altWe have two cigars to review today that are quite different from one another.  We’ll get things started with the large and powerful La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger and finish up with the smooth Quesada Jalapa Robusto.

La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger

La Flor Dominicana has several bold cigars under their umbrella, but perhaps none is bolder than the Meaner Digger.  It was released on December 21, 2012, the day when some people thought the world would end.  Luckily, it didn’t and we are still around to enjoy cigars like this one.  Now, if you are not a fan of big cigars, this is certainly not the smoke for you, as the Meaner Digger is huge.  Beyond its size, the cigar is also very limited and was distributed to just the Tobacco Haven store in New Hampshire.  Only 2,012 cigars were produced – 20 boxes of 10 and one special box of 12 that was signed by Litto Gomez himself.  I didn’t get my hands on that special box, but I did get a single Meaner Digger to sample, so let’s see how this baby burns.

I said that the La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger was a huge cigar, and with measurements of 10 x 60, I was not lying.  In addition to this large, eye-catching size, the cigar has a barber pole design.  Its filler and binder are composed of Dominican Double Ligero tobacco.  The wrapper, meanwhile, gets its barber pole design from a combination of Ecuadorian Sun Grown Maduro and Natural tobaccos.  The strength of the Meaner Digger is described as full-bodied.

The La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger is one cigar that is definitely worth looking over prior to lighting.  Its size will definitely open your eyes, and the barber pole look is very attractive.  There’s a decent amount of oil and some medium-sized veins.  I don’t notice any major imperfections.  The cigar feels firm, and it obviously has a lot of weight to it as well.  The band near the head is the typical La Flor Dominicana band that features the company name and logo.  Double Ligero is also stamped on the front.  The red, gold, black, and white colors all combine nicely to give the cigar an aesthetic boost, not that it really needs one.  There’s a sweet aroma before lighting and a spicy cold taste.

After preparing myself mentally for this big cigar and deciding to finally smoke it, the Meaner Digger burns well.  The draw is good and there’s plenty of smoke.  Due to the size of the cigar, some re-lights are necessary.  I also need a few minor touch-ups, but other than that, the burn behaves nicely.  If you have little time to spare, this is not the right choice, as smoking time for the Meaner Digger is around four hours total.
