LFD event/weekend review; January 29-31, 2010

.
We attended the La Flor Dominicana event at the Tobacco Merchant on Friday night (1/29/10). I took advantage of the buy 3 get 1 free deal on the DL-700 maduros. In the above pic I am enjoying one!
.
Manny Stamathis, the LFD rep, was not able to attend due to an illness. I hope he gets well soon. We missed you Manny!
.
There was a great crowd of people attending the event. The shop was busy all night. Of course, my gang was in attendance.

Speaking of the humidor, it is packed with cigars! Bill has really increased inventory. You have a tough selection process once you enter the humidor!

Now, on to some of the other attendees...

Perdomo 2 Limited Edition '08 torpedo (6 1/4 x 54)
.
.
This is a rectangular square pressed cigar. It had a combination of sweet citrus and cinnamon spice with pepper. It was medium bodied and had a long, sweet finish with peppery vanilla notes. The finish is very satisfying. The thick vanilla spice coats your tongue and lingers on and on. The combination of citrus and cinnamon spice is a winner! This is a very enjoyable cigar that I recommend.

Score: 92

Montecristo 75th Anniversary no. 2 (6x52)
.
.
This cigar was made to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Montecristo. These are a very limited production and they retail for around $15 and up!
.
The cigar looked to be very well made with a dark reddish brown wrapper. The cigar felt dense. The draw was perfect! It started off with a cinnamon notes and quickly transformed into heavy citrus notes with vanilla undertones. There was a nice amount of pepper. The finish is long with light sweet citrus and vanilla notes. The cigar stayed consistent throughout. This is one of the better non-Cuban Monte's that I've had. It was a very enjoyable cigar.
.
Score: 90
