All ligero, all of the time
Litto Gomez and LFD can easily be crowned the King of Dominican Cigars. Sure, there’s tons of awesome handmades coming from this island, but none quite as iconic or flavorful as La Flor Dominicana. While the blends are incredibly varied, there is one thing in common: LFD’s got kick. Like, championship level kick-boxing strength behind it. It all comes from their generous use of ligero long-fillers, and in the cigars at hand today, that leaf takes center-stage.
If you’re not a fan of full-bodied cigars, I’d suggest taking yourself elsewhere post-haste. But if you want a boutique boomstick that’ll demand your taste bud’s full attention, stand up. LFD Ligero has an awesome pre-light aroma, and after toasting it you’ll find a spice that grows in flavor and intensity down to the nub. Earthiness and the natural sweetness of Dominican tobacco make an appearance too. Jump in on this jalapeno, and you won’t be disappointed.
La Flor Dominicana Ligero received a well-deserved 92-rating noting: "Beautifully made, this earthy cigar has a sweet wood flavor and a taste of black cherries. It's medium to full bodied, complex and delicious."
