La Flor Dominicana has announced that they will be showing off a new cigar, Solis, for PCA 2022. This project is the brainchild of Litto Gomez Jr., son of Litto Gomez and little brother to Tony Gomez, both public figures in the company. Solis comes from the Latin word “sol” meaning sun. Litto Jr. come up with and worked on this project slowly over the last few years during his breaks from college where he spent time with his father and brother at the LFD factory in Tamboril.

"First I really enjoyed this cigar. It’s aesthetic value, even before cutting, had me excited to get started. Toothy flavor bumps did not disappoint. I really am having difficulty finding any misgivings about this smoke. Draw, finish, flavors, transitions, construction, burn, etc ....all impeccable!" -Randy B. (randobush)

"Phew, after smoking this I need a nap... it was strong! Quite a bit of flavors going on at the start but this mellows out into a standard flavor profile as the pure strength of this smoke overwhelmed what other complexities there could have been. If you want a full full full flavored and nic buzz, hey try this out would ya? I enjoyed it, but not something I could smoke quite often!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
La Flor Dominicana has announced a new cigar, the Golden Bull, but it will not be sold in a way that has been done before. The company will sell an NFT for the cigar. Owners of that NFT will then have access to purchase the cigar. With only 7 NFT's being sold, the availability of the cigar will be very limited. An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token, meaning a digital representation of a real-world object that cannot be copied or stolen. They run on the same technology, Blockchain, as cryptocurrencies.

"I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There's a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it's nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. " -John I. (John I.)

"This was probably one of my most favorite reviews that I have done. I was dreading initially smoking this cigar only because of the vitola and amount of time I knew was required. However, as soon as the first third started and the flavor profile showed itself, I was hooked. Between the good balance of earth and barnyard, to the coffee and creamy finish, this cigar had an overall complexity that was second to none. You will need to block off a solid amount of time, but by no means will you be disappointed. This cigar will go well with coffee, libations, or a Pepsi. Enjoy these as much as possible." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
