When veteran cigar smokers want a smoke that is both powerful and complex, they select a stick like the Double Ligero from LFD.
As you likely know, the term “ligero” refers to layers of tobacco leaves near or at the top of the plant. They receive the most sunlight. As a result, they draw more nutrients from the soil. This gives ligero tobacco a stronger, more flavorful body than leaves from lower down on the plant.
LFD cigars are the creation of Litto Gomez and his wife Ines. The La Flor Dominicana factory was built in 1996 in Santiago, the Dominican Republic. Farms are owned in nearby La Canela. In the years since its founding, LFD has become known as one of the true premium cigar manufacturers in the industry.
The chisel design of these cigars is quite unique. The foot is flared. The head of the cigar is pressed to form a chisel shape. If you like a slightly firm draw and lots of flavor coming through it, you’ll enjoy the way these stogies smoke.
LFD Double Ligero Tobacco Blend and Flavors
The long-leaf filler of these potent sticks contains twice the amount of ligero tobacco used in most blends, if it is used at all. That increases both the body (flavor) and the strength. The filler is cultivated on the LFD farm in La Canela. The binder is also Dominican.
For the wrapper, Litto Gomez selected Ecuadorian leaves grown from Sumatra seed. The tobacco is grown in full sun to increase the richness and flavor. An oily maduro is available in most sizes. The maduro wrapper is fermented to a beautiful dark hue that is oily too.
La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero smokes are bold and spicy by design. There is plenty of leather augmented by coffee bean, honeyed oak, dark cherry, licorice and roasted nuts.
Keep in mind that these are potent cigars. They contain enough nicotine to bring on a tingle, so be prepared.
