One of the cigars I’ve been smoking a little more of lately is the La Flor Dominicana La Nox. It was featured in a lot of 2015 top ten lists, so I thought I’d get to know it better. For one reason or another, it was a cigar that really wasn’t on my radar in 2015. There are a lot of great sticks out there, sometimes a good one will fall through the cracks.
Even before lighting it up, I already kinda liked the La Nox. It’s great looking cigar with a sharp band design and an attractive dark wrapper with mostly finer veins. And as a night owl, I find the whole nighttime theme appealing. (La Nox translates to “the night.”) But as anyone can tell you, looking good doesn’t automatically mean a cigar will smoke well. It’s time to put the La Nox to the test. Did it deserve a spot on my top ten list? Only time and fire will tell.
