http://smokinghotcigarchick.com A powerful cigar with a great balance, the Air Bender is the latest blend from La Flor Dominicana. The first time I heard the name of this cigar the show Avatar: The Last Air Bender came to mind. I believe this cigars gets its name from an appreciation of the martial arts (as does the cartoon’s inspiration). The only thing I had heard about this blend was that it was to be a very strong and powerful one. To be honest, I was not certain what to expect from that description alone.
Upon my first draw there was an instant hit of flavor and full body; the first few puffs gave me a strong feeling of pepper with a peppery sweetness through the nose. Now, after those first few puffs the spice and pepper mellowed into a woody style of flavor that kept through most of the cigar. The flavor through the nose was very pleasant with a distinct hint of sweetness I found very delicious. At the last third, the body and strength began to build up for more intensity. I am very curious to taste this cigar again after a little time in the humidor, though I will most likely give it another taste again even sooner.
There are four sizes currently available, the one I smoked in this video is “The Maestro”, a 5.5 x 52 cigar. I would love to hear your thoughts and tasting experiences with this cigar.
