La Flor Dominicana has shipped one of its headlining new releases from this summer’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, La Nox.
The new line goes dark with everything, from the packaging to the wrapper to the name, which means the night. Tony Gomez of La Flor Dominicana called it a bit of a departure from what the company has been doing lately, particularly in moving back towards more middle-of-the-road ring gauges.
The cigar comes in a single 6 1/2 x 50 vitola, with a blend of the darkest Brazilian wrappers the company could find over a Mexican San Andrés binder and Dominican fillers from the company’s La Canela farms, including piloto and pelo de oro tobaccos, resulting in a medium-to-full body, but with the promise of smoothness.
It comes in distinctive, round boxes of ten cigars, with a single stick MSRP of $11 per cigar, or $110 per box, before taxes. The presentation is also a new direction for LFD, as it will be the first time a box of the company’s cigars has used magnets to keep it closed. The box and the band feature a partial moon and cloud scene said to be inspired by the art of Vincent Van Gogh.
While it will be limited in its production at the company’s Tabacalera La Flor S.A. factory in the Dominican Republic, it will be an ongoing release, according to Gomez.
