The problem with a lot of powerful cigars is that they're all bang and no balance. Here's one shining exception - La Flor Dominicana Colorado Oscuro.
Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of pepper and spice here, but there's also a lot more going on, so this is no one-trick pony. A gorgeous dark red Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that shimmers with oils graces this cigar, concealing a Dominican Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. While there's lots of bold flavors, they're counterbalanced by a dried fruit sweetness with touches of citrus and leather. If you want a cigar that commands your attention but has great balance and complexity, this is one you have to try.
