Country: Dominican Republic
Size: Corona Gorda 5.7″ x 46 Ring
This Dominican Puro is Litto Gomez’s 10th Anniversary cigar. It is made exclusively from tobacco grown on his farm. The wrapper is a handsome looking, oily leaf with a reddish brown color. It’s color makes it look a lot like a Rosado wrapper. There are very small veins all across it’s surface. It is expertly applied with a neat cap and no rib veins visible in the filler. It appears to be a very well made cigar.
Don Litto has gained a reputation for making some of the strongest, full bodied smokes on the market today. That reputation is why this cigar surprised me. It was medium bodied at best, almost mild. The flavors were surprisingly one dimensional as well, although pleasant. From start to finish all I got from this cigar was wood and a creamy, toasted tobacco. It had very little strength to speak of. Not at all what I was expecting from a cigar made by Litto Gomez.
The construction was excellent. It burned evenly and the ash was well formed and held firm although just a little papery around the edges. The draw was excellent and it burned very cool. I found it to be a good cigar but not a great one, overpriced for what you get out of it.
