The draw was perfect with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
The cigar began with cedar, mustiness and black pepper with a short visit of cream. As it progressed, the black pepper went away as some char and toastiness joined the cedar. The final third had an increase in char along with some bitterness. The burn was an issue with multiple re-lights required although the draw was great. Strength level was right around medium the whole way. I couldn’t really tell any flavor additions when it burned through the areas that had the added lighter tobacco on the wrapper. Overall, the La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019 was fairly average and not likely something I’d want to track down more of. The cigar was released for an event, and I suppose it would work for smoking during the game as it had a long smoking time. Paired with your favorite libation during the game may provide some nice enjoyment, but on it’s own, I’d pass (and it would be an incompletion).
