One of the few cigar manufacturers who doesn’t claim to have descended from 3 generations of Cuban cigar makers, is Litto Gomez. Perhaps because of that, he works harder than anyone I know to match the authentic Cuban smoking experience. Litto grows Cuban seed Dominican tobaccos on his own farm, using time tested Cuban methods. He cures them Cuban style and rolls them Cuban style. La Flor Dominicana is a 90 rating brand if I ever smoked one. It is Cuban to the core. Not a cigar for the novice but made to order for demanding smokers who ask more of a cigar than a pleasant diversion for 45 minutes... La Flor Dominicana is truly a memorable smoke.
The Gurkha Havana Selection is handmade in Danli, Honduras with an ultra-secret blend of Cuban-seed long fillers and a brilliant Connecticut Broadleaf binder and Maduro wrapper. The combination is one of the most expensive collections of cigar leaf tobaccos ever put on a cigar, but the taste is nothing short of spectacular.While supplies last get 3 Gurkha European cigars plus a mug set ($60 value) with box purchase.
Produced in the My Father cigar factory, famed factory of Don Pepin cigars, the new Jaime Garcia Reserve Especiale delivers on taste and quality. Some of the best cigars to come out of Nicaragua have been produced in this factory and this cigar is no different. A dark, oily wrapper accentuates the Nicaraguan filler and delivers a medium to full bodied smoke.
