LFD might translate over to the “flower of the Dominican,” but rest assured, this isn’t some sissy brand. As a matter of fact, this flower’s got thorns. Known for crafting some of the strongest, most full-octane handmades in the world, Litto Gomez and his La Flor Dominicana brand are an absolute treat for ligero-lovers. There’s tons of blends under the LFD name, but one that deserves immediate attention and box consideration is the Colorado Oscuro.
Rich and syrupy, this cigar doesn’t just glisten with oil — it shines. The Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper on this has an awesome reddish hue that’s rustic and inviting. Weighty in the hand, clipping the foot here and taking a puff, you’ll find grass, leather, citrus notes, and a thick natural sweetness mixed with a full-bodied hit of spice and pepper. Colorado Oscuro is everything I like about boutique cigars, and is one premium that anybody should try at least once.
