Tasting Note
Before he made cigars, Litto Gomez was a jeweler, so when he created a new cigar line in 2012 he decided to pay homage to his former career. His Oro line—oro is Spanish for gold—is made with his home-grown Dominican tobacco from La Canela under a dark, high-priming wrapper from Nicaragua. The La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel brings a new taste to Gomez's trademark figurado size. It's considerably strong (would you expect anything less from a Chisel?) with spicy leather and tingly ginger on the palate, plus hearty hickory wood. The handsome cigars come packed in distinctive golden tubes.
