The La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary will debut next Friday at an event at the Davidoff of Geneva since 1911 store in Brooklyn, N.Y.
It is a 7 x 52 Churchill that uses an Ecuadorian wrapper over a Dominican binder and Dominican fillers. The cigar is a limited edition, though the company has declined to disclose production numbers.
Pricing is $18 per cigar and it is packaged in boxes of 25.
For its event with Litto Gomez, Davidoff of Geneva Brooklyn—which is a franchise store owned by the same company behind Matador Cigars—is selling tickets to the event for $650 which include a box of La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary, a box of La Flor Dominicana Unreleased and an S.T.Dupont miniJet lighter.
The La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary doesn’t actually celebrate 25 years of La Flor Dominicana, rather, 25 years of Litto and Ines Gomez being in the cigar industry. Gomez’s first cigar was called Los Libertadores, which was started with another partner in 1994. Two years later—after disputes with their parnter—the Gomez family opened La Flor Dominicana.
Jon Carney, vp of sales for La Flor Dominicana, told halfwheel the cigars will begin shipping nationally next month.
