The Reserva Especial was the result of the most important decision in the history of La Flor Dominicana - the purchase of their own farm where they could grow their own tobacco. This allowed them to completely change their style of cigar from the traditionally mild flavour profile that the Dominican Republic was known for to new blends with extraordinary character, power and flavour.
La Flor Dominicana
La Flor Dominicana is a premium cigar brand that was founded in 1996 by Litto and Ines Gomez. The brand has become known for its bold, full-bodied cigars that are made from high-quality Dominican tobacco.
The La Flor Dominicana cigar factory is located in the heart of the Dominican Republic's tobacco-growing region in the town of Tamboril. The factory produces a range of premium cigars, including the popular Double Ligero and Ligero Cabinet Oscuro lines.
One of the unique features of the La Flor Dominicana cigar factory is that it uses a vertical integration approach to cigar production. This means that the company controls every aspect of the cigar-making process, from growing the tobacco to rolling and packaging the finished product.
Owner Litto Gomez has been referred to as "arguably the most innovative mind in the cigar business" by Cigar Aficionado, which thanks to industry developments such as the patented Chisel tip that can only be found on LFD cigars, is no false statement. Cigar Aficionado also awarded La Flor Dominicana's Andalusian Bull #1 Cigar of the Year in 2016, solidifying their place as one of the leading cigar brands today.
