The NFL season is heading into Week 10 and while the Super Bowl is still months away, La Flor Dominicana already knows what cigar they’ll be sending to Florida retailers to celebrate the annual big game.
Since 2015, La Flor Dominicana has created a special, limited-edition cigar to be sold only by La Flor Dominicana retailers in the host state of the Super Bowl. This season’s Super Bowl takes place on February 2, 2020, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Starting the first week of January, retailers in Florida will receive the La Flor Dominicana 2020 Special Football Edition. The cigar measures 6 1/2 inches by 58 ring gauge, which is the same dimensions as last year’s release. However, whereas the 2019 edition was box-pressed, this new smoke is a parejo.
The 2020 Special Football Edition is covered in Ecuador Habano wrapper with binder and filler from the Dominican Republic. The intricate football pattern near the foot of the cigar is made from Ecuador Habano maduro tobacco.
The cigar comes packed in 10-count boxes and carries a retail price of $17 per cigar.
Like all La Flor Dominicana cigars, the 2020 Special Football Edition is rolled at the La Flor Dominicana factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.
