La Flor Dominicana Chisel Sampler

Master cigar-maker Litto Gomez has been crafting the popular boutique brand, La Flor Dominicana, since the early 1990s. Gomez pioneered a unique shape in 2003, called the Chisel, with a flattened Torpedo head that concentrates the flavor in an original and popular format. Despite the cigar’s narrow end, it delivers a copious, easy-burning draw and melds a wealth of complex nuances. The La Flor Dominicana Chisel Sampler presents this distinctive shape in five highly rated blends. Litto’s focus on potent, Ligero-heavy recipes shows off a signature of intense but balanced Dominican spices in a hearty variety of wrapper options. LFD Cameroon Cabinet weaves an intricate tapestry of sweet and peppery flavors with a touch of hickory. LFD Coronado Chisel features notes of leather, caramel, and black pepper with an oily Nicaraguan wrapper leaf. LFD Double Ligero delivers potent Dominican taste in both a Sungrown wrapper from Ecuador and a resonant jet-black Maduro leaf. Woody aromas follow a rich profile of raisins, dark chocolate, and hot peppers. The original single Ligero blend is also rich, but slightly less intense. La Flor Dominicana is particularly appreciated by fans of medium to full-bodied cigars. Indulge your curiosity over an innovative cigar shape from a respected and artful blender of small-batch Dominican gems.

Sampler includes:
1 - La Flor Dominicana Ligero Chisel (6 x 54)
1 - La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel Maduro (6 x 54)
1 - La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel (6 x 54)

Ashton VSG Assortment

The Ashton VSG Assortment is an excellent sampler to experience a vertical cigar tasting. In a vertical tasting, you get to smoke one blend in a variety of shapes and sizes. As a result, you can truly perceive the way that length and ring gauge influence the way you taste a cigar’s blend. Thinner cigars tend to burn hotter and faster than shapes with a thicker ring size, and longer cigars deliver milder flavor than shorter formats because the heat is further away from your palate when you light up. VSG is blended by the world-renowned cigar-maker Carlito Fuente in the Dominican Republic from premium Dominican long-fillers and a shimmering Ecuador Sumatra wrapper leaf aged to perfection. Luscious notes of cedar, leather, and espresso accompany a touch of black pepper. The Ashton VSG Assortment is an easy choice for fans of full-bodied cigars.

Sampler includes:
1 - Ashton VSG Wizard (6 x 56)
1 - Ashton VSG Sorcerer (7 x 49)
1 - Ashton VSG Torpedo (6.5 x 55)
1 - Ashton VSG Eclipse (6 x 52)
1 - Ashton VSG Robusto (5.5 x 50)
