Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana 2000 Series No. 3

17 Feb 2014

LFD 2000 No 3When I initially heard that La Flor Dominicana (LFD) was discontinuing some of their lines, I was very nervous. LFD has a plethora of high quality, enjoyable smokes and a few of them have been in my regular rotation for a while now. While it was not entirely removed, the LFD 2000 Series offerings were cut down dramatically. From now on, only one size out of the original nine will be offered.

This vitola is the No. 3 (4.625 x 40). Though this cigar is small, the myths surrounding it loom large. Some claim that a portion of the tobacco included in the 2000 series comes directly from Litto Gomez’s private 120-acre farm. I have also been told, from the sales representative for LFD who works in my region, that the 2000 No. 3 was saved because it is Litto’s personal favorite cigar. While I cannot verify whether or not any of these claims are true, they are certainly interesting.

What really interests me about this cigar is how it differs from other LFD offerings. While normally known for their nicotine-heavy, ligero-filled smokes, this cigar is instead a solid medium in both flavor and strength. Dominican and Brazilian fillers compliment the Cameroon wrapper, which has a nice smoothness to it with minimal veins.

When lit, the 2000 series has a lot to offer. The main flavors here are very nutty, with cedar compliments in the beginning. Further in to the experience the cigar adds a nice pepper, with a spicy and medium-length finish. Though I expected some sweetness due to the Cameroon wrapper, it was not really there. The flavors that are present, though, are very pleasant, and the taste remains consistent down to the nub.

This cigar is a great offering from LFD, and it is nice to see them differentiate from their normal hard-hitters. When one takes into account how quickly these cigars can be smoked, and the affordability of a box, it is hard to award this stick anything less than four stogies out of five.

    I can't swear it is Litto Gomez's favourite but I can say it is usually what he smokes during the factory tour and public appearance. It really is a superb smoke and the price point is definitely an advantage.

    I bought several of the 2000 series some years ago through mail order, as I am a big fan of Cameroon wrappers. I had read they were no longer promoting the line, but didn't know they were all but killing it. That's too bad.
