La Flor Dominicana Reserva Especial El Jocko
La Flor Dominicana Reserva Especial El Jocko cigars take the wonderful flavor and aroma of La Flor Dominicana cigars to a whole new level of cigar-smoking pleasure. This special 'Reserve' blend consists of a flawless, Ecuadorian Connecticut seed wrapper that surrounds Dominican Piloto Cubano longfiller and a rich-tasting Nicaraguan binder. The result is an exceptionally flavorful cigar that is full-bodied with an intriguing complexity. A 'must try' for more experienced cigar smokers.
This is my favorite small maduro cigar; the reason is taste and aroma.The taste and the light aroma are full but not overpowering, with hints of black cherry.The taste is complex with a fine, mellow aftertaste.This is not a full-bodied nor a spicey cigar, try a Honduran brand for that.The prelight aroma is earthy, wonderful.The construction is consistent and firm.The volume of smoke is abundant for such a small cigar.The draw is easy.The shape is novel.In short, it is my favorite maduro shorty.
I would take issue with the smoke shop's description as this being a "mild" cigar.I find it full bodied with good strength. Another favorite of mine from LFD.
Well I am no expert, but I am experimenting more and more with cigars. This one is a beauty, the pre-light smell was delicious, nutty and almost chocolate. I wanted to bite it. It primarily smoked well, except needed a little work near the half point. Lots of flavours, woody, earthy, and a sweetness like cherry (I think). I will say that it was quite strong for a rookie like me and I had quite a buzz.
