the burn the draw the strenth is the best i have smoked in years. if they stop making these i will stop smoking ! its that good.
This is one of my favorite cigars and the best in the LFD Double Ligero line. The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chruchill Especiale Oscuro takes as long to smoke as it does to say. It's full of flavor, but don't let the smooth taste fool you. You can tell from the pre-light that this is not a cigar for a newbee or or a mild-medium smoker. The leather, pepper and earth can initially mask the power of the ligero binder and filler. But what I like best is the added richness of the oscuro wrapper. This is a handsome, well constructed, even burning smoke that you will love. If you can handle it!
This has to be one of the biggest disappointments of my cigar purchasing life. Not only do the majority of these over-priced cigars fail to remain lit, they burn so hot I simply douse them with water and throw them away. I would say that about 75% of the one's I have smoked so far have been garbage. Every once in awhile I get a good one. I'm just glad I only bought one box of these disasters. I thought that after 2 months in the humidor they would be better... nope. I get way better cigars for half the money. My suggestion is to save your cash for something else.
For sitting outside next to the pool on a summer night with a nice cup of coffee, after a great BBQ, the Especiales caps off the night just right. Flavor is consistent, draws and burns nicely all the way down with hardly any bitterness at the end. A favorite!
