La Flor Dominicana Ligero L-Granú

La Flor Dominicana Ligero L-Granú
This La Flor Dominicana Ligero L-Granú 6x64 beast came from Cigar Train on my last weekly visit. I've wanted to smoke an LFD cigar for some time now, but this was the first chance I've had grab one. Let's see how it goes.

It's a huge cigar, but it has some of the best construction I've seen. The oily maduro colored wrapper is seamless and contains only a few very fine veins. The cigar is firmly packed full length and offers a rich fermented tobacco aroma from the foot. Switching to the other end, the free cold draw has notes of ripe tree fruit mixed with spicy Spanish Cedar.

Once the massive foot was toasted and burning, the initial medium bodied flavors were a mix of chai tea and white pepper spice. Delicious! As the cigar burned on there were other flavors of oak, cocoa, leather, charcoal, molasses, caramel, cream and sugar. However, this gargantuan wasn't with out it's problems.

As the wrapper developed a deep oily gloss, the burn started to wander. I had to correct the burn twice, just before the half way point and right at the band. The Ligero L-Granú finished it's seventy minute burn with a bold, full bodied blast of barnyard.

Overall this was a great cigar. It had a very complex flavor mix and superior construction. It's to bad this one was plagued with burn problems. I'd still like to find a few of these in smaller sizes to try out.
