“First and foremost, this is a cigar that must be retrohaled to be appreciated. The smoke on the palate is fine but the vanilla essence in the sinuses for the final two third made me want more. I could see this as the perfect way to kill an hour with friends at a BBQ or in conversation. It won’t pull all of your attention away from the people and times you’re enjoy. Hell it might even enhance them. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“I think in a smaller viola I would have been in love. The experience is a little too long to keep me fully engaged from start to finish due to the lack of a real dynamic change in profile. Still, it’s well worth your money and time. Great flavors, excellent construction, and a well made product puts this well into the buy and smoke again category. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“Despite my reporting that the flavors were one dimensional, I am not beating up on the cigar. There is nothing wrong with a cigar being one dimensional. Sometimes you just want to smoke and not have to think about it. They are made for relaxation anyway right? I would definitely smoke this cigar again to compare notes.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | 25th Anniversary

“I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There’s a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it’s nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)
