The La Flor Dominicana Litto Gomez Diez Cubano is the first cigar produced by La Flor Dominicana that uses only tobacco grown on it's own farm. Blending this cigar was a multi-year process that it seems many are happy with the results of. Growing the wrapper, binder, and filler on their own farms make this one of only a few Dominican puros available on the market today.
The cigar itself is a tan leather color with a small amount of tooth. The aroma from the foot and wrapper is almost all chocolate and cinnamon. The pre-light draw gives us sweet wood, tobacco, and a small bit of pepper. The first third brings creamy nut flavors mixed with that wood and a blast of pepper before mellowing into that creamy nutty flavor. The 2nd third is more of the 1st only with much more pronounced and present flavors. They didn't really change, they just intensified in a really good way. The nicotine is definitely kicking in now, this is one powerful cigar. Somehow, the flavors just continue on for the final third as the body just continues to power through like a freight train. Folks make sure to eat before you smoke these Litto Gomez Diez sticks, you'll thank me later.
The burn line was wavy at times but always corrected itself, the ash held for an 1”+ despite being flaky at times, and the draw opened up after the 1st third. All told this is a great stick from one of the powerhouses in the Dominican cigar market. Pick up a few singles and try them. Who knows, you might end up with a box. Don't forget to also try the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero series. The DL-700 and the Chisel are favorites here at Cigar Place.
