After Toast:

First Third – A nice cedar and spice followed by an earthy finish begins this smoke with subtle pepper building in the background. About halfway through the third, a light chocolate note surfaces intermittently between the cedar, spice and pepper notes.  The burn started a bit wavy and ash held on through this third.

Second Third – The cedar, spice and pepper notes continue into this third however the cigar begins to get real rich and earthy at this point. A nice change of course that was previewed on the finish in the beginning. The burn remained wavy and ash fell right after the start of this third.

Final Third – The cedar and spice come rushing back with vengeance followed by the pepper and earth shifting back to the finish.

Overall Experience:

The La Flor Dominicana 1994 was a great medium plus experience with a pretty simple yet refined flavor profile that was rich on the palate. This brand makes great cigars and this is just another one of those must try sticks within their line.
