La Flor Dominicana Football Edition Is Back Again

La Flor Dominicana Football Edition Is Back Again

The NFL regular season is halfway over, and while no one knows for sure which teams will be meeting in February’s Super Bowl LIII, one thing is certain: La Flor Dominicana is once again releasing a special football cigar.

The 2019 La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition (Factory Press) measures 6 1/2 inches by 58 ring gauge and is, like the name implies, sharply pressed. It’s rolled with Dominican filler tobaccos and a Dominican binder, covered by Ecuadoran Habano wrapper. To drive home the theme, the cigar includes a football design on its wrapper made out of Connecticut Shade, as well as stripes on the head and foot that resemble the laces of a football.

Since Super Bowl 49 in 2015, La Flor Dominicana has created a special football-themed smoke that’s only available to buy in the state that is hosting the big game. The La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition (Factory Press) will carry on this tradition, as it will be sold exclusively through Georgia retailers. This season’s Super Bowl will be held on February 3, 2019, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Special Football Edition (Factory Press) will come in 10-count boxes and is expected to begin shipping in mid-January 2019. While production and prices haven’t yet been determined, last year’s football cigar retailed for $16 per cigar and 450 boxes were released.
