Quick Smoke: El Museo by La Flor Dominicana

2 May 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

ElMuseo

El Museo is likely Litto Gomez’s most exclusive smoke, released to benefit El Museo del Barrio, New York City’s only Latin American museum. Wrapped in a lush, oily habano sun-grown leaf, the Dominican puro (6.75 x 52) features remarkable pre-light chocolate flavors. El Museo starts out with a burst of peppery spice followed closely by a full-bodied combination of cocoa, clove, and leather. It’s a powerful smoke, but balanced enough to not be overwhelming. Construction is flawless with a notably stable, dense, dark gray ash. Sure, it retails for around $30, but I’d be surprised if you didn’t find it to be one of the finest cigars you’ve ever smoked.

Verdict = Buy.
