La Flor Dominicana Ships La Nox

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.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
