La Flor Dominicana Limitado V

La Flor Dominicana has released their fifth release of their  The cigar is appropriately title – the La Flor Dominicana Limitado V. La Flor Dominicana has averaged about two years between Limitado releases and it has been almost three years since there has been one – therefore, this is a cigar that is going to be sought after.  This proves to be one outstanding cigar.

The Limitado V has been positioned as being based off the original Limitado I blend.  Like the Limitado I, it leverages an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.  The leaf for the wrapper is a ligero leaf.   The binder is Nicaraguan and the filler is all Dominican (this differs from the Limitado I which used Dominican binder and filler).

Our experience with the flavor profile was very similar to what was delivered with the pre-release sample.  It is a complex flavor profile that consists of pepper, chocolate, coffee, nut, and citrus flavors.  The flavors are on the upper end of medium to full-bodied.   The strength for the most part is medium to full, but toward the end that La Flor Dominicana ligero kicks in and it becomes full strength.

The Limitado V also has outstanding construction – with an outstanding burn and draw.
