La Flor Dominicana 452 Maduro Review

Blogger Dave B.

La Flor Dominicana 452 Maduro4 x 52 Perfecto, nice shape, well made.

Oily Sheen like many deep, dark, La Flors, make sit look very tasty.

Light beautiful. Great even burn, cigar remained nicely soft in my fingers, tasted peppery. Ash did not hang quite long enough for my liking, but fell into the ashtray cutting back to the glowing embers in perfect fashion. I had to relight it once and that was no problem at all. If you enjoy full bodied smokes like I do, this is a must try. It's flavorful, but very smooth.

I would rate this as high as any cigar I've smoked...but I am a La Flor I am biased!

Oliva Connecticut Review

Oliva Connecticut Reserve
Ring Gauge: 50
Length: 5.00
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
MSRP: $4.50

Tasting notes: Smoked while working at Rocky's Cigars. Excellent aesthetics. Well made, Conn wrapper is perfect. Light easily.

Mild, smooth first taste.

Nice Aroma, first Third, ash very salt n pepper in appearance. Stayed lit even after put down to wait on customers. I had one relight and it went perfect, no change in taste. I'm an Oliva fan, so this one is going into my rotation, even though I'm a smoker of more full bodied cigars.
