La Flor Dominicana double ligero digger maduro

The double ligero blend by La Flor Dominicana is well known for its strength that comes from the Dominican filler and binder, combined with an Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper. Now La Flor Dominicana ups the challenge of smoking the double ligero by adding The Digger to the portfolio. The first time I saw this 8½x60 cigar I thought “every officer of the law should have this, it’s a billy club”.
The wrapper has the color of dark chocolate, some big veins and it is very oily, which probably makes it a cigar that ages well. This cigar looks rough and tough. I smell some wood and the construction feels great. The predraw is fine, I taste tobacco and something hearty, something carrot like.
I taste a dark, bitter and spicy earth flavor with a mild sweetness and chocolate. After an inch I taste herbs with a mild citrus and wood. Halfway I taste wood, herbs and a little bit of sal ammoniac. Soon after I also taste citrus again and something I can only describe as carrot.
After two thirds I taste nutmeg, pepper and herbs. Soon after the earthy flavor returns, but without the bitterness. I also taste pepper, some herbs and a nut flavor. The nuts fade away and I keep tasting that earthy flavor with herbs and lots of pepper in the aftertaste.
This cigar lasted me almost four hours. The draw is great and I got a lot of smoke from the cigar. The pepper and salt colored ash is compact and firm. This cigar is full flavored and full bodied. I did have to correct the burn a few times.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, I wouldn’t. I loved the flavors, but 4 hours? That’s not relaxing and smoking a cigar, that comes close to work.
