The La Flor Dominicana 1994, celebrating 20 years of Litto Gomez blending. I managed to get my hands on a few of these (a box) and I am glad I did. Right now, these are a hidden gem but after smoking one you soon realize you need more.
The wrapper is oily and earthy and has zero flaws. The cold draw had a bit of a cedar flavor to me and it feels like a very tight roll.
5 mins- the flavors are amazing i can pick up a bit of a sweet cocoa flavor or just a hint of coffee combination
15 mins- nothing but pleasure with this cigar the cocoa has turned into almost a maple syrup with a hint of orange on the retrohale. I really like the complexity of this cigar.
40 mins- the spice has appeared and maybe a little bit of a clove flavor and some pepper
The draw on this cigar was something I worried about when I felt the tight roll but it was effortless. The spice and light sweetness on the finish make this one pleasurable cigar for a brisk dog walk on Thanksgiving (Pre Turkey). I would say this is the best LFD cigar I have had. I love the Litto Gomez small batch and this is definitely along that path. Litto Gomez proves with this cigar why he is a master blender and his factpry continues to impress.
I am giving this La Flor Dominicana 1994, 10 Smoke Rings. This is a great cigar at a price point less than $9. I am not sure what else you can ask for with this stick. For this review I smoked 3 of these in the Robusto Vitola and enjoyed everyone to the nub.
