The La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series was a met with unabashed enthusiasm at its debut in the IPCPR trade show in early 2011. Litto Gomez and his brand La Flor Dominicana were hailed for the addition of this line. He has once again proven his natural ability in cigar production.
Following much hardship in the jewelry business, Gomez found his true calling in the cigar industry in the Dominican Republic. The La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series is a superb example of the experience and knowledge he has gained over the years.
It is constructed of an Ecuadorian Ligero Sumatra tobacco that is available on a limited basis, resulting in a bi-annual release for these amazing cigars. Â The binder is a delightful Dominican Sumatra tobacco, while the filler is a wonderful blend of both Nicaraguan and Dominican leaves. The La Flor Dominican Colorado Oscuro series is available in four distinct sizes, the #2, #3, #4, and #5 and each comes in an affordable box of 50.
The #5 in particular is said to be a premiumÂ cigar worth experiencing. The exterior has been described as having an oily surface with minimal veins. It is firmly packed and feels solid in the hand. Once easily lit this smoke has an easy draw with flavors of pepper and leather coming through right from the start. Metallic hints are said to begin to be introduced, as are notes of cinnamon and nature around the midpoint. The spiciness decreases at this stage, yet it is said to return with more strength in the final third accompanied by hints of pepper, sweet sugar, and additional cinnamon.
Reviewers agree that the La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series is a slow smoke sure to be found in humidors everywhere, whether they belong to beginners or more experienced cigar connoisseurs. Available at establishments that have cigars for sale.
