Tasting Note
Litto Gomez began making cigars in Santiago, Dominican Republic, in 1994. Looking back, it would have been easy for anyone to marginalize a newcomer to the industry as someone who wouldn't be around for long. His first cigars, sold under the name Los Libertadores, were quite similar to many others sold at the time, with pale Connecticut-seed wrappers and an easygoing Dominican blend. What a difference time makes. Today Gomez is celebrating 20 years in the industry and he is one of the best-known cigar manufacturers in the world. Anyone who knows cigars will tell you he is here to stay. His Litto Gomez Diez line, launched a decade ago to celebrate 10 years in business, is powerful, distinctive and impossible to ignore.

A long, skinny cigar whose smoke layers the palate with a buttery smoke full of salty woody notes, almonds and a cocoa powder finish.

Well constructed with a pigtail cap. The draw is a bit firm but this cigar immediately shows its exceptionally strong spice. It's balanced by a honey sweetness.
