The Ligeros, Air Benders and Suaves join the Limitado V, Oro and Crystal lines in their new, distinguished tubos packaging.


 


The year 2013 brought several changes for La Flor Dominicana as the company introduced tubes to three of its established lines of cigars for the first time. The news was announced at the IPCPR industry trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this year, along with a number of other new products. Only a year ago in 2012, the company announced the Oro and Crystal (Double Ligero) tubes lines, also packaged in eye-catching “tubos” said to be reminiscent of the founder's days as a jeweler. Two sizes each of the Ligero, Suave and Air Bender lines have since been included in this packaging makeover in 2013, each with its own unique design, available in 10-count boxes.



 


Litto Gomez founded LFD in 1996 and has since become a forerunner in the cigar production industry. The Gomez family operates a tobacco farm in La Canela, Dominican Republic, as well as a modern factory under direct family supervision. The company has gained a reputation of quality and consistency as it quickly and willingly adjusts to the constantly evolving tastes and preferences of aficionados around the world, offering an immense and versatile portfolio of products catering to the likes of cigar aficionados globally.



LIGEROLa Flor Dominicana Tubes are now available for Three of their most popular lines.



The La Flor Dominicana Ligero features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The binder and filler consist of Dominican La Canela leaves. La Flor Dominicana Ligero tubes come in 250 and 100 versions -- 4 ¾ x48 and 5 ½ x42, respectively. Some say the 100 appears to be a corona-size stogie, possibly to add this type of vitola to the lineup.


 


Described by reviewers as beautifully made, with a sweet wood flavor punctuated by a taste of cherries, this cigar is medium to full bodied, with a complexity just waiting to be released to the fullest. The tobacco is estate-grown and aged onsite on the premises of tobacconist Litto Gomez in Santiago. Smokers say this “masterfully crafted powerhouse” stogie promises plenty of “kick”.

Named “Suave” for smooth, this blend was the first in Litto Gomez’ production line. Described as mild and elegant, it is said to deliver a host of soft flavors for the smoker’s enjoyment.

La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Tubes in distinctive red with black and gold.AIR BENDER



The La Flor Dominicana Air Benders in tubes are said to sneak up on the smoker like a ninja to deliver the “coup de grace.” Reviewers say bold cedar and leather flavors intermingle pleasantly with “generous amounts of pepper.” One of the company’s premier full-bodied products, this stogie is available in both Matatan and Ponderosa versions, sized at 5x50 and 5 ½ x42. Made of estate-grown filler and binder, it features a Habano wrapper.
