Country: Dominican Republic
The Litto Gomez Diez Lusitano is a full-bodied cigar that had an amazing flavor profile with flavors not seen that often in a cigar. This kind of cigar is comprised of all Dominican tobacco which is somewhat rare because its hard to find all the usable parts to make a cigar from all Dominican tobaccos. This cigar was also created to celebrate La Flor Dominicana’s 10th year in the cigar business. The Litto had an oily wrapper with a nice sheen when in the light with few veins, decently tight pack, and overall great construction. It had pre-light flavors of a pepper spice with a leather and wood aswell. The initial light had a smooth, easy draw with the spice coming on first and then a sweet anise flavor washing right after that. The aroma of the grayish smoke was comparable to a pipe smoker’s smoke being a sweet aromatic smell. The first third was mainly comprised of a woody pepper and a sweet anise. When transitioning into the second third the pepper was there just as before but the anise was replaced with rich, sweet cedar that complimented the pepper perfectly almost like they were playing tag with each other. The ash was white and firm and the burn was a little up and down but, evened itself out without me doing anything to it. The second third also had a nutty leather that was more dominant than the pepper. As for the finish the spice remained strong along with the nuttiness but, as for the sweet flavors they were in and out along with the occasional leather flavor. Overall this cigar was very good the flavors were unique and different from ones regular cigar. I recommend this cigar with one that has a palate that enjoys a stronger, rich smoke.
