Litto Gomez and his family have come a long way since he was a jewellery salesman in Toronto. From humble beginnings as a cigar maker, Litto has grown La Flor Dominicana Cigars into a global powerhouse. In 2016 his Andalusian Bull won the cigar world’s ulitmate prize, the #1 spot on the Cigar Aficionado Magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year.
Litto has always been cutting edge and that is why he created the chisel. This is a proprietary design where the cigar has a flattened wedge at the top, hence the name chisel. We like it because you can easily pinch off the tip – no cutter needed. However, according to Litto, he designed the chisel so you could punch the flat surface; in theory, this allows the smoke to roll across the palate, creating an enhanced smoking experience. Frankly, no matter which method you choose, you will find these cigars to be full-bodied flavour bombs.
This sampler pack has five of the finest blends ever produced in the Dominican Republic. They are:
Chisel Maduro – A full-bodied blend of estate grown Dominican filler and binder in a gorgeous Habano wrapper. A smoking experience that will keep you fastened to your chair asking for more! A very smooth, flavourful cigar with lots of body. This version has a maduro wrapper.
Chisel Natural – A full-bodied blend of estate grown Dominican filler and binder in a gorgeous Habano wrapper. A smoking experience that will keep you fastened to your chair asking for more! A very smooth, flavourful cigar with lots of body. This version has a natural wrapper.
Chisel Coronado – LFD’s second most highly-awarded blend. The Coronado, winner of the #2 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year for 2006, features its original and distinct blend of Dominican fillers and binder complemented by a sun grown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. It is rich in body and its flavours are among the most complex in the LFD portfolio. The Coronado is undoubtedly a unique smoking experience among an already unique lineup of cigars.
Chisel Cameroon Cabinet – Cameroon Cabinets are very limited because LFD only uses aged Ligero Cameroon wrappers, dark and oily. The result is a smooth full-bodied cigar.
Chisel Ligero – After years of aging estate-grown Ligero tobaccos, LFD was ready for their first ”full-bodied cigar”. The wrapper is Ecuadorian Sumatra with estate grown Dominican filler and binder. The flavor is outstanding!
