La Flor Dominican Colorado Oscuro SeriesThe La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series of cigars were a much awaited debut at the IPCPR trade show in early 2011. As expected by many reviewers, owner Litto Gomez and his La Flor Dominicana brand did not disappoint. The limited tobacco utilized, combined with the high quality standards that Gomez ensures in his cigars is enough to make the La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series the perfect choice for all types of cigar smokers.

Leaving his jewelry career behind after much hardship, Litto Gomez found his calling in the Dominican Republic cigar industry. Over the course of the next fifteen to twenty years, he gained the knowledge and experience to perfect the blends he produces to this day. The La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series is a prime example of what his natural talent can produce. Its wrapper is crafted from Ecuadorian Ligero Sumatra tobacco leaves that are available on a limited basis, resulting in a bi-annual release for these cigars. Dominican Sumatra tobacco makes up the binder while the filler is a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco leaves. The series is made up of four different sizes, including the #2 4 ¼ x 48, #3 5 x 50, #4 5 ¼ x 54, and the #5 5 ¾ x 60. Each gauge is available in boxes of 50 with an affordable price tag to top it off.

In taking a closer look at one in particular, numerous reviewers agreed upon the La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series #5 as being a premium cigar worth trying. The appearance is said to be flawless with substantial oils and a deep brown coloring. There are minimal vein lines present. It is said to feel solid and firmly packed in the hand pre-smoke. The aroma of sugar and spice it gives off is enticing. Once lit with a favorite cigar lighter this cigar is said to have an easy draw and be quite flavorful right from the start. In the first third of the smoke it begins to taste of pepper with a slight leathery undertone. As the burn continues a bit of a metallic flavor comes through. Upon reaching the second third there is said to be an introduction of additional flavors such as cinnamon and a woodsy nature. The spiciness has receded at this stage. The smoke is solid and the ash is nearly white with specks of brown mixed in. During the final third the pepper and spice are said to return with more intensity. One reviewer noted that hints of nature and cinnamon remain while the sweetness returns for the final puffs. This cigar has been described as a slow smoke that allows both the beginner and the more serious cigar connoisseur to relax and truly enjoy the flavor experience from start to finish.

From the #2 to the #5, the La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro series lives up to the reputation that Litto Gomez has worked tirelessly to achieve over the years. His first attempt to utilize a Nicaraguan tobacco has reportedly been an instant success. With its limited release, this stogie is surely one to add to the humidor when it is obtainable.
