Introduced at the 2006 RTDA in Las Vegas, Litto Gomez has yet again created a stogie that takes a turn from the norm in the form of the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Mysterio. I first need to thank few people for bringing this stogie my way. First I need to thank my family Engel and Lance for this and a great assortment of stogies for my birthday. I also need to thank Finnie over at The Humidour in Timonium MD for suggesting the assortment to them that included an Ashton ESG, Oliva Master Blend and a few other premium stogies.
The La Flor Dominicana Ligero Mysterio is a pretty interesting looking cigar. Not only do you have a beautiful 7×54 perfecto shaped stogie but the cigar sports a Dominican filler, Sumatra binder and a Nicaraguan wrapper. You will also notice that the foot and the beehive looking head are tipped with Connecticut Broad Leaf Maduro tobacco.
Now all I have to say, is this is an amazing cigar! Well worth the price of $15 and up! Maybe I’d feel differently if I actually paid for this stogie but as it stands, the La Flor Dominicana is right up there with the AVO 80th and Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve. There were a few times that I totally got preoccupied by the smooth rich flavors. I was impressed with the balance of a sweet maple syrup taste along with some white pepper. The intensity of the flavor profile changes throughout. Just when you think the white pepper taste will become overwhelming the intensity mellows out and while the little break is welcome you wait with great anticipation for the intensity to pick back up.
No burn or construction issues that I didn’t bring upon myself. There were times I went into fast forward mode and started puffing more often which led to the Mysterio burning hot and erratic. But like I said, I think this was my mistake and no flaw with the stogies construction.
Outside of the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Mysterio’s hefty price tag, I’d have to highly recommend it. I know its tough to pull the trigger with that price but you won’t be disappointed. The La Flor Dominicana Ligero Mysterio offers a rich, intense and balanced profile with flawless construction – as long as you don’t get too engulfed and smoke too fast.
