Straight off the cusp of their Limitado line, La Flor Dominicana Foundry cigars continue the success and critical acclaim that have garnered their respect in the stogie space for several years now. The presentation of this product has impressed many reviewers, who note the somewhat unusual coloring to the wrapper. What’s been described as a coffee bean color with a hint of red, the wrapper also contains only a few naked veins and seams that are not so easily seen without close inspection. The wrapper is also on the oily side, and holds the classic ‘LFD’ band on the traditional red gradient background. The contents of the stick are Ecuadorian and, naturally, Dominican in origin.

The pre-smoke has been described as an enjoyable experience and much akin to the actual draw of the stick. The La Flor Dominicana Foundry cigars are encompassed mostly of coffee and cedar tones throughout the body of the stogie. Upon lighting the stick, the coffee notes become much more vivid along with the somewhat less apparent cedar tones. The flavor profile kicks in at this point, bringing the peppery spices to the forefront. Along with all of the other flavors enveloping the profile, some slight chocolate and sweet notes become more prevalent at this pre-light stage as well.

The first third of these La Flor Dominicana Foundry cigars contains a bevy of different flavors, and continue the confluence of tastes during the pre-light while introducing some nutty spices that begin to emit more and more as the burn matures. The peppery flavors take a backseat to the rest of the flavors throughout the draw, while the chocolate and sweet notes linger in the background much longer and much stronger.

This is where this line differs from the rest of the pack, as this stick contains a nicotine-like flavor that is stronger than its counterparts. Reviewers agree that the body is of medium to medium-full strength, though near the end of the burn, it becomes a tad overwhelming when compared to the rest of the burn. Overall though, reviewers have remarked that the stick is an enjoyable one and well-balanced at that.

La Flor Dominicana Foundry cigars taper a bit during the second third, with the strong coffee tones from before taking a backseat to the very rich nutty flavor profiles that really shine during this stage of the burn. On top of everything else, very subtle citrus flavors become quite noticeable, creating an interesting and reciprocal mixed bag of tastes. This is all accomplished without bringing an overwhelming experience to the user, as most of the flavors are on the subtle end of the spectrum.

The final third of the La Flor Dominicana Foundry cigars take some of the earlier flavor profiles from before and switch on the equalizer, making some of the flavors more vivid and others fainter. For instance, most agree that the nutty and peppery notes become the focus of the final burn, while the sweet flavors begin to fade just a bit into the background. A bit of spice is to be had during the home stretch, along with a favorable aroma that is more on the peppery edge.
