I’ve been meaning to review the La Dueña by My Father Cigars since they started hitting shelves back in August. The usual suspects (work, school, family) have kept me pretty busy but after my quick little review of La Dueña last week on Kiss My Radio I felt it was time to knock it out. By now most of you know the story of La Dueña. Blended by Pete Johnson for Janny Garcia of My Father Cigars and is described as being a mix of two other Pete Johnson blends, La Riqueza and La Casita Criolla. Available in five sizes featuring a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf and Nicaraguan tobacco for both the binder and the filler.
Video runs close to seven minutes and La Dueña really shines in the petite lancero size. A smooth and refined syrupy texture coats your palate with a wonderful assortment of dark earthy flavors like a semi-sweet chocolate. Add a little bit of a nutmeg type spice to the mix and La Dueña brings to the table the best that La Riqueza and La Casita Criolla have to offer in a balanced, mature fashion. Its a winner.
