Description My Father Cigars released the original El Centurion back in 2007. These limited edition cigars were said to be the personal blend of Pepin Garcia, the founder of My Father. Since the original release, My Father has made different versions of El Centurion, including the S Special which could only be found at their events. And in 2015 they released the El Centurion H-2K-CT. The year after that it was included in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year.                     Flavors: 
Review: Cigar Aficionado *Top 25 Cigars of the Year 🏆 (2016)*   It isn't quite as dark as Connecticut broadleaf, and it isn't quite as light as Connecticut shade. Lying somewhere in the middle is the El Centurion H-2K-CT Toro, an intensely flavorful cigar with an unusual hybrid wrapper. You can ask the Garcia family exactly who it is that grows the Cuban-seed wrapper on the El Centurion H-2K-CT, but they're not likely to say. We know it comes from somewhere in Connecticut, we know it's a Havana 2000 seed hybrid and we know the wrappers are sungrown. Outside of that, the Garcias aren't talking.El Centurion started as a limited-edition release, but last year it hit the market as a full-fledged spinoff brand from the original with a different blend. The box-pressed H-2K-CT cigars are medium to full bodied and beautifully constructed at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory.
Review: Stogie Guys Once lit, there is some syrup sweetness initially, although it fades as flavors of roasted nuts, leather, and oak dominate this medium-bodied smoke. Towards the final third, some cedar spice emerges along with black coffee notes ... The H-2K-CT brings a lot to the table. It’s balanced and restrained with a nice combination of both sweetness and spice. Add in excellent construction and a fair price and this is the best El Centurion since the original limited release, which still stands out to me as a particularly special cigar. That earns the My Father El Centurion H-2K-CT a rating of four stogies out of five.
