Quick Smoke: La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Churchill Especiales Oscuro

13 Jan 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Churchill Especiales Oscuro

With an incredibly oily wrapper, the Double Ligero Especiales has been a hidden gem in the La Flor Dominicana portfolio for years. The cigar (7 x 48) features a sun-grown Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper with a pigtail cap around Dominican binder and filler. The pre-light notes are rich with toasted oak and dried fruit. Once lit, I find graphite, wood, unsweetened chocolate, and earth. It’s medium- to full-bodied with lots going on. A classic, powerful, Dominican filler-driven blend, the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Churchill Especiales Oscuro is worth revisiting.

Verdict = Buy.

    I love these cigars. I just finished off another 5 pack of them. They have that great, what I call, “LFD Funk”. You know, the mixture of hardwoods, tangyness, a touch of sweetness. For a long time, I didn’t really “get” most LFD cigars, but over the past few years I’ve really grown to crave them. They tend to be so unique from other manufacturers.
