Tasting Note
Litto Gomez used to make only mild cigars. His Double Ligero Chisel is quite the opposite. Loaded with leathery, brawny flavor accented by black pepper notes, the cigar is powered by Gomez’s homegrown filler and binder and finished with a rich, dark leaf of Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador by the Oliva family. It’s a cigar that can’t be ignored, from its bold flavor to its distinctive head, which resembles the mouthpiece of a woodwind instrument or the hand tool that gives this cigar its name. Ligero is the strongest type of filler tobacco, and Gomez aptly warns the smoker of the extra kick to this 6 by 54 figurado.

Despite the chisel shape, this unusual cigar draws well, and is strong yet balanced with leathery, peppery notes, earthy undertones and a floral finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2005 | Score: 91

A great, wedge-headed shape that’s well-made, with a dark and streaky wrapper. It smokes well. This is a very strong cigar with spice and wood flavors, plus a hint of orange peel. Full bodied.

An intriguing, interesting figurado with a head like that on a saxophone. It's full bodied, with spicy, coffee and leather notes. Full bodied.
