La Flor Dominicana has announced plans for a new limited edition cigar that calls awareness to men’s health and benefits the Movember Foundation.
The Litto Gomez Mustache is a 6 1/2 x 60 that will be released on Dec. 16 as part of an in-person and online cigar event called “An Evening of Appreciation” hosted by Empire Social Lounge in Miami. The cigar is the same blend as the 2020 version of the Litto Gomez Diez line—which has not yet been released—meaning it is a Dominican puro that uses tobacco from the company’s 2016 crop. The one add-on to that blend is a piece of Dominican oscuro tobacco that has been cut in the shape of a mustache and will sit on the front of the cigar.
It is packaged in five-count cedar-lined bundles, with just 500 cigar produced for the event. Pricing is set at $15 per cigar and it will only be available through Empire Social Lounge beginning the evening of the event.
The event is the creation of Litto Daniel Gomez, the son of Ines and Litto Gomez, founders of La Flor Dominicana. The company said that the event will be a way “to give back and appreciate the struggles we all face during these challenging times with a focus on men’s mental health.” It will also be a fundraiser for those in need while providing an escape to a more normal environment that we all used to enjoy regularly. The event will feature appearances by Ines Lorenzo-Gomez, Litto Daniel Gomez and Jon Carney, La Flor Dominicana’s vp of sales. For those attending in-person, there will be entertainment, craft cocktails and gourmet food.
The in-person event begins at 6pm ET, while the online portion will be streamed via La Flor Dominicana’s Facebook page beginning at 7pm ET. Tickets are not required to attend.
Shortly after this story was published, La Flor Dominicana updated the original information about the event, noting that Ines Lorenzo-Gomez will be in attendance at the event, while Litto Gomez’s attendance has not yet been confirmed.
