laflorlimit1 A couple of 2012 IPCPR releases are on tap for today’s reviews, so keep reading to find out what the La Flor Dominicana Limitado V and the Aging Room Quattro F55 Espressivo have to offer.

 

La Flor Dominicana Limitado V

The La Flor Dominicana Limitado V was unveiled during this year’s IPCPR show in Orlando. As you can probably tell from its name, the Limitado V is a limited release from the brand. The V is actually La Flor Dominicana’s fifth release in the Limitado series, which they have traditionally made available every two years. With production limited to just 2,000 boxes, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a single Limitado V, so let’s light it up to see what it has to offer.

The La Flor Dominicana Limitado V measures 6 ½ x 54. It begins with a filler blend of Dominican tobaccos and a Nicaraguan binder. Topping off the composition is an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. As a side note, the Limitado V is based off of the original release, but comes with its own little tweaks to remain unique. As for its strength, the Limitado V is described as a powerful cigar in the full-bodied range.

At first glance, I am drawn by the pair of decorative bands near the cigar’s head. The top band features the La Flor Dominicana name and logo, while the one right beneath it showcases the Limitado V name. The red, black, and gold colors look great against the cigar’s dark, mottled body. The Limitado V has an oily appearance and some medium-sized running throughout its body. It is firm to the touch and lacks any soft spots. Prior to lighting, I detect a sweet and chocolaty cold taste and an aroma of wood.

The La Flor Dominicana Limitado V lights with ease and has a draw that is as good as I could hope for. A plentiful amount of smoke fills the room and the light gray ash is solid. A couple of touchups are needed here and there but nothing major. Overall, I’d call the burn satisfactory.

Dear Sirs:

I think you need to expand the basis of your scoring system, say to at least 10. It is not possible to express the subtle differences with only 20% point increments to judge by. This would mean that many cigars would get a 4 star rating, yet they could be much different in quality and value. A 100 point scale would allow for the subtle difference to mean something.
