The Smokin Tabacco Show: Litto Gomez Announces New LFD Cigar “Soleil”

May 12, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

This week with Jon absent we are joined by his boss and LFD owner, Litto Gomez of La Flor Dominicana. Litto spoke to us about the early days of LFD and how it came to be after being robbed at gun point in the jewelry/pawn business. We discuss how LFD performed during the boom of the mid 1990’s, and how they are one of the few companies who survived and took off after. In addition, a Smokin Tabacco exclusive, Litto has announced at PCA 2022 we will see a new cigar called Soleil, which means “The Sun”. According to Litto, this cigar was created by his son Litto Gomez jr. It is considered the opposite of the La Nox – created by his other son Tony Gomez, which means “The Night”. More information to follow.

In our Cigar Industry News segment, brought to you by Micallef Cigars, we talk about the return of the Herrera Esteli Lanceros. More information can be found here: Return of Herrera Esteli Lanceros

In the Room101 Top 3 Segment, Litto talks about his favorite alcohol and why he almost exclusively uses foam cups for all of his drinks.
