Name: La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Maduro 660
Country: Dominican Republic
Size: 4 5/8 inches x 60
When it comes to LFD’s Double Ligero, my favorite is the Chisel Maduro, but the 660 is also good.
I smoked it with a glass of Havana Club Barrel Proof and enjoyed it while reading a book. The book I’m reading this week is one by Daniel Susskind called A World Without Work. It pairs well with bull-bodied cigars. It talks about artificial intelligence and automation, how they are and will be replacing humans at work, and how we should respond. An important book to read in 2023.
Branding: My eyes are used to the LFD bands by now. I smoked so many of their cigars that I’ve become very familiar with them.
Construction: The Double Ligero Maduro 660 is a well-constructed cigars. It is firm and has no weak spots.
Pre-light: Tongue detects sweetness that reminds me of Lebanese simple syrup (ater).
Cut: As almost always, I give my parejo a straight cut. No issues there at all.
Burn: Even burn all the way.
Duration: A good 90 minutes. But if I weren’t reading a book and only there for a cigar, I could have finished it in 60 minutes or so.
Smoke: I get a more beautiful smoke smoking the Chisel Maduro mentioned above, but the 660’s smoke is alright, too.
Ash: Nothing to complain about here.
Flavor: Strong. Notes of leather, licorice, chocolate milk, molasses, pepper.
