In 2012, La Flor Dominicana took the big cigar market to new extremes, when it created a larger version of its already gigantic The Digger for a retailer in New Hampshire; now the extra large cigar is back.

La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger (2015)

The La Flor Dominicana Meaner Digger, a 10 x 60 barberpole, will return to Tobacco Haven of Brookline, N.H. next week. It features the same Ecuadorian sun grown natural and maduro wrappers and Dominican fillers in a ridiculously-imposing shape.

Pricing has increased one dollar, meaning the cigar is now $15, and there will only 75 boxes of 20—compared to 100 boxes in 2012—made for this release. The other change is the packaging, which now sees a much cleaner box design.

While the cigars will go on sale Monday, a formal party is planned for July 10.
