2013 Cigar Aficionado Rating 94
The words “refined power” shine through this cigar like the gold tubes that encase them. A true powerhouse backed with extraordinary flavour. Before he made cigars, Litto Gomez was a jeweler, so when he created a new cigar line in 2012 he decided to pay homage to his former career. His Oro line – oro is Spanish for gold – is made with his home-grown.
Dominican tobacco from La Canela under a dark, high-priming wrapper from Nicaragua. The La Flor Dominicana Oro Chisel brings a new taste to Gomez’s trademark figurado size. It’s considerably strong with spicy leather and tingly ginger on the palate, plus hearty hickory wood. The handsome cigars come packed in distinctive golden tubes.
