La Flor Dominicana Torpedito Ligero Oscuro – Cigar Review

Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Torpedito Ligero Oscuro
Wrapper: Nice brown color with only tiny veins.
Construction:  Perfect draw after a shallow cut.  Firm and evenly packed.  Great chisel shape.
Pre-light Notes:  Looking forward to finally reviewing an LFD cigar!   Spicy, barnyard tobacco smell.

Flavor & Taste: The first half was dominated by a robust buttery tobacco flavor w/ peppermint spice on the finish.  It also has a faint sweetness to it.  It lit up easily and is burning straight.  It’s also full bodied right off the bat.  Off to a great start!
The cigar has remained full bodied for the second half.  The second half features a charred oak flavor with plenty of pepper and spice on the finish.  Both sticks I smoked did require one minor burn correction.  La Flor Dominicana cigars are known for being strong, and I can really feel the nicotine in the second half of this small cigar.

Overall:  I got these samples from LFD, and I’m glad they sent them.  This is a very good cigar that packs a ton of flavor into a small stick.  The quality of the leaf really shows.  The construction was good and the price is very reasonable for such a flavorful cigar.  These are not aimed towards the beginner crowd due to the full body smoke and strong kick they pack.  I highly recommend these to the experienced cigar smoker who is looking for a smaller smoke that doesn’t smoke like one.
