La Flor Dominicana's Colorado Oscuro blend debuted in the summer of 2011 to much fanfare, being limited in scope to only two shipments per year due to the limited nature of the cigar's select wrapper leaf.
As evidenced by the title, La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro boasts a darker shade of the conventional Colorado wrapper, being harvested from a Sumatran seed in Ecuador. This is backed by an additional Sumatran-based binder, sourced from the Dominican Republic. Finally, the cigar is primarily built of Nicaraguan and Dominican leaves at its core.
LFD Colorado Escuro is unsurprisingly full in body (as the company has become known over the years), leaping onto the palate upon first light with heaps of pepper spice. This nostril-stinging zest eventually pulls back, offering a dark and sweet concoction of dark cocoa, espresso, leather, and an irresistible cinnamon sweetness.
