This cigar is a gorgeous churchill in a bright, emerald-green wrapper. The draw is close to perfect, the construction and density just about perfect. I find this a medium-full smoke, and having just finished one feel slightly woozy. The flavor is very different from virtually any other cigar I've had in my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed every puff. It does have a somewhat vegetal, grassy flavor, but also a deep, rich, earthy tobacco flavor you'd expect from a quality cigar. LFD has yet to disappoint me, but I think that, to me, this surpasses even the Double Ligero maduro. If it were more affordable, it would likely constitute the bulk of my humidor's contents. This is a cigar which might go better with an oolong or even green tea than with coffee, and if you are a drinker (I've given up the sauce) might actually complement a quality saison beer like Hennepin or Foret. Thoroughly recommended unless you inherently dislike candela.
