Novelty from La Flor Dominicana

Submitted by Oliver on December 29, 2011 – 6:33 amNo Comment

La Flor Dominicana company knows no rest when it comes to cigars. They have recently released 3 new cigars for Holidays: the Chisel with a Cameroon wrapper, the Factory Press IV and the La Flor Dominicana Small Batch IV.

The brand possessor Litto Gomez made it a rule for the past 3 years to release a Small Batch line every year and a half. The Small Batch IV of this year is constructed from Dominican tobacco and is distinctive for its Pelo de Oro seed wrapper cultivated at Gomez’s La Canela farm.

According to Mr Gomez, he never used this wrapper before but is amazed on the impact it had over the older tobacco blends in cigars which are from 2006. The Pelo de Oro seed wrapper is two years old and adds much sweetness to the older tobacco in that blend.
The length of these cigars is 7 inches with a 52 ring gauge; they come in packages of 105, each cigar worth $19. The quantity is limited, with only 240 boxes released to the market.

The other cigar released – Factory Press IV- is a squared-pressed stogie, 6 ½ inches long with a 60 ring gauge. This fatty baby is designed for those who like bigger smokes to enjoy them after meal. They are packaged in slotted trays, each stogie being protected by a separate plank. The cigar is rolled from wrapper of Mexican origin and Dominican binder and filler.

Litto Gomez said he purchased the Mexican wrapper a few years ago but let it age and ferment for a period to blend well with other components. Now that he finally liked its flavor, the wrapper was blended with another tobacco.
The price of such cigars is $11 for each; they come in boxes of 120 cigars that hold 10 trays of 12 pressed cigars. This is a limited edition, with only 300 boxes released.

The last cigar from this lot is a limited edition version of Chisel sampler with a Cameroon wrapper. Gomez made up his mind to create the brand Chisel and release it in a limited version this month only.

The Cameroon wrapper Chisel was very popular among consumers, so La Flor Dominicana received many requests both from retailers and cigar smokers to continue its release. They did release the cigars but didn’t want to make them as a regular line, releasing total of 500 boxes.

The Chisel with Cameroon wrapper cigar is blended off La Flor Dominicana’s Cameroon Cabinet line. However it is not intended as strong bodied as the Double Ligero Chisel, but it won’t be too mild either. They come in boxes of 20 and will cost $8 each.
