Litto Gomez, the man in the hat, has built a reputation for creating powerhouse cigars, and this Air Bender Chisel lives up to those expectations. Not for the beginner, nor a great choice to smoke on an empty stomach, the Chisel has a combination of sweet cocoa buttressed by spicy licorice, savory leather and plenty of spice. The Chisel—one of the cigar world’s more intriguing shapes—has been around since Gomez created it in 2003. He was driving to his cigar factory one morning, chewing on a normal figurado, and by the time he arrived to work the head was flattened into a wedge shape. He showed it to one of his rollers, and the Chisel was born.
