Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jan 01, 1970 | Score: 92

The thickest cigar in our ranking (at 64 ring gauge, it’s a full inch in diameter at its fattest point) the La Flor Dominicana Salomon is beautiful, strong, and complex. The man behind the cigar is Litto Gomez, who has become one of the most intriguing and talented cigarmakers in the world today. This Salomon showcases his considerable talents. His blend of homegrown tobacco from La Canela, Dominican Republic, and a stunning, dark wrapper imported from Nicaragua combines to bombard the palate with bold flavor of black cherry, licorice and rich cocoa.
