Litto Gomez has released a small-batch Cameroon cigar. Packaged in boxes of 50, the bandless Cameroon Cabinet cigars are available at select cigar retailers. Only 500,000 sticks will be made.
"We had them before, but I stopped making them three years ago," said Litto Gomez, co-owner of La Flor Dominicana Cigars. "I decided to let the Cameroon wrapper age a few years, so now the Cameroon is four years old."
The cigar consists of a Dominican and Nicaraguan filler held together by a Dominican binder enveloped in a Cameroon wrapper. "This is not the same blend as when I first made them. I wanted the Cabinets to reflect La Flor Dominicana today, which is more of a full body," said Gomez. The La Flor Cameroon Cabinet comes in three sizes: No. 1, which measures 6 1/2 inches by 44 ring gauge; No. 4, which is 6 1/4 inches by 54 ring; and No. 5, at 5 by 50. They retail for $7 to $8.
