This La Flor Dominicana ligero Maduro 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 ligero robusto I’m smoking has a Maduro wrapper as you might have guessed.
The cigar is a little small for a robusto, about 4¾x48 just like the ligero robusto, the other 3 cigars are a bit bigger. The wrapper is dark and oily. The construction feels good, a few thin veins give the cigar character. The cigar has a woody aroma. The cold draw is great and leaves a peppery flavor on my lips.
I’m tasting dark chocolate, pepper and wood in the first few puffs. The flavors change to a mute pepper with some coffee and a hint of sweetness.
After a third it’s wood with some sweetness and muted pepper. Halfway the cigar turns bitter and the pepper is back in full force. The bitterness is getting less, but remains on the aftertaste.
The draw is great. The smoke is quite thick and beautiful white, just like the firm ash. The cigar is full bodied and medium flavored. The smoke time is about 75 minutes.
Would I buy this cigar again? Even though it scores higher than the regular ligero, I rather buy the regular ligero because it’s more consistent.
