La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel Maduro

One of the first non cuban cigars I’ve had. It always reminds me of one of my dearest friends “Bill”. Actually I’ve read that Litto Gomez the founder of ”LFD” came up with the idea of making a chisel shaped cigar while he was riding a horse at his farm in DP and smoking a torpedo cigar. He was chewing the end of the torpedo so he found it very comfortable and easy to hold in mouth, he went back to the factory asked the rollers to make him a cigar shaped the same as the one he got and that was the chisel.

Initial thoughts:

Size: 6 x 54

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro

Binder: Dominican Republic

Filler: Dominican Republic

A unique shape and beautiful work on this cigar. A very dark oily and veinless wrapper. The prelights draw was good delivering aromas of sweet chocolate and leather. The burn was razor sharp and the ash is white like a clouds and holds well.

1st third:

At first shots of pepper and strong tobacco taste as will be expected from a ligero. It mellow to become like dream with medium body creamy smoke contains pepper, leather and sweet tobacco flavors. It then gain more power an inch down and its the show time, more pepper and ligero with hints of sweetness that comes from this fabulous Ecuadorian maduro wrapper.

2nd third:

The dream continue more flavors of sweet cherry and  maduro, rich leathery peppery liegro tobacco. By the half way point it turns to full body which could be felt in the stomach. Notes of cocoa and coffee beans is obvious. The aroma is very sweet with hints cherry

Final third:

The cigar gets very strong here with pepper leading and every thing else behind like the maduro sweetness and the leather.

Final thoughts:

A power house cigar, one of the strongest ever had. It is what the double ligero should be. It is great match with scotch wine of after dinner. this cigar from my experience age very well and become smoother and more complex. I really like it.
