A Smaller La Volcada Coming From La Flor Dominicana

Nov 7, 2018 | By Gregory Mottola
A Smaller La Volcada Coming From La Flor Dominicana

When La Flor Dominicana released the La Volcada brand in 2017, it only came in one size: a 7 inch by 48 ring gauge Churchill. Next year, La Flor will be adding a small corona size to the La Volcada line. It’s going to measure 4 1/4 inches by 32 ring gauge, and packed in tins of six, but prices have yet to be determined. 

“With regard to price and name, we haven’t gotten that far just yet,” Tony Gomez of La Flor Dominicana told Cigar Aficionado. “We just love the size. And much like the Petite La Nox, it just makes sense, as over time we accumulated wrappers that aren’t big enough for the original La Volcada, so a petite version allows us to make use of them.”

La Volcada is covered in a dark, Mexican San Andrés wrapper with a tightly coiled cap. The filler tobacco is all grown on Litto Gomez’s La Canela farm in the Dominican Republic, while the binder is a leaf of Ecuadoran Corojo. The new size will not have a pigtail cap.

La Volcada refers to a tango dance step of the same name. The cigar band shows an illustration of dancers gracefully performing the volcada.
