The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero is not only one of LFD's most well-known brands, but one of the most iconic cigars on the premium cigar market as a whole! Double Ligero is a blend that, as the name states, boasts a second helping of Dominican ligero tobacco—i.e. the strongest tobacco priming grown by La Flor Dominicana on their farms throughout the Dominican Republic. This cigar has largely contributed to LFD's reputation as a leader in the realm of full-strength smoking experiences, burning with a dark and sinister profile for the veteran smoking palate.
The LFD Double Ligero has evolved over the years, now boasting a wide range of sizes and perhaps an equally diverse range of wrapper varieties. However, the most consistent version of this acclaimed blend showcases an Ecuadorian Sumatran wrapper, offered in varying wrapper shades. Under the hood, the Double Ligero contains estate-grown Dominican leaves throughout the binder and filler—most notably containing the thick and potent ligero primings from La Flor Dominicana's prized tobacco farms of the Dominican Republic.
