Earlier this year, La Flor Dominicana showed off a beer stein as part of the company’s 20th anniversary releases. Turns out—it’s actually just one vitola of a five-cigar line that will pay tribute to the Litto and Ines Gomez’s 20 years in the cigar business.
The cigar is called La Flor Dominicana 1994, a nod to the year the company was founded. The cigar itself uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over Dominican binder and fillers. It will come in four regular production sizes Aldaba (6 x 58, $8.30), Conga (5 x 52, $7.50), Mambo (7 x 54, $8.20) and Rumba (6 1/2 x 52, $7.80). All four of those sizes will come in boxes of 20. There’s also the Beer Stein, which refers both to the packaging, but also to the 6 x 54 limited edition cigar that will come inside. The 1994 Beer Stein is limited to 5,000 units of 20.
The company has not set pricing for the Beer Stein, but is expected to when the cigar ships in September.
In an interview with halfwheel, Litto Gomez indicated the company had been working on the cigar for some time and promised that it would be a full-bodied cigar.
