Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Limitado V

21 Mar 2013

LFD-Limitado-VGiven this cigar’s pedigree, I’m sure it will come as no surprise to hear that the latest limited edition from La Flor is a powerful smoke. But it’s also a complex, balanced treat that fulfills the promise of a line released only every other year or so.

The V comes in a single vitola that weighs in at 6.5 inches long with a 54 ring gauge and a production level reportedly under 100,000. The price tag ranges from around $9.50 to $11, a reasonable amount considering the size and what you get for your money.

And what you get is a terrific cigar with more changes than a Rockette in the Christmas show. It begins with a nice, tangy pre-light aroma from the Dominican filler, kicks off with pepper in the first few puffs, and then quickly shifts to a deep chocolate undertone. There’s a pleasant bite to the finish that’s present from beginning to end.

This cigar rewards attention. I easily picked up leather, hay, a hint of coffee, cedar, and several spices. I’ve smoked three from a five-pack, and they’ve been remarkably consistent in both flavor and construction. The burn, draw, and ash were all first-rate from start to finish.

Previous Limitado blends featured tobacco from more than one country, and the V continues the trend. In addition to the Dominican filler, the wrapper is Ecuadorian sun grown and the binder is Nicaraguan. Those also are the three countries represented in the first Limitado.

About the only negative I could find is that La Flor packs these in boxes of 48, putting that purchase into the pricing stratosphere (around $500).

For this kind of enjoyment, the La Flor Dominicana Limitado V rates the top-of-the-mark five stogies out of five.

    Haven't had an LFD in longer than I'd like to admit. This looks/sounds extra tasty. I'll be on the lookout for this for sure.

    George, have you come across a list of retailers anywhere?

    Most place seem to be out of stock, though Atlantic appears to have a handful of 5-packs left.

    Surprising…the one sample I tried a few months back was pretty sour tasting…my source has one sealed box in stock…anyone interested in splitting that box multiple ways?

    Hmmm, our rep told me it was Sumatra wrapper this time…which did surprise me. It was very good and very well made. Did you guys pair it with anything special? Great review again!

      It's an Ecuadorian, Sun Grown (they really don't shade grown anything in Ecuador) Sumatra wrapper.

      Chas – I was drinking coffee with a couple and, I believe just water with one. I think it would stand up to most anything you enjoy drinking.

    Patrick: I bought a couple from OVTC Kingstowne yesterday.
