The Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito is a good looking cigar with an inviting, yet smallish appearance.  The wrapper is dark brown in color and features plenty of oil on the surface.  There are only a few medium-sized veins that are noticeable.  No major flaws are present.  An eye-catching decorative band sits near the head.  It displays the La Flor Dominicana name and logo over a gold, red, white, and black color scheme. The Ligero label is also stamped on the band.  The cigar's overall construction is excellent and the mini-Torpedo shape is executed perfectly.  There are zero soft spots.  As for the final pre-light characteristics, the Torpedito offers a cold taste that’s spicy and an aroma of cedar.

Once lit, the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito burns like a charm.  The draw is superb, and there is ample smoke throughout the slow burn.  The ash is long and gray in color.  The burn never strays and stays even from beginning to end.  Touch-ups and re-lights are not necessary.  This is great as I don’t have to worry about maintenance and can focus on the cigar’s variety of flavors.

One simple word to describe the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito would be flavorful.  It seems as if there is never a dull moment, and the cigar offers nice doses of complexity along with its small bursts of power.  The familiar spicy flavor is noticeable right off the bat.  Further into the first third comes some earth and cedar.  The cigar's strength kicks up a notch in the second third with stronger spice and some more cedar.  I also detect chocolate and leather here that makes for a flavorful first half.  The spice dissipates in the final third, leaving me with chocolate, molasses, and some sweetness.  This is a full-bodied cigar that offers a nice combo of flavor and strength.

I was thoroughly impressed with the La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito.  It packs plenty of flavor into its small size, and I really did not want the cigar to end.  I’d recommend it to experienced smokers looking for something flavorful that will last around 30 to 45 minutes.  It’s a good quick smoke to get you through the day during a quick break or on your ride home from work.  At about $7 per single, it’s not the cheapest small stogie you will find, but if you are willing to splurge for a great smoking experience, go for it.

The La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Torpedito earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
