I reached into my humidor today and grabbed a cigar that I used to smoke religiously and a brand that not a lot of people know about- but should! The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero.
La Flor Dominicana was founded by Litto Gomez in 1996 in Santiago, Dominican Republic.Over the years they have developed an impressive portfolio of cigar lines and new cigar shapes- the wildly popular chisel. The company was started and is currently owned by cigar maker Litto Gomez Diez, who was called by Cigar Aficionado "arguably the most innovative mind in the cigar business." The name of the brand was inspired by the flower of the tobacco plant which signifies that the growing cycle is complete and the plant is ready for reproduction.
Introduced in 2003 the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero (DL) line features 2 Ligero leafs. The Ligero leaf is found near the top of each tobacco plant. Slower to mature than the seco leaves found at the middle of the plant or the easy-burning volado leaves at the bottom, ligero leaves are characterized by a coarse texture and produce smoke with a potent, spicy taste. While most full bodied cigars contain 1 ligero Leaf this cigar has 2- double the fun!
At the core of this great cigar is a robust blend of Dominican tobacco including 1 ligero leaf. These leafs are bound by another Dominican ligero leaf and finished off with a very oily and flavorful Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper.
Enough with the boring history and botany lessons lets get down to business and how it smokes.
This is a FULL flavored cigar with excellent construction and complexity. There is A LOT of creamy flavors in this cigar! It has a very satisfying spice that will tingle your lips as you smoke it along with some great cedar, coffee, nuts, cocoa, and a touch of molasses.
This is a must try and the best part about this super premium cigar is the price! Averaging $7 a stick this is a cigar that will not leave your pockets empty!
