La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel Maduro - Cigar Review

La Flor Dominicana
Double Ligero Chisel Maduro 
654 Wedge Torpedo
NOTES:
A well appointed/behaved cigar. Draw wobbles-some re: tension, but satiates smoke-hole always. Burn requires a re-touch, lightly-so. Notes of pepper, leather, and earth; top-to-bottom. Semi-sweet chocolate, rich coffee, pecan, creme brulee, alfalfa, black cherry -- all hither and thither and mainly in that order. Verily complex, via nuance not transition.

FINAL GRADE: A
A 90-100
B 80-89
C 70-79
D 60-69
F 0-59
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Sumatra Maduro
BINDER: Dominican
FILLER: Dominican

STRENGTH: Medium-Full
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
NAME DROPS: Litto Gomez
IN ADDITION:
"Litto Gomez used to make only mild cigars. His Double Ligero Chisel is quite the opposite. Loaded with leathery, brawny flavor accented by black pepper notes, the cigar is powered by Gomez's homegrown filler and binder and finished with a rich, dark leaf of Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador by the Oliva family. It's a cigar that can't be ignored, from its bold flavor to its distinctive head, which resembles the mouthpiece of a woodwind instrument or the hand tool that gives this cigar its name. Ligero is the strongest type of filler tobacco, and Gomez aptly warns the smoker of the extra kick to this 6 by 54 figurado." Cigar Aficionado
