Moving on, the flavor of the Light Gobernador is enjoyable and smooth, but not too complex. It begins with sweetness right off the bat. Soon, creamy and mild spicy notes join in to complete the first third. The second third continues with a sweet and creamy profile. Some nuts are also detected here. The final third is a tasty blend of coffee, nuts, and more sweetness. This is definitely a mild cigar as promised.

Overall, the La Flor Dominicana Light was solid. It offered a nice presentation and burn, plus the flavors were soothing. I recommend picking up a single if you want to try a cigar that’s different from most La Flor Dominicana offerings. The Light’s mildness should appeal to beginners and those who love smooth cigars. Light one up and pair it with a cup of coffee to see if you enjoy it as a start to your morning. If you opt for the Gobernador, make sure you have enough time to enjoy it, as it is a large cigar. A single sells for around $9, and you can also find it in boxes of 25.

The La Flor Dominicana Light Gobernador earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Drew Estate Undercrown Corona Viva


Drew Estate released its Undercrown Corona Viva around May of this year, making it the sixth offering in the line. The Undercrown line has a pretty interesting background, as it was supposedly created by Drew Estate rollers as an alternative to the popular Liga Privada. The rollers were apparently smoking too many of the Liga Privadas, which put a strain on distribution efforts. So, they tweaked the Liga Privada’s formula a bit in terms of the tobacco plant primings used, turning the Undercrown into an entirely new line for them and the smoking public to enjoy.

The Undercrown Corona Viva measures 5 5/8 x 46. Other sizes in the line include the 5 x 54 Robusto, 6 x 52 Belicoso, 6 x 52 Gran Toro, 6 x 60 Gordito, and the 7 x 54 Corona Doble. Its filler is made up of Brazilian Mata Fina and Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobaccos. Next comes a T52 Connecticut River Valley Stalk Cut and Cured Habano binder. Last, but not least, is a San Andreas Otapan Negro Ultimo Corte wrapper. The Drew Estate Undercrown is listed as being medium to full-bodied in strength.
