La Flor Dominicana Ligero Robusto

This La Flor Dominicana Ligero robusto cigar comes from the robusto sampler and my plan is to review four out of the five cigars, the La Flor Dominicana Suave I gave away because of my passionate disliking of Connecticut shade cigars. The La Flor Dominicana I’m smoking has a Sumatra wrapper from Ecuador.

The cigar is a little small for a robusto, about 4¾x48 and looks a bit curved. I see a few thin veins. Now I love Litto and most of the cigars he makes but never liked the bands so I wouldn’t pick this cigar in a humidor if I didn’t know the cigar. The color is beautiful and deep brown. The aroma is mild and dark. Like I said, the cigar is a bit crooked so the construction isn’t 100%. The cold draw, that has a raisin and pepper flavor, is top notch though.

I taste some bitter herbal flavors. A nice bitterness though. After half an inch it changes to wood with just a hint of pepper.

Halfway the wood is strong, the white pepper is a solid base for the wood flavor to shine.

The smoke is medium to thick and light gray to white. The draw is great just like the burn. The ash is firm. Medium full in strength and in flavor.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, pleasant cigar, nothing spectacular but still nice enough to smoke again. Even though it’s a small robusto it lasted me for an hour and 45 minutes due to the slow burn and my slow smoking.
