Review by “L’Amateur de cigare” magazine
La Flor Dominicana
Special football edition 2019 (Factory press)
Wrapper : Ecuador and Connecticut
Binder and filler : Dominican Republic
165 mm x 58 (18.4 mm)
$16 (only available in Georgia)
Box-pressed cigar. Colorado maduro wrapper topped with a pattern representing a football, drawn with a Connecticut claro wrapper leaf.
Cold draw tasting : lots of wood and some spices. Good draw.
Very balanced ignition on a very slightly peppery vegetable atmosphere. The combustion is slow and well paced. The aromas go deeper and deeper as the tasting goes.
The cigar then turns to liquorice while the smoke becomes fatter.
Peppery third part and final.
A collector’s cigar, with a very Dominican taste in its first part (vegetable notes), but offering a nice evolution thereafter. Seductive overall. Great technical performance of the torcedores regarding the visual aspect.
Rings : 4/5
