La Flor Dominicana El Museo

After work today, my God Brother and I took a trip to our favorite Barber. I had my first haircut post Toni&Guy, which is an expensive, high end, salon in the Bond Street area of London. We then stopped by Pasta Pasta in San Mateo, where they make the most amazing pasta fresh daily. I picked up a pound of fresh red bell pepper linguini and fresh vodka cream sauce, and headed home to cook it for two minutes in boiling water. After dinner I felt like a cigar, so I retired out to the patio with a glass of Paul Masson VSOP and a $30.00 Cigar, the La Flor Dominicana “El Museo”.

The La Flor Dominicana El Museo is a limited edition cigar made by Litto Gomez and La Flor Dominicana. It comes in an amazing humidor graced with beautiful artwork by Ramon Toledo, a Cuban-American Artist, and proceeds from the cigar go to support the El Museo del Barrio, a New York Museum.

The La Flor Dominicana El Museo is beautifully constructed with a rare Habano Leaf Wrapper grown in the Dominican Republic. The cigar is a dark, rich chocolate color and is spongey to the touch. The wrapper smells of rich chocolate, cinnamon and honey in the center.

Upon lighting I was greeted with a smooth chocolate flavor blended with floral notes. The floral aspect was interesting as it was a deep rich chocolate floral blend, which was quite unique. It proceeded to add tobacco, earthiness and leather to the chocolate floral notes.

The center of the cigar maintained the rich tobacco and earthiness flavors, which were followed by the sweet chocolate floral notes. The cigar produced tons of smoke and left a sweet floral honey flavor on the palate after each puff.

The La Flor Dominicana El Museo was a very pleasant medium bodied smoke with excellent construction and a fragrant floral blend. Being that the cigar was gifted to me by Hemmingway’s Smoke Shop in Palo Alto, and that I’m not a huge Litto Gomez fan, I came into this cigar without preconceptions and without the expensive sticker shock. If you love the spicy powerful cigars of Litto Gomez, you might find this cigar a bit too mild for your tastes. Also, you might regret the expensive price tag, although at least some of the proceeds went to charity. Overall, the La Flor Dominicana El Museo was a good satisfying medium bodied cigar that I would rate at around 92 points.
