Review: La Flor Dominicana Mysterio


I have to admit, the first thing I thought when I saw one of these was “Opus X Knock off” based solely on the fact that it looks kinda like a BBMF or another one of those HTF sticks. The stick is sold in boxes of 5, and it is a nice presentation for sure, a 7×54 Perfecto with a Maduro wrapped foot and (beehive like) cap…

It is a densely packed stick, very firm to the touch, and very little oil at all on the wrapper. After cutting the tip and lighting, I found the draw to be a bit rough until about 1/3rd through where it evened out…The taste immediately after lighting was chocolate and a little pepper, but changed to toasted nuts, espresso and spice after the Maduro tip…flavors were pretty consistent for the whole stick…

The burn was great all the way through, and although it got a little harsh at the end, I was able to nub it…

Alot of the Litto sticks I have smoked recently have been more in the “Medium” range then the “Full” range that he has become known for, and this is no exception…Smoking time was 1 hour, 32 minutes…

The Bottom Line: I liked this stick, but I would definitely classify it as a “Medium” smoke…it is great to look at, and easy to smoke, with nice even flavors, but for about the same money I could pick up any number of other, better sticks (the LFD Small Batch #2 among them, a Superior stick in every way…that is, if you can find them). A good smoke, but I won’t go out of my way to get more…



The Final Score: 80
