L.G. Diez Lancero in the Works

L.G. Diez Lancero in the Works

Litto Gomez, who loves the lancero size and counts several in his portfolio, is adding one of the long, thin cigars to his L.G. Diez line of Dominican puros.

Cigar Insider visited the Tabacalera La Flor factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic in early February. The small facility rolls every La Flor Dominicana and Coronado by La Flor cigar.

Gomez had just asked one of his workers to create an L.G. Diez lancero, and Cigar Insider smoked the first samples of the size along with the cigarmaker, fresh from the rolling table.

"Most likely it will become part of the line because of my love for the lancero," said Gomez, puffing on one of the fresh smokes.

Gomez said the cigar could be out in shops as soon as next month.
