One of the most exciting products to debut at this years annual IPCPR trade show was the La Flor Dominicana Casa de Tabaco. La Flor Dominicana owner Litto Gomez has always been tremendously innovative, both in blending and in packaging. From his "Chisel" shaped cigars, to "Factory Press" boxes, he undoubtedly excels in creativity, and his quality and consistency in his cigars themselves is superb. His newest creation, the Casa de Tabaco, is no exception.
The cigar is the newest addition to his already successful "Air Bender" line. This one however- is the first ever Maduro version. At 6 1/2" x 54, this hefty toro features the same fundamental blend as the standard Air Bender featuring Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos, however it's finished with a Brazilian Habano Maduro wrapper.
The box is a replica of the traditional curing barns used to hang and dry tobacco after harvest. Each Casa contains 24 of these special cigars. The box also has a slot for a "Humidipak" to humidify the interior, as well as a small accessories drawer to keep a cutter or lighter... or stash some cash for your "cigar fund". These boxes should retail for about $360 PLUS applicable taxes.
The Nat Sherman Townhouse is the company's flagship store located at 12 East 42nd Street, just off Fifth Avenue in New York City. http://www.natsherman.com/
