Figurado

The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero cigar uses a complex blend of tobaccos that result in a rich and full-bodied smoking experience. This cigar also showcases the birth of the original "chisel" shape. Created by legendary cigar maker Litto Gomez, the chisel shape was designed to spread the flavor across the palate, resulting in an more flavorful smoking experience.

 

Pre-Smoke
Sporting an oily, dark maduro wrapper, this cigar is beautiful to behold. Firmly constructed, the cigar is hard to the touch. Wrapper veining is minimal, and the cap on the chisel end is well applied.

 

The wrapper smells of dark chocolate and spice, and the prelight draw confirms this. 

 

Burn

The LFD Chisel burns slowly, and creates a dark gray, dirty color ash that holds on well. Some of the cigars we tested did require some touchups to keep the burn even, but none exhibited serious problems.

   

The FlavorLFD-dblig-ch-mad-box
Initial flavors are agressive with dark chocolate, spice and a strong earthiness. This cigar is full bodied from the get-go.

 

Additional flavors that appear throughout the smoke are licorice/anise, leather and toffee. These help to "sweeten" the flavor profile and add depth and interest to the smoking experience.  Even though the cigar is strong, it is never harsh, and the smoothness is beguiling.  Towards the end, meaty, salty flavors appear and add to the complexity of this cigar.

 

Our overall impression is that the La Flor Dominicana Chisel Maduro is complex, well balanced, yet strong. 

 

The Double Ligero blend is also available with a natural wrapper, and comes in various vitolas as well.

Suggested Single Malt Pairing

Amrut Portonova

Dark chocolate, dark red fruits, soft tannins all work incredibly well with the La Flor.

 

Suggested Chocolate Pairing

Chuao - Framboise

The fruity goodness of Framboise's rich raspberry pate is beautifully combined with a layer of fudge, then enrobed in the highest quality dark chocolate.  Its jammy notes with those hints of cocoa blend wonderfully with this port influenced whiskey. Click here to purchase.
