L.G. Diez Lancero


Litto Gomez, founder of the La Flor Dominicana Cigar brand, created his L.G. Diez line to commemorate ten years of business for La Flor Dominicana. This is reflected in the line's name, as diez translates to ten in English, with the L.G. Obviously standing for Litto Gomez himself. When the line was originally introduced, there were five different sizes available. That is about to change, however, as Gomez plans to add a sixth size, the Lancero, to the L.G. Diez line.

The main reasoning behind this new size addition to the line is Gomez' personal attraction to the Lancero size with its thin, long, and somewhat elegant profile. Since the original offerings of the L.G. Diez were successful in garnering critical praise, one can expect that when the Lancero becomes available, it should be just as good. The setting for its production is likely in the Dominican Republic at the Tabacalera La Flor factory, where other La Flor Dominicana cigars are made.

The L.G. Diez line's members are all Dominican puros, made of 100 percent Dominican tobacco. They are also full-bodied, and the Lancero should be the same. Although it is not yet available, keep your eyes open in the coming months for the L.G. Diez Lancero, especially if you enjoy Dominican puros or full-bodied sticks.

LegendArio Connecticut


As somewhat of a change in style for Camacho Cigars, the brand has decided to release a cigar line that uses Dominican tobacco and a Connecticut Shade wrapper with its introduction of the LegendArio Connecticut. This is different from many cigars released in the past by Camacho, who has made a habit out of using Honduran tobacco for its cigars. The only other cigar with a similar composition from Camacho is the Camacho Connecticut, which was released last year.

This current move towards Dominican tobacco is believed to be a sign of things to come for Camacho, as they were acquired by Davidoff two years ago. What makes the Davidoff acquisition of Camacho significant in this matter is that Davidoff is known for using Dominican tobacco themselves, and are likely adopting the same techniques with Camacho as well.

As stated, the LegendArio Connecticut has an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, and a filler blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. This new release differs from the original LegendArio, which featured only Honduran ingredients. Like the original, however, the LegendArio Connecticut is said to be medium-bodied.

The LegendArio Connecticut should be hitting stores any day now, and it will come in boxes of 25. There are three sizes that will be offered: the Toro, the Figurado, and the bulky Bertha. All of the sizes will have a suggested retail price of $6.50 per single.

Camacho fans who are interested in seeing how the brand fares with this shift in cigar making should go out and pick up a LegendArio Connecticut as soon as they can.
