LFD The Digger & Litto Gomez Cubanito

Null

There’s an interesting story behind these. They are made for someone who named “Digger” who frequents Olde Town Tobacconist in Fredericksburg, VA, nicknamed “Digger.” He loved the DL (Double Ligero) 700, but wished that was about two inches longer. Litto made a few DL700s, that were roughly nine inches long. I tried figuring out if these were the same size as the production versions, but I couldn’t find out. The story according to Gary Spina goes:

“Old or young – anyone’s welcome to sit back here and jaw,” Walter said. “Any point of view – we all get along.” Then they told me about an old fellow they call “Digger.” Actually they told me a lot about Digger they made me promise not to write. They told me how Digger came in one day and met the owner of La Flor Dominicana – of Limbaugh fame. The owner, an old gentleman named Litto Gomez had brought a bottle of some very fine sipping stuff which he offered to Digger. Digger was too polite to turn him down, of course, and the two men got along just fine.
“Your DL 700 is the best cigar I’ve ever smoked,” Digger told him.
“The only trouble is — for my taste — it’s about two inches too short. I’d like to see you make it two inches longer.”
And three weeks later from the Dominican Republic came a box of DL 700’s in a shipment just for Digger – only you couldn’t call them DL 700’s anymore because they were nine inches long. And now Litto Gomez is considering marketing his nine inch cigars under the name of “The Digger.”
