"Overall, this was a wonderful straight-forward cigar with a medium to medium plus body, providing wonderful notes of almonds, leather, sweetness, and some pepper here and there. A few touchups were required to the wrapper, however, overall construction and burn were on par with a premium cigar. Clocking in with a smoke time of 90 minutes, you’ll need ample time to sit down & sip on this smoke. I’d recommend trying this one out, it may become your new favorite!" -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)
