The combination of strength plus flavor presented in the Air Bender Maduro is a real treat. La Flor Dominicana is known for putting out some strong cigars, and this one follows that tradition. Spice kicks off the festivities to give a nice wake up call from the outset. It’s by no means overpowering, however. Some wood also makes an appearance in the first third. The second third offers a nice mix of sweetness, coffee, and chocolate. This is by far my favorite part of the cigar. The final third comes back with more spice, as well as leather and earth. I’d place the strength at medium to full-bodied. It has just enough kick, but strays from harshness.

I’ve been a fan of La Flor Dominicana cigars for some time, and the Air Bender Maduro has helped maintain my fandom. It supplies a good burn and a nice variety of flavors to offer an enjoyable smoking experience. Fans of La Flor Dominicana or those who enjoy full-bodied, Maduro cigars should make an effort to track down this stogie. Once again, I hope it becomes a regular release. As is, I do love the whole Casa de Tabaco concept. Each Casa de Tabaco sells for around $350.

The La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Maduro earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Padron Executive Maduro


The Padron brand is one that really needs no introduction. It has been around for a while, has garnered high ratings for several of its selections, and is seen as offering great value to cigar fans. Today I will be taking another trip down Padron lane by lighting up an Executive Maduro.

Measuring 7 ½ x 50, the Executive Maduro is just one size in a rather huge line from Padron. Sizes range from the small 4 ½ x 35 Corticos, all the way to the gargantuan 9 x 50 Magnum. The Padron Maduro is a Nicaraguan puro made completely of tobaccos from the fertile Central American nation. More specifically, the tobaccos used to construct the cigar come from Nicaragua’s Esteli region. While the Maduro version will be under the microscope for this review, the cigar also comes in a Natural version. Its strength is listed as falling into the full-bodied category.
