The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Lancero is known for its premium beauty and crafted by the master blender Litto Gomez. Gomez created this cigar while thinking about the full-bodied smoker.
Litto Gomez may be credited by the buzzword in the cigar industry: ligero. This does not refer to a particular type of tobacco, but it refers to the top priming of leaves on a tobacco plant. They are the ones that receive the most sunlight. These leaves are capable of providing a distinctly potent and spicy aroma of the tobacco. Gomez in his attempt to push the envelope doubled the amount of ligero in his cigar blends which include the LFD Ligero to be able to create the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Lancero.
The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Lancero is thin and highly powerful at the size of 7.5 x 38. This cigar is rolled with an Ecuador Habano wrapper. It is also composed of ligero Dominican long fillers which are picked freshly from the top of the plant. This cigar allows for a highly complex smoke that’s rich with bold flavors of salted caramel, leather, peppery spice, coffee, and oak.
The La Flor Dominicana is a long panatela which is made by hand from the Dominican Republic. Its wrapper is made from Ecuadorian Sumatra-seed Colorado-maduro which covers the Dominican Republic binder and filler. It is a potent cigar stick that has to be smoked only after a hearty meal. This is the rock star in the cigar industry, but this is not meant for beginners.
It is difficult to forget your first experience of an LFD. It’s a cigar brand that you would want to smoke for life because it offers a range of cigar strength from double ligero to mild. You will always have a stick from one brand regardless of what mood you are in. No matter what size and strength of cigar you like to smoke, there’s an LFD that suits that particular description for any moment you are in.
