20 Year Cigar From La Flor Dominicana

Jun 17, 2014 | By David Savona
20 Year Cigar From La Flor Dominicana

Twenty years ago, Litto Gomez began rolling cigars in a cramped and modest factory in the Dominican Republic. Today, he is preparing to release an ornate smoke celebrating 20 years in business, made in his picturesque and anything but modest cigar factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.

La Flor Dominicana's 20 year cigar (the final name has yet to be determined) will be released in unique packaging, not surprising for Gomez, who has become one of the most creative cigarmakers in the business. The packaging will be a porcelain beer stein reminiscent of an Oktoberfest celebration.

The cigars are going to be made of a core of Dominican tobaccos grown by Gomez, who has evolved into not only a cigarmaker, but a farmer. The wrappers will be dark leaves grown in Mexico's San Andrés Valley, which have only appeared on one other La Flor Dominicana cigar, the Factory Press IV.

Gomez, who owns and operates La Flor Dominicana with his wife, Ines Lorenzo-Gomez, said they hoped to have the cigars on the market by September, with a limited production run of 60,000 cigars, 20 in each jar.

For more on the anniversary cigar, see the June 17 issue of Cigar Insider.

"Great idea. Excellent time come fall to put them out in the Octoberfest style stein. Exciting year with Padron putting out their special cigar as well. Great coverage. " —June 17, 2014 17:55 PM
