To achieve these cigars, the crown jewel of the line, estate grown Ligero tobacco from La Flor's own fields is aged for years. The result is an unmatched cigar - very full bodied, yet remarkably flavourful and rich. The reception of these cigars has garnered attention and praise from the world's most discriminating aficionados.
The Chisel and Chiselito shapes by Litto Gomez offer a unique smoking experience.
The LFD Double Ligero Chisel Maduro is an intriguing cigar.
The top of the cigar is meant to be laid flat, then using a cigar punch, you open it for smoking slightly lower than the head of the cigar. This allows for a unique smoking perspective. I tried it, and moved the cigar around my mouth, twisting it so the hole was hitting different areas of my palate; even holding like a flute to see what kind of experience came from smoking a cigar this way. The result, a fascinating smoking moment on my balcony.
With punching a cigar, it's always a more streamlined smoke so, I ended up using a guillotine to finish the cigar as I wanted more of the flavour and nuances.
