Quick Smoke: La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro No. 4

11 May 2013

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.”

This cigar can be summed up easily: excellent. From the dark, oily Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and pungent cold aroma to a symphony of flavors that begins with the light and never lets up, the Colorado Oscuro No. 4 is terrific. La Flor’s Florida-area manager, Antonio Gomez, told me the line is produced once or twice a year, “depending on wrapper availability.” The blend, with Dominican and Nicaraguan filler, remains the same each time, Gomez added. As with many LFDs, it’s a strong cigar, but by no means overwhelming. The No. 4 is hefty, weighing in at 5.25 inches long with a ring gauge of 54. And, if I may repeat myself, it’s excellent.

Verdict = Buy.
