La Flor Dominicana CigarsLa Flor Dominicana Habano cigars are widely regarded to have quality similar to those manufactured in Cuba.  Each box bears the Habanos Denomination of Origin Protection.  This endorsement is never given lightly.  It is, for all intents and purposes, a guarantee of quality and origin that goes only to the very best cigars made in Cuba itself, and to tobaccos derived from the best leaves.  To have this stamp of approval placed on a non-Cuban cigar is an honor indeed, and significant to the cigar world as a whole. 



Ever since the embargo was placed on Cuba by the United States, it has been difficult for many people to obtain Cuban cigars.  Nevertheless, Cuban cigars are still the standard by which all other cigars are judged.  Over the years, countless attempts have been made to reproduce the quality of Cuban blends and have failed.  In order to equal (or come close to equaling) Cuban quality, you have to duplicate as much as possible the combination of sun, temperature, humidity, and soil conditions of Cuba itself. 





You also have to grow your tobacco with seed tobacco taken from Cuba itself, which is exactly what Litto Gomez, the originator and grower of
La Flor Dominicana Habano cigars, set out to do about 20 years ago, and succeeded where others have failed. 



The La Flor Dominicana cigar is an outstanding cigar noted for its oily, seamless wrapper that gives it a fine appearance and construction.  Reviews have noted how well-packed this cigar is, and how you never find a soft spot anywhere.   



The flavor of the La Flor Dominicana Habano is quite notable.  It starts out with a taste of spicy molasses that offers hints of pepper, fig, and raisins in the first third of the smoke.  As you move into the second third, you get a taste of molasses even more, with notes of leather as well.  Then, when you get to the final third of the cigar, you also notice that there is a taste of coffee and caramel like sweetness.   



The great thing about this cigar is its cedar like core.  The spicy taste is consistent throughout, and the taste of pepper comes from red pepper, not black pepper.  No single taste dominates the Habano, so you get a good blend until the very finish, where you even may detect a slight fruity taste as you finish off the smoke. 



In terms of burn and ash, some reviewers have said that the La Flor Dominican Habano is the best burning cigar made by this manufacturer.  The draw offers negligible resistance.  You never have anything BUT consistency throughout.  You get a good, strong, white ash with no flaking.  It will hold for inches without falling on its own. 



Many have said that this is the best of all La Flor Dominicana cigars.  The only complaint it has ever received is limited availability.  Well, who ever found gold lying around on the ground like gravel, or diamonds used as paper weights on a coffee table.

People need to be real with themselves when they pursue something of value, and be happy when they find a retailer like Serious Cigars who can provide them with limited editions and rare blends for affordable prices.
