Stogie Reviews: La Flor Dominicana Mysterio Oscuro

18 May 2010

LFDMysterioOne could do a blind review of the La Flor Dominicana Mysterio but there wouldn’t be any point. With it’s large perfecto shape, peculiar light wrapper on the foot, and even more peculiar head, there’s nothing like it.

The Mysterio features an immaculate pigtail head and a natural habano wrapper tip. In between is a dark, ultra-oily oscuro wrapper leaf that’s so shiny I half expected to see my reflection in it. Underneath these dual wrappers are binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic.

The Mysterio by La Flor Dominicana is as much a piece of art as it is a cigar. But don’t dismiss this well-constructed seven inch by 54 ring gauge perfecto as a gimmick. Litto Gomez didn’t create these cigars just to show off his artistry. It still is meant to be smoked.

Once lit, the perfecto starts out with burst of pepper. It then settles into a full-bodied combination of oak, espresso, and roasted nuts. Despite it’s formidable flavor profile, the cigar has impressive balance, with a cedary, dry finish.

Given that only master cigar rollers can construct this remarkable cigar, it should come as no surprise that its physical properties are impressive, including a sturdy ash, even burn, and an easy draw that produces volumes of cool smoke.

Between it’s unique looks and $15 price tag, you won’t likely be making the LFD Mysterio a regular smoke. But when you’re looking for an excellent full-flavored cigar that can start a conversation even before it’s lit, it would be hard to make a better choice than the mysterious-looking Mysterio. That earns the La Flor Dominicana Mysterio Oscuro a commendable rating of four stogies out of five.

    Where do you cut the La Lor Domincana Mysterio? Do you cut the entire tip off?
