The Don Leo brand has been a longstanding presence and is quite well respected in the Dominican community. The line is hand made with long-filler, Dominican Olor fillers as well as a Cuban-seed Dominican binder and features a spicy USA Connecticut Shade wrapper. Produced in the Cibao Valley, the brand has been rated in the high 80's in Cigar Aficionado and offers a classic Dominican smoking experience.
This claro colored cigar is truly a beautiful display of craftsmanship. We found it silky to the touch, slightly oily, well rolled with just the right firmness and generally very appealing. We couldn't wait to light it. Smoke pulled through the cigar very well and it burned slowly and evenly. Look for a very smooth, mild to medium-bodied tasting cigar with a classic Dominican spicy character, with some hints of cocoa bean. You'll also note a prevalent woodiness throughout the smoke. Look for a cedar finish. Overall, plenty of smoke and taste. We really liked it! Consider pairing it with a malty Bock.
