Fonseca Cosacos by My Father Cigars

COVID-19 Day 240:
Today I sparked this Vitola of the Fonseca Cosacos by My Father Cigars a Don Pepin & Jamie Garcia blend with its Nicaraguan Corojo 99 wrapper for the First-Time today. I was curious to see if the flavor-delivering draw is as smooth and inviting as it’s larger sister in the 5.25 x 52, Robusto… and it delivered.

For the past year or so, I’ve been favoring “those” cigars that were typically deeper in Body and Strength, but lately, I’ve grown an appreciation for some of the more nuanced blends of the Corojo and Habano tobaccos… that is depending on who is blending them. The My Father Cigars interpretation of the “Classic” Fonseca of yesteryear hit the spot with me in both Vitolas as I found these to be fully enjoyable and engaging.

Of course, being a Don Pepin creation I did expect and it got delivered Pepin’s trademark pepper spice especially on the retrohale and it was welcomed along with sweet floral notes followed by earthy leather tobacco flavors… this is a winner for me and I’ll be seeking out more of this blend in the “new” Fonseca by My Father Cigars.
