 La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet SeriesLa Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet cigars are undoubtedly showcasing among the smoother smokes made in the Dominican Republic.  Made in Tabacalera La Flor S.A, these cigars were first introduced in July of 2007 and are expected to age well if one can find the strength to leave them aside for a bit.  These medium-bodied cigars perform well and are a great pick for a natural atmosphere given its earthy tones. 



The first thing that stands out about the La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet is that it is lacking a band or other manufacturer marking.  It is also devoid of cellophane, so if one plans to leave it in a humidor for a while to age, a plan should be in place to identify it later.  This might not be a problem for those with an appetite for a smooth, medium-bodied smoke, however, given the desirability of this cigar. 



Although this cigar is not polished as far as being a smooth beauty, its rustic and leafy appearance makes this lengthy rod a temptation to touch.  The La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet sports a dark, leathery brown color and the wrapper has an oily appearance, however, it is hard to detect many oils on the wrapper.  In fact, the wrapper has a moderately rough texture that has been compared to the gentle grit of a fine sand paper.   



Given that this cigar is firm and tightly rolled, the pre-light draw may have a few limitations, but still teases the taste buds with a slightly sweet flavor.  Likewise, the pre-light aromas of this cigar are subtle, but still allow for detection of earthy notes with hints of autumn leaves and cocoa.  Once lit, the La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet opens with a sour-sweet tart flavor and reveals notes of black pepper and nuts.  The black pepper initially shows as the dominant flavor of this cigar, but is quickly blended with a variety of flavors, which prove to make the complexity of this cigar worthy of praise.  Leather, hay, and earthy notes make up the blend of flavors, leaving a finishing note of cocoa to please the palette.   During the final third, the potency enhances, however the complexity of the flavors remains constant. 



The performance of this cigar is stellar.  Although the pre-light draw seems to be a little tight, the cigar lights easily and burns evenly.  The smoke produced is abundant during burning and the solid, dark gray ash is just as pleasing.  The first ash has been reported to hold for almost 3 inches with each additional ash falling about every inch. 



Overall, La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet cigars stand up to the tests of aficionados with an appetite for a medium-bodied smoke.  After being put through scrutinizing reviews, this cigar is proving to be a great candidate for those craving a challenge from a complex cigar.  Whatever the reason for indulging in one of these cigars, one is sure to develop an appreciation for it soon after setting the fire.
