La Flor Dominicana L-200 Cabinet Oscuro

Submitted by Rob on December 21, 2009 – 8:12 amOne Comment

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Filler: Dominican Republic
Size: Corona (4 7/8 x 40)
Strength: Full

Construction: This toothy wrapper is oily, dark and beautiful to stare at. The tobacco was packed heavy and you will not find any soft spots on the La Flor Dominicana L-200. A single medium sized vein may be found but will not effect the burn.

Draw: The La Flor Dominicana L-200 was smokable with punch but performed perfectly with a cut or a deep v-cut. It had the right amount of resistance to prevent the small cigar from burning hot and the smoke was still plentiful.

Burn: The burn on the La Flor Dominicana L-200 was perfect and created a gray ash.

Flavor: When you are smoking a cigar that is smaller in size you decrease the chances of the filler tobacco playing a major role in the complexity or flavor profile. Generally speaking you then increase the chance of your palate only recognizing the wrapper that is used on the cigar.

This is exactly what happened as we were smoking the La Flor Dominicana L-200. From start to finish you palate will be filled with the aroma and taste of the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Sumatra wrapper, again generally speaking, is going to deliver the same consistent flavor regardless of what cigar your smoking it on.

With a small cigar that has very little tobacco to intrigue your palate some people will find this boring. Granted that the Ecuadorian Sumatra is spicy – this is really all it has going for it.

Final Verdict: La Flor Dominicana L-200 Cabinet Oscuro retails for around $6.25 and can be found online at the $4.50 price mark. This is a cigar one would buy if they like smooth cigars and/or truly enjoy the taste of Ecuadorian Sumatra. Others who strive for something more complex or demand more value for their hard earned dollars should not purchase the stogie. If you really want to try this type of cigar I would suggest getting a larger size for a couple of cents more. The tobacco then might just make this smoke worth it.

    I have to disagree with you on these…I am a fan of all the LFD Ligero Cabinet line (especially the L-400 and L-500) and find them to be quite full-flavored as well as being full-bodied. It’s possible the L-200 is not as complex as some of the larger sizes, but it does make for a very nice smoke when you don’t have as much time.

    Ah, well…different palates, eh? If we all liked the same cigars, talking and debating them would get pretty dull!
