In 1994, Litto Gomez and his wife, Ines Lorenzo, left behind a successful jewelry business in favor of a more romantic future in the world of premium cigars. And while the couple didn’t launch the La Flor Dominicana name that consumers now gravitate towards until 1996, the Gomez family has consistently referenced their 1994 beginnings in the industry as the basis for La Flor Dominicana’s anniversary offerings. As such, 2019 saw the introduction of a gold-enshrined collection under the La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary banner. This included a limited-edition cigar, as well as an 18-karat solid-gold cigar cutter that was limited to 88 in production, with a retail price of $16,000. And while the cigar itself is not quite as costly, it embodies the opulent sentiments—including a substantial piano-lacquer-finished box, gold-emulated bands, and choice tobaccos—worthy of the luxury-class cigar designation.

La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary has been constructed from an all-Dominican interior, harvested from the Gomez family’s farms throughout the Dominican Republic. This core recipe was then finished with an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper that is said to be similar to the company’s acclaimed Andalusian Bull, but with a higher-priming selection. Rolled in a singular 7″ x 52 format, the 25th Anniversary does its best to deliver enough value to justify its luxurious price point, burning for nearly two-and-a-half hours. The experience is firmly medium in body, allowing smooth and creamy complexities to take center stage. The smoke engulfs every region of the palate, though primarily registering on the mouthwatering, sweet, and salty ends of the flavor spectrum. Highlight flavors of frosted corn flakes, floral sweetness, cola, caramel corn, and milk and honey are countered by a sensational tartness of the cut tobaccos against the tongue, offering one of the most enjoyable experiences to date from a company that continues to prove its commanding position in the premium cigar market.
