Created in 2014 to celebrate 20 years in the premium cigar industry, La Flor Dominicana 1994 Beer Stein cigars feature a Mexican San Andreas wrapper over perfectly aged Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. A full flavored treat for every connoisseur, this beauty seduces the palate with full flavored notes of black pepper, sweet spice, coffee, earth, and creamy-smooth caramel. 20 of these luxury cigars come to you in a gorgeous and highly collectible German-style beer stein.
Covered in a toothy espresso brown wrapper that has a reddish tint to it, the La Flor Dominicana 1994 Beer Stein has absolutely no oil at all. There is a bit of give when squeezed, and the binder and filler protrude just a tad from the foot. Aroma from the wrapper is distinct dark chocolate, oak, hay, leather and earth, while the cold draw brings flavors of oak, sweet raisons, cocoa and black pepper.
The La Flor Dominicana 1994 Beer Stein starts off with flavors of sweet oak, leather, almonds, earth and dark fruit. The profile is fairly creamy overall so far, and I taste a really nice caramel sweetness on the retrohale at certain points that combines quite well with the black pepper that is also present. The construction is excellent so far, with the draw being the standout in that regard, and smoke production is well above average. The strength is milder then I expected so far, and hits a point just below medium by the end of the first third.
