Litto Gomez had said the Icepick would return, today that comes true. At an event at Michael’s Tobacco of Euless, Gomez will debut the La Flor Dominicana N.A.S., a 5 1/2 x 42 Cheroot made entirely of Dominican pelo de oro ligero from his La Canela farms.

In 2008, La Flor Dominicana released the La Flor Dominicana Cheroot, better known as the Ice Pick, as a limited release for Empire Cigars of Raleigh, N.C. Like the N.A.S., the Ice Pick feature a blend that was entirely ligero.

Early reports are that the N.A.S., which has already carries the name “nasty-ass shit,” continues the trend of being almost overwhelmingly strong.

Only 50 boxes of 20 are set for the release, exclusively at the Texas retailer with pricing set at $8.69 per cigar. There are murmurs that the cigar might see a wider distribution at a later date, but nothing has been confirmed.

Town & County/Michael’s Tobacco (817.358.8862) will begin taking phone orders November 22.
