We have two highly rated cigars to review today here on Puff.com, beginning with the La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel and ending with the Casa Magna Colorado Extraordinario.

La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel

Litto Gomez of La Flor Dominicana has a thing for chisels, but what’s behind his use of such a unique Figurado shape for some of his cigars?  It all goes back to his career as a jeweler, and he decided to bring the shape to his Oro line.  From the looks of it, the move was a successful one, as the Oro Chisel is a very highly rated cigar since its debut at the 2012 IPCPR show in Orlando.  Although this isn’t the first time I’ve tried a Chisel from La Flor Dominicana, I’m intrigued once again, as I do like the shape.  With that being said, is the Oro Chisel’s lofty reputation earned?  I’m about to find out.

The La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel measures 6 x 54.  It has a filler and binder made up of Dominican tobaccos.  The wrapper, meanwhile, is of the Nicaraguan Habano variety.  Just as a reference, Litto Gomez said the Oro Chisel’s blend is an amped up version of his Coronado blend, so it’s no surprise that its strength is listed as full-bodied.

In terms of appearance, you’ll have trouble finding a better looking stick than the Oro Chisel.  After taking the cigar out of its attractive golden tube, its unique shape is obviously what stands out the most, but it’s not just for looks, as the chisel shape actually makes it very easy and comfortable to rest the cigar’s tip in between your teeth.  The wrapper is dark brown with a slight reddish tint and a bit of oil on the surface.  There are a few medium sized veins here and there, but no major imperfections.  The cigar has a bit of give when pressed.  A large decorative band near the middle displays the La Flor Dominicana name and logo, as well as the Oro moniker.  Its use of gold accents is quite pleasing to the eye.  As for the pre-light aroma, I pick up some spiciness, while the cold taste is of wood.

After lighting, the La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel burns with ease.  The easy draw is relaxing and produces a ton of smoke.  The ash is a tad flaky and gray in color.  The burn line remains even throughout the smoking experience without the need for any touch-ups.  The same holds true for re-lights.
