The La Flor Dominicana 1994 is the newest cigar from LFD, which released at IPCPR 2014. This regular production cigar pays honor to Lito Gomez’s 20 years in the cigar business.
The LFD 1994 comes in four different vitolas which range in price from $7.5 to $8.3.

Quick Note: For this review we used my rating system. You can view it in detail here.
This is one of the cigars I almost didn’t purchase to smoke, but am SO glad I did. If you are a fan of San Andres and cigars that tip the scales on strength, you will enjoy this cigar.
Really everything about the 1994 is perfect; the construction, combustion, presentation, I mean everything.
The flavor profile in right in my wheelhouse and has notes of black cherry, earth, leather, black pepper, citrus, jalapeno, anise, and a fruity sweetness. The flavors are constantly changing and the 1994 does a wonderful job of showing off how DR tobacco can still bring strength. Without a doubt the LFD can be called multi-dimensional and complex.
The cigar has just a notch under the LFD Double Ligero in terms of strength, but is a far better cigar in terms of complexity and balance.
I think this might be one of the best cigars ever released from LFD. I think it even gives the Lito Gomez Small Batch’s a run for their money.
This is a cigar you must try if you love cigars which have strength and flavor to match. Easily one of the best new releases I have smoked during 2014.
Overall Rating: 95 aka “Box Purchase”
