After Toast:

First Third – The palate is greeted with strong pepper out of the gate followed by a cream, oiled leather, and spice. The burn is pristine and ash held strong through the third.

Second Third – The leather, cream, pepper all hang on through the transition, but the cigar gets a real rich earthy tone at this point. The pepper strengthens in intensity as this third progresses. The burn remained sharp and the ash fell around the 3-inch mark.

Final Third – The cream, leather, pepper and earth notes carry over to the finish. A true full-bodied experience in the final third. The burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Glenmorangie

Wine – Terazzas de Los Andes Malbec

Overall Experience:

I think the La Flor Dominicana La Volcada is another hit for the LFD guys. This cigar had a very pronounced flavor profile with 4-5 distinct flavors packed in to the experience. The one thing I liked is that the flavors did not alternate in and out during the smoking experience. For the most part, they were all present throughout the smoke, but just in different sequences and strength. I really enjoyed this!
