My Father The Judge

My Father The Judge

The My Father The Judge was introduced at the 2016 IPCPR and according to Jose Ortega (VP of Sales for My Father) the name was inspired by a friend of the Garcia Family. The shape of this cigar is something I don’t recall ever seeing, which is a 5X60 boxed pressed they named Grand Robusto. Along with the Grand Robusto there is also a more traditional 6×56 Toro. Each size comes in boxes of 23.

Brand: My Father
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Corojo & Criollo
Filler: Nicaraguan
Strength: Full
Size: 5×60
Price: $12.40

The Wrapper is medium brown with well defined veins. Like many of the cigars produced by My Father, The Judge features a double ban and a colored ribbon, this one being gold, on the foot. There is a sweet tobacco aroma from wrapper with more of the same from the foot. There are earthy and graham cracker flavors from the cold draw. First few puffs are mostly black pepper with a splash of earthiness and cedar.

First Third: There is a ton of pepper everywhere in the mix and the cedar holds on as the secondary flavor. As this first third burns on, the sweet flavor is turning very chocolaty. So far the burn line is all over the place. Just behind the burn line there is quite a bit of oil releasing from the wrapper.

Second Third: There is still a bunch of pepper, but it has mellowed a bit. The cedar is turning to more of an oak flavor. The chocolate is almost entirely gone and replaced with more of an espresso taste. The burn continues to be a big issue, I had to touch it up a few times and each time it started burning uneven again. There is a ton of smoke with each puff.


Final Third: The pepper is even more calm now, but is still present. The woody flavor is transitioning back to cedar. The cigar went out with about an inch and a half left, but upon relighting it burned fine to the end. Toward the nub, the espresso flavor gave way to a burnt coffee taste.

This is a really good cigar if you like a true full bodied power house. The flavors mix and transition well through out the entire stick. There are two things holding this cigar back from a 90+ rating for me, the burn line was never consistent until the very end and the shape of it is really odd. Overall I rate this cigar an 88.
