in names and very unusual “out of the box” ones. Even our own Time Warp cigars have a reason for their particular name. In this chat with Joaquin, he tells us how Pepin chose the Flor de las Antillas name for this latest cigar blend from My Father Cigars.
The Antilles islands form the larger part of the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. The group of islands that are considered part of the “Greater Antilles” are Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamiaica, Puerto Rico and the Cayman Islands. Below is a photo of the Flor de las Antillas cigars and the old style artwork chosen for the boxes and bands.
