La Flor Dominicana Air Bender

Description

La Flor Dominicana....Air....Bender?

I hear guys praising Nicaragua all the time, but let’s be real: there’s a ton of awesome countries producing amazing tobacco. And I can’t think of a better example than LFD. La Flor Dominicana’s farm and factory are responsible for some of the tastiest handmades hailing from the island. And undoubtedly the strongest.

Made with estate grown Dominican binder and long-fillers, wrapped under a gorgeous Habano wrapper, the Air Bender is a full-bodied cigar lover’s dream. This stick burns long and smooth, promising a ton of burn time on the larger sizes. Beyond that, the white clouds booming off of this cigar bring red pepper, earthiness, and a nice sweetness that holds it all together. 

In addition to a '94' rating, La Flor Dominicana Air Bender was named one of the world's 'Top 25 Cigars', which stated, "Bold from the very first puff, the cigar is strong and meaty, full of spice and coffee notes, with a finish reminiscent of a whiskey barrel."

NOTE: We are experiencing delays from La Flor Dominicana at this time, and are unsure when we will receive more box product. The Pack of 20 cigars available are the same blend and quality, just without the box.

This is an enjoyable smoke with a smooth kick. Once you smoke the Guerrero you’ll never be without them in your humidor. Get them when you can because they sell out fast.

La Flor Dominicana Air Bender

Brandon S

Just to prove that I actually do read the ol’ e-mails that people send, I’m going to do this review based on a request from Jack W. who hails from Marysville, MI. Jack e-mailed me saying that he enjoyed the La Flor Dominicana Air Bender and wanted to know my thoughts, specifically on the Maestro Size. So I moseyed on out to the humidor and picked up a 5’er of these 5.5”x52 sized cigars. The first thing I noticed is the oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that encompasses the all Dominican blend which is sure to packed full of usual ligeros that are the hallmark of blender Litto Gomez.

The cigar itself is heavy in the hand and has a pre-light aroma familiar to blends that utilize well fermented tobaccos. As I light up one of these puppies I’m reading about the history of La Flor Dominicana… Turns out founder Litto Gomez started up the company after his jewelry store was robbed of about $400,000 in merchandise! Go figure…

Right about….now, I’m about half an inch in and I am noticing a light spice on my palate as well an enjoyable flavor upon exhaling through the nose. I’m not that far into the cigar and already I can tell that it is going to be full bodied – something that the bulk of La Flor’s releases are known for.

I’m about half way through this here Bender of Air and I’ve noticed that the spice has dissipated, but there is a nice amaretto like finish that I am actually finding myself enjoying. The strength hasn’t let up at all. In fact, I am having trouble typing at this point.

One thing that I should point out about this cigar is that I’ve had to relight it a few times and the burn I found to be less than perfect. Aside from that, I am enjoying the blend which seems to pair well with my ‘Best of Johnny Cash’ collection that I have pumping through the headphones. As far as price goes, well, the MSRP may cause a few folks to take a second glance, ranging from $140 - $165 a box.

I’ll wrap up this review since I’ve gotten near the end of the cigar. I must say, the blend does seem to be heading south a bit. I’m starting to get some harsh flavors that are turning me off to the cigar. I found this same characteristic to be present in each of the Air Benders that I burned through. So, to sum it all up – I enjoyed the first half, but the second half – not so much. Was that first half worth $7+? To me…no. But as always, taste is subjective. So pick a few up and try them for yourself!
