The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel is one of the most unique cigars on the market. Its wrapper gleams with oil, the filler is loaded with strong tobacco and the head is shaped like a wedge. Odd as it may seem at first, the wedge shape fits quite comfortably in the mouth. The words “Double Ligero” are as much a warning as they are a descriptor. This is a powerful cigar full of Dominican ligero tobacco—the strongest type—which brand owner Litto Gomez grows on his own farm. As if the blend wasn’t full-bodied enough, the tapered head concentrates the smoke, amping up the intensity, but there’s plenty of charm to the cigar as well, with notes of leather, ground pepper (both red and black) and wood.
