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.

 

This will be a short review with Thanksgiving just a few days away.

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.

I am reading many, many great things about this cigar. The flavor profile sounds amazing, but the strength???

Comment by Catfishbluezz on November 26, 2014 at 8:51am

LFD is always too strong for me, which sucks, because I actually like his blending.

This is a really good cigar.  Tried em too soon when they were first released and thought it was ho hum but when I revisited this cigar more than a month later I was very pleased (likely needed a little time to acclimate in proper humidity). 

My only wish is they had a more a traditional toro size or a long robusto as the 6.5 inch toro is slightly longer than I like and the robusto is a bit shorter than I prefer.

Hay Catfish...this is not strong like your regular LFD's.  Its a true medium bodied cigar, and you may get some enjoyment out of it.

Short because of Thanksgiving tomorrow? What does that even mean? We all know you don't have to do anything to prepare? Taking hottub time away? Gotta dress the baby like a turkey? #Comeonson

Great short review though!

Bass - you will need to for sure. The cigar is LEGIT.

Doc - it isn't that bad. It is strong, but on a full stomach, you would be fine.

Catfish - you p**** :)

Ky70 - agreed. The five cigars I smoked over a couple of weeks kept getting better and better. I think these will age wonderfully.

Jose - Man Angel's always think alike :)

Cat- I smoked one of these when they first came out and it was medium strength at best, the mildest LFD I have smoked (although I havent smoke the Suave).

The sample I smoked had absolutely flawless construction, one of the best burn, draw, ash on a cigar that I can remember. In the flavor dept. it wasnt as great it was like an 88 in flavor and 99 in construction....imo these are 92, but I smoked one ROTT, it may have needed rest to bring out the flavors (medium body/strength) best cigar out of DR right now imo.

Charlie - are you saying you would rank flavor an 88 or saying the flavor was better in the illusione 88?
