The wedge-shaped head that makes the Chisel unique comes from the busy mind of Litto Gomez (see interview page 149), the cigarmaker behind the La Flor Dominicana brand. He was inspired to make the shape while chomping on a torpedo one day during his drive to work in the Dominican Republic. After a while, he found himself enamored with the new, flattened head that his jaws had created, and heinstructed one of his top rollers to recreate the size. Gomez now has Chisels in a variety of forms, and a number of rollers who can make the unusual cigar with ease. The La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet Chisel brings a new flavor to the traditionally robust Chisel blend, showering the palate with notes of spices and nuts with a bit of leather and a sweet nougat finish.
