Lempira Fuerte

I apologize to all you ash-holes for not getting a post up on Monday. Last weekend was jam packed, and although I smoked a ton of cigars, I just never had the chance to sit down and put a review together. But today I’m back with a cigar that I had never heard of until a couple of weeks ago. This cigar is the Lempira Fuerte and it comes from Casa Fernandez/Tabacalera Tropical. The only background information I have on this cigar is that the name Lempira comes from a cigar that was out during the cigar boom of the 1990’s. In 2004 Casa Fernandez revived the name.

Name: Lempira Fuerte
Company: Casa Fernandez/Tabacalera Tropical
Made in: Danli, Honduras
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano Maduro
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Price: $7.50 per stick
Comes in: Boxes of 20
Vitola: Torpedo (6 1/2″ X 54)

The Lempira Fuerte is a nice looking cigar. The wrapper is extremely dark and has a slightly oily feel. The veings are small and not noticable to the touch. However, there are a lot of veins to look at. The stick feels firm in the hand, and I was unable to detect and hard or soft spots. Overall the construction on this cigar seemed top notch. Th wrapper had a heavy barnyard aroma with an equally heavy smell of manure. The foot aroma was slightly lighter, but maintained a similar barnyard quality. Pre-light draw seemed dead on, so I was anxious to spark this cigar up.

I’m not going to go into great detail on how this cigar smoked, however I will say that it was a lack luster cigar. Despite the appearance of excellent construction, I struggled to get the Lempira to burn correctly. After a few attempts to get this cigar to burn straight I gave up and allowed the crooked burn to continue. The flavors didn’t start of bad, in fact I’d say they were nice. A combination of toasted nuts and chocolate made for a nice start, but I felt that there was something lacking. As I smoked further into the cigar a terrible bitterness began appear, that quickly became the most identifiable flavor in the cigar.

The Lempira Fuerte really let me down. Judging from the construction and the aroma I thought I was in for a treat. Sadly, I was left with a bitter cigar that did nothing but burn way off kilter. When all was said and done I felt as though I had overpaid for these cigars. I even sampled different vitolas from various boxes hoping to have better luck but had similar results. I rarely say a cigar is not worth trying, but in the case of the Lempira Fuerte I’d recommend saving your money.
