Recently receiving an outstanding 90-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine in the April 2015 issue!
When it comes to making a great first impression, La Flor Dominicana 1994 definitely accomplishes that. This cigar is impressive from beginning to end which is a great cigar to commemorate La Flor Dominicana's 20th anniversary celebration. Litto and Ines Gomez's embarked in a journey in 1994 to start a cigar company after shutting down their jewelry store in Miami's North Beach neighborhood.
Then, in 1997, La Flor Dominicana began growing their very own tobacco when they acquired the La Canela farm in the Dominican Republic. When you hold a La Flor Dominicana cigar, you'll notice that the wrapper has a beautiful rustic brown color, the wrapper is very smooth and the cigar band has a classic design with a gold foil with maroon background and a purplish flower. Once you light the cigar, you'll smell rich notes of leather, wood, coffee, cinnamon, and spice.
La Flor Dominicana stated that, "In honor of our 20th anniversary we have created a very special cigar uniquely packaged in a beautiful porcelain beer stein. The cigar is made with tobaccos that were set aside several years ago in anticipation of this very special occasion. The complex and powerful flavors of this cigar originate from the best fillers and binder grown on our farm in the Dominican Republic and are complemented with a sweet and savory Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. This blend is as special as the occasion it serves to commemorate and is symbolic of the quality and pride with which La Flor Dominicana has built its name. The packaging is a toast to our friends and loyal fans that have supported us over the years. It is because of them that our passion for making cigars is as strong as it has ever been. Cheers!"
