Air Bender in Robusto by La Flor Dominicana (LFD)


Air Bender, Ecuadorian Habano, La Flor Dominicana, LFDFinally, there we have it! My La Flor Dominicana, Air Bender, Matatan (Robusto) has finally become smokeable since I received them last July (2018). That’s 7-months of resting until finally, I get a flawless smoking experience.

Perfect draw, no tarring at the last third; full of flavor and smooth all the way through. #SakamotoHappy

Perhaps I should order more so that they’ll be ready when I am. I only have a small handful of these left.

Today’s full-bodied smoke brought you by “Air Bender” Matatan (5 x 50) by La Flor Dominicana

The La Flor Dominicana cigars will be a permanent fixture in my TupperDor from now on. These were very affordable at the time I found them. The ones that I’ve smoked start with a tight draw that delivers black pepper and a deep earthiness. For this cigar, at about the last 3rd, the draw opened up and I finally got to enjoy the following chewy smoke the way I imagined it was intended to be.

In the recent past, I had been experiencing weird to difficult draws with the previous Air Benders I’ve smoked toward the final third. It was either too mushy or too soft and thus hard to draw. This time, after a couple of touch-ups, no draw issues, I received the sought-after mouthful of delicious smoke.

These have been resting since July of 2018, this year.

Lovin’ it
Stay Smokey
