With its gold tubo and striking golden band, the La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel is a subtle nod to brand owner Litto Gomez’s days as a jeweler before entering the cigar business. Now, his precious material is tobacco, most of which he grows himself on his La Canela farm in the Dominican Republic. The drier climate allows him to produce the stronger, spicier tobaccos that his cigars are known for. Oro Chisel is composed mainly of Gomez’s leaf, save for the Nicaraguan wrapper, which is similar to that found on his Coronado line, only a higher priming, for more strength. As if that wasn’t enough, the wedge-shaped head concentrates the smoke, making it even stronger.
