La Flor Dominicana Small Batch No. 5 - 6 3/X52. Wrapper - Dominican Republic, Binder - Dominican Republic, Filler - Dominican Republic. Full bodied.

Initial taste - Hot pepper & cedar.

First third - Peppery spice, cedar, chewy, rich leather with a sweet Earthiness emerging by the end of the first third of this cigar.

Second third - La Flor Dominicana Small Batch No. 5 - 6 3/4 X 52. Wrapper - Dominican Republic, Binder - Dominican Republic, Filler - Dominican Republic. Full bodied.

Initial taste - Hot pepper & cedar.

First third - Peppery spice, cedar, chewy, rich leather with a sweet Earthiness emerging by the end of the first third of this cigar.

Second third - Pepper spice continues with the think leather with the sweet Earthiness becoming more prevalent and the cedar flavor is now more of a note in the background.

Last third - Pepper settles down to a strong spice, the leather takes on a citrus aspect in this third, sweet Earth with cedar notes. Long finish of spicy leather and Earth.

Construction - Attractive dark-brown wrapper with a nice oily sheen, minor veins and a very well made cap.

Draw - Perfect draw with plenty of billowy smoke produced.

Burn - Sharp burn with a light-gray colored ash that is solid and holds on until tapped off.

A fantastic, evolving cigar with excellent complexity and balance. I was impressed with the developing flavor profile in each third of the cigar which made for a very enjoyable smoking experience. MSRP is $19.00 which would make this a special occasion cigar for me, but it is worth it if you want a special treat. This is a full bodied cigar so a full meal is needed before smoking this cigar.

La Flor Dominicana Cigars has really been turning out one great product after another. Just when I think I found my favorite from them, they come out with another one that tops it - I highly recommend trying.
